Salomon Men's SPK Kaos Ski Boots (Fall 07):
Freestyle pros perform on a different level--that's why they get sponsor boots that they don't have to wear except when they're doing what they do best. When you ride in the park or pipe, you're on your feet most of the day, that's why you need the extra padded spoiler, shin pad and 3D shock absorber in this SPK Kaos Ski Boot from Salomon. It has the same flex rating, strap, buckles and flex rivets as Salomon's SPK Pro Model, but the CF Sport liner has a feel that makes it worth wearing throughout the day. It's also designed with Salomon's FS (Freestyle) Spaceframe, a shell profile that's specifically built around feet that tend to rip pipes, parks and berms all day. Flip open the new Overshaped micro aluminum buckles and unwrap the generously wide 55-mm. adjustment strap and you'll find a CF Sport liner with a special Quicklace closure that helps your tweak the fit without excessive fiddling. The CF Sport liner fits close but has a little more padding than the CF Pro model on the SPK Pro. The faux fur lining feels plush but fits close enough that you can wear the SPK Kaos without socks. If you like a lot of air but you dread the hard landings, Salomon's SPK Kaos Ski Boot is exactly what you want to wear when you touch down.
