I've skied in these boots 10 times and 135,000 vertical feet now. I ski blues with some reds and blacks.
They are true to size--once they pack in:
The first day, they were so tight, I almost cried on the ski lift. By the 2nd day, they were better. I simply wore them on the loosest setting and tightened up each day as comfort allowed. Now they have packed in to the point that I have the foot buckles on the tightest setting and I realise I got a size too big: I wear a 5.5 women's shoe and the 23.0 boots are equivalent to a 6.0. Thus, they are true to size.
They are narrow--which is great for the blue/red skier:
I have narrow feet. Rental ski boots are so wide that I can do sign language with my toes. In Ski Boot Land, narrow fit seems to be reserved for the super stiff boots of expert skiers. While I can tackle a black diamond, I am not an expert... yet. These boots are a happy medium. Upon first try-on, these actually fit tighter than another boot that was a half-size smaller. That boot was a looser 60flex compared to this 75, and remember, I almost cried in pain the first day I actually skied in these. After packing in, they performed great. The narrower fit affords better control on turns, even on moguls on in trees.
Not toasty warm: In full disclosure, my feet are always cold (because they are feet!) I prefer to ski with less sock because that gives me better control. A foot warmer atop the toes kept these cozy enough. While I appreciate the space I have for a 2nd sock and/or a toe warmer (because I got these 0.5 size too big,) I still would get my true shoe size.
The loop on the tongue makes them easy to carry. They are easy to get on too. Because they are fairly stiff, they are not easy to walk in, even when unbuckled. (However, I accidentally skied a steep blue with them unbuckled and didn't blow out a knee, which is a small miracle). The buckles are all metal and sturdy. The translucent plastic part is scratched up from some falls, but the construction of the overall boot seems to be solid.

    Comments about Salomon Idol 75 Ski Boots - Women's 2013:

    They were a liiiiiittle tight when they showed up - I made some adjustments to the buckles and flex and they felt a little better, but the tongue piece was making a pressure point on top of my foot that would've likely hurt if I'd skied like that all day - but I added an orthodic insert to give me better arch support and then the tongue wasn't pressing on the top of my foot anymore. Day one, the boots were still a little tight and needed to be worn loose - by midday, I needed to tighten them up because I was slipping around - on day two, they were PERFECT! Couldn't be happier.

      Comments about Salomon Idol 75 Ski Boots - Women's 2013:

      I am a beginner skier, and when taking ski lessons with rental boots I almost did not give skiing a chance. I have large calves and rental boots would compress my legs so badly that I would get foot cramps. This significantly decreased the fun of skiing- thankfully I found these amazing boots on Evo. I love salomons (as shoes) and these boots do not disappoint. My feet stayed very warm and comfortable, and absolutely no foot cramping. Not only are they amazing boots, but Evo had a great price as well.

                I hadn't intended to get new boots this season and scrambled to get some that I could afford and that would arrive quickly. I tried on a few Salomon's at stores and so I was pretty sure that these would fit.

                They are the most comfortable and the warmest boot I have ever used. My ankle is solidly in place. For using a new boot that I hadn't expected to buy, this was a great purchase. Thanks Evo for having it at such a nice price. I skiied twice in them and I can't wait to get back out there.

                    I really did't want to buy my first ski boots online but decided to take a chance, and it was worth it! I always couldn't wait to take rental boots off but in these I can ski all day long! I have worn them only twice. The boots are very comfortable and they don't bruise my legs like rental boots. I'm very happy with the purchase so far!

                    I was initially wary to order ski boots on-line without trying them on but as my previous boots were Salomon, I felt confident to order the Idol 75's as they were the same manufacturer. Straight out of the box, these boots have been comfortable! Break-in period is minimum as Salomon makes a quality product. I'm an intermediate skier and the fit, flex and rigidness is perfect on these!

                          These boots look great, and are very comfortable! They have a nice snug fit! Can't wait to go skiing this winter. These were bought as a second pair to stay up at our condo.

                                  Average size skier in all respects but this boot was really tight from the ankle up. Otherwise a great boot

                                  I've skied in these boots 10 times and 135,000 vertical feet now. I ski blues with some reds and blacks.
                                  They are true to size--once they pack in:
                                  The first day, they were so tight, I almost cried on the ski lift. By the 2nd day, they were better. I simply wore them on the loosest setting and tightened up each day as comfort allowed. Now they have packed in to the point that I have the foot buckles on the tightest setting and I realise I got a size too big: I wear a 5.5 women's shoe and the 23.0 boots are equivalent to a 6.0. Thus, they are true to size.
                                  They are narrow--which is great for the blue/red skier:
                                  I have narrow feet. Rental ski boots are so wide that I can do sign language with my toes. In Ski Boot Land, narrow fit seems to be reserved for the super stiff boots of expert skiers. While I can tackle a black diamond, I am not an expert... yet. These boots are a happy medium. Upon first try-on, these actually fit tighter than another boot that was a half-size smaller. That boot was a looser 60flex compared to this 75, and remember, I almost cried in pain the first day I actually skied in these. After packing in, they performed great. The narrower fit affords better control on turns, even on moguls on in trees.
                                  Not toasty warm: In full disclosure, my feet are always cold (because they are feet!) I prefer to ski with less sock because that gives me better control. A foot warmer atop the toes kept these cozy enough. While I appreciate the space I have for a 2nd sock and/or a toe warmer (because I got these 0.5 size too big,) I still would get my true shoe size.
                                  The loop on the tongue makes them easy to carry. They are easy to get on too. Because they are fairly stiff, they are not easy to walk in, even when unbuckled. (However, I accidentally skied a steep blue with them unbuckled and didn't blow out a knee, which is a small miracle). The buckles are all metal and sturdy. The translucent plastic part is scratched up from some falls, but the construction of the overall boot seems to be solid.

                                    Bought these boots for my wife. We ski in Italian Alps where it wasn't cold, so the boots were warm and comnfortable.
