Pro Year after year, this venerable Salomon design finishes at or near the top of its category. This year is no different. Salomon continually makes improvements to the Performa/Irony line, but its core personality remains intact: a balanced combination of comfort and performance that will please weekend warriors everywhere. The easy-in shell is graced with a solid geometry that promotes a balanced, neutral stance. Pads in the liner are strategically placed and shaped to conform to lots of different foot shapes. Buckle adjustments require no tools, and high-traction soles provide grip for easy walking. “Salomon sweats the small stuff, and it pays off,” said Sabanosh. “This boot is laterally strong and solid to the rear, yet nimble and easy to maneuver.” Con Easy forward flex bottoms out when steered hard or by a heavyweight.
