Salomon Men's Performa 4.0 Ski Boot:
When you're learning to ski--or simply taking it easy, you need comfort to appreciate the performance. Salomon's Performa 4.0 is an ideal solution for beginners, intermediates and recreational skiers seeking a fit that won't distract them while carving. It features Salomon's Comfort last, a design that offers more space along sensitive areas on your foot (those typical hot spots) so you can ski longer than you could in closer-fitting, traditional boot designs. Some ski boot manufacturers tout comfort options with flimsy flex, but the Performa 4.0 does it right with a Sensifit 2D cuff that extends the wide forefoot fit into the upper shell for extra step-in convenience. The flex rating is a moderate 55, so you have excellent stiffness for familiar black diamond runs and plenty of comfort for cruising blue runs all day long.
