Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good test I really put these new shoes to the test in Colorado. I was skate skiing at Ghost Mt. Ranch near Granby CO and the boots, while not skate specific, had the side support needed and did OK. I am sure they would be ideal for classic. The test was when I was dumb enough to follow my brother-in-law who had classic skis out on a frozen lake. He stayed on top with his wide skis and I sunk to the waist. My ski was turned backwards and came off as I pulled my foot out. I was so afraid that I broke the binding on the ski or ripped the binding on the boot but neither occurred! You never go wrong buying good equipment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly I used these a dozen times this winter on outings of 12-16 miles. The Good: They were a big improvement over my other boots and seem well made ... kept feet warm and secure. The Bad: Really bothered my foot at the toe crease line, especially the right foot. The Ugly: At the end of the season I noticed a bony growth forming at the base of my right big toe - not cool. I suppose it was just too many miles for my toe to tolerate the painful toe crease of the boot. Needless to say I won't be using them next year. I suggest you try them on in a store and do a lot of foot flexing as you do when skiing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still waiting for snow - Sizing Review Still waiting for our first snow, so I can't review them on their performance. This review is about the sizing. Even though I wear a 10.5/45 EUR (every other kind of shoe) I ordered an 11/46 EUR due to the thicker socks I wear while skiing. They fit perfectly and are not too snug. Hopefully that helps anyone who is concerned about sizing. Bring on the snow!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Follow up review I've worn the boots 3 times now and their perfect. I wear one pair of Merino wool socks and my feet stay warm the entire time I'm out, usually about 90 minutes. I have no complaints.

How do these boots fit? Need to size up? I have a Salomon boot, size 43

Asked by: Mrbork
Based on customer feedback, Rossignol and Salomon footwear run true to size in both length and width. You may experience something different however.

I noticed the spec states that the zipper protects laces from snow. Are there laces under the zipper? 

Asked by: puppa
Yes, the laces are under the zippered cuff.
