    Salomon Shift Pro 130 boot

    Any feedback on the new boot ? Seems there are very few actual usage reviews out there on this new boot and looks to be a an interesting competitors to Atomic / Lange boots.

    Also would be great if anyone knew about binding compatibility for their Gripwalk soles. Want to try to use these on an older Atomic Tracker 16 WTR binding , they are on my ON3P Billy Goat Tour and have heard both yes and no from reputable shops

    It's much improved from the QST, feels quite stiff, walk mode is very smooth but ROM is still not great. Fits more like a 102 than a 100.

    GripWalk hadn't been invented when that binding was made, but the current Amer compatibility chart says GripWalk soles and WTR bindings = good to go (this wasn't always the case).

    I tried these on and own the QST Pro. I feel like these have a lot more volume in the instep and somewhat more volume in the toebox area. Heel is still gaping wide as usual.

    Thanks for the feedback and more reason why trying on boots is so critical. I usually roll with a LV boot and 97 last , and trying these on, they did of course feel wider , but not much slippage in heel and for me, not like a 102

    yeah, sounds right. i was told there's a big difference between the version people tried on last season versus the ones that are in shops now. excited to slip on a pair.
    now a complete tool

    Feels roomier than the QST Pro to me, even though all the "pro" boots are supposed to be the same 100mm last. thejongiest has it right, IMO - taller over the instep and toebox.
