"Great fit for women's feet, comfy, arches don't hurt!"
Before purchasing this boot, the new "RS" model, I was skate skiing in "combi" boots, meaning boots you can trad/classic ski and skate in. The problem is, the two types of skiing need totally different modes of function; so a "combi boot" is not a good idea... even for an average recreational skate skier like me. You will be saving $, but your arches will kill, and your form will suffer. Trad/classic skiing need a boot that flexes, while skate skiing needs a stiffer base with minimal toe/ball of foot flex. Therefore the 'combi' or crossover boot is NOT your answer. Skip a few mocha lattes and buy the better boot! This year I decided to go for it and get one of the best boots out there. I went to a local store to try on boots for the best fit. I feel bad for the local store, but getting the best fit is important. I usually wear a 41 or 42 Euro about a 9.5 USA, yet the 40 2/3 Salomon size fit me perfectly. They have a weirde sizing system with thirds... weird. I prefer a snug fit and can not stand any movement within any ski/snowboarding boot. I tried on both men's and women's Fischer and Salomon boots. The men's were not snug enough, giving me too much wiggle room. The women's boots fit well; the Salomon fitting me a tad bit better. I have long feet, in medium width, with medium to high arches. The problem is, my feet at skinny and boney... or "low volume". If you are a man with this problem, I would recommend a women's boot; really. Caitlyn Jenner would agree with me. The folks at my local retail store were trying to convince me to get $150 custom fitted inserts, too pricey. I went ahead and got the newest model of these Vitane Carbons, labeled "RS" on the actual boot. There are other cheaper older year models online, but I am writing about the current 2015/15 "RS" model. I did not want to sacrifice fit for value. I went ahead and ordered from OMC, my boots get here right away. They fit perfectly and function well; my arches no longer ache after skate skiing. I saved myself $100!!! plus taxes, so happy about that. OMC had the cheapest price on the net, free shipping, no taxes. I have never spent so much on a XC boot, yet I feel it is well worth it. Be sure to have compatible bindings. Not the NNN system, but the SNS system. There are two, the SNS profile, and the SNS pilot. You will need the SNS PILOT (a better binding) for these amazing boots! I also ski and snowboard in Salomon boots, because they fit my medium width, low volume boney feet so well! Good luck!~Harper's Mom
