Given the ease and effectiveness of its bake-and-buckle shell-molding, Salomon can make the X Pro a little out-of-the-box snugger than others in the wide-fit class. So even at the 90-flex level, it offers the quickness and command of a tighter-fitting, more expensive boot. Too snug? Heat it up and buckle it on for a custom fit—it’s a quick process. Testers just liked the way the X Pro looks too. McCarthy: “Has the feel of a more expensive, higher-performing boot. And bonus points for its sleek, aerodynamic design.”
