I never have, but I've never had a problem with my shirts staying tucked in.

I've known people who really like them. I would imagine that you might need them in your line of work, unlike a desk jockey like myself.

It was GK that said he got some... Which probably means he just lied and said he got some.

Those look nice

Can you compare the sizing to something like AE?

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Love them. I almost got the 90's for the $100 less however I will say, I'm very happy I didn't. I'm an intermediate skier. I don't go crazy but I push myself and my skis hard at times. If you are anymore more than a beginner I would suggest the 100's. They are stiffer and more supportive.

Super comfortable too. The one thing about ski boots is that if they are too stiff, you can always get them loosened a little. You can't go in the opposite direction so if you are looking at the 90's and you are an intermediate skier, you might find them too flexible for your ski type.

Did you try them on yet? If you can find a deal online go for it but I would highly suggest you try a couple pairs on first. Those QST's are 100mm wide for the last and are overall on the narrow side and snug across the top of the foot. Works for me but might be too tight for someone with a higher profile foot.

Thank you for the info.

I mainly ski blues and greens and am more into carving than speed.

Will definitely try them on before buying. A moderate premium at a ski shop to get the right fit is worth it.

Do you recommend getting boots custom-fitted? I've heard mixed feedback on this.

Most boots now have a custom foam sole/padding that will eventually fit itself to your foot. My personal opinion. Break them in and ski them for several days. Get 20-30 decent runs in and see how they feel.

Mine fit and felt great after the 2nd or 3rd day so I didn't need get the boot heated/custom molded.

Can't compare with AE but my go-to comfy boots are Justin ropers, which I have in a 10EE. These fit the exact same way and they say they fit true to size using the Brannock Device. It will take a few days to get them to fit properly like any other boot though. Just keep that in mind.

I slapped a double sole on mine and love them. I like the slim last (especially in a B width); it's a nice change from some of my clunkier AEs (like the MacNeils, which I also love).

Makes sense. I will take this route then. Thanks again!

No prob

Another thing to keep in mind... 90, 100, etc... is how stiff the boot is. A Salomon 100 is not the same as an Atomic 100. One might be stiffer than another.

The only thing that is constant among all ski boots are length and width.

Good to know, thanks

I didn't feel like making a thread for this random question, so just leaving it here:

How much less of a wedding gift would you give for a dry wedding?
