Product Info

A softer version of the boot that started it all, the Salomon SPK 85 Ski Boots provide comfort to dedicated park skiers all day, every day. With an 85 flex, a 104 last, and park specific technology, you’ll have every advantage necessary to get some shots this season.

Product Details

Materials

Mono material PP upper cuff and lower shell: Polypropylene is a softer and lighter material than PU, with high UVA resistance

Advanced Shell Technology is a new generation for low profile ski boots based on a Second Skin shell, Second Skin last, Spaceframe shell profile and dynamic Energizer for improved fit and performance.

Liner

Thermic Fit Liner made from anatomical foam and loop on the tongue for easy on/off

Additional Features

2 micro Alu oversized buckles allow perfect pressure distribution and powerful heel lock allowing the foot to drive the boot and not be trapped inside.

Heel cushioning system provides shock absorption when landing jumps.

Flex and Fit

An 85 flex and 104mm last make this boot a park skiers dream. Wide enough in the forefoot to feel comfortable and stable on rails, but just stiff enough to give lighter skiers enough power and pop off the big line.

Fantastic boot! Easy to get in and out of with the booty design and slick pad entry on calf. Only a 2 buckle boot which makes it way less of a hassle but the booty design and power strap make you stable and locked in to your boot but still with a good amount of flex. Great shock absorption if you are to knuckle a jump and great stability on rails. Buy this boot, best boot for the money, wont be disappointed gaurenteed. The only problem is that you need to buy this 1 size bigger. I already had Salomon boots in a 27.5 so I knew what to order but I wear a 8.5 sneaker but needed a 27.5 instead of a 26.5. Make sure you know you're show size and better be big than small

      This is just a great ski boot! I used them going down the hill to all over the park! My feet stayed warm all day with just regular socks. The only bad thing that I could think of was that they were a little tight at first, but with a little adjusting, they felt better.

            I really wanted the Salomon Quest 80 but it was not in the budget. But on closer inspection, this is the same boot without the walk mode switch on the back. In my opinion it was worth saving almost $100 to get these boots instead. If you have a narrow heel but wide forefront on the foot, also if you are even a little bow-legged, these boots fit perfect.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Used customer service via the telephone. They are very knowledgeable and will steer you in the right direction. No upselling involved, just honest product analysis. Product arrived in perfect condition.

              Comments about Salomon SPK 85 Ski Boots 2012:

              The boots are mostly awesome... They seem to flex where I want them too and hold where I want them too. There is a pretty bad pressure point on the top of my feet right at the biggest highest up knuckle. I've felt inside the boot and the hard plastic tongue piece protrudes a little there that doesn't seem necessary and would fit a lot better if it was more flush. I've got really stout feet, about 110 at the widest and that's further down than the boot gives so there's a little numbness after a few hours of hard riding but I haven't found a ski boot that doesn't make my feet numb after a few hours. Aside from fit on my weird feet, they're great. Lightweight, warm, stylish.

                This boot is amazing ! It has just the right amount of flex. Not to much where you couldn't ride with it all mt. But enough to use in park too. Has a lot of padding for your calf and shins which is a plus! Looks great good boot if you can't spend 250-300 on full tilts or other boots this is a good boot for you. Really like the two buckle system and keeps your feet snug and warm.

                          I use the product mainly for off-piste freeskiing and I love them. Great price for my student budget and overall a great boot. Only complaint would be a little pressure point where the two folds of plastic overlap, might just annoy me because of my weird shaped feet though. Awesome boot, would buy them again for the price!

                            Great Price! Great Feel! And the ladies love 'em. Paired these with some Dynastar 6th Sense SuperPipe skis with some Look Bindings and WOOOOOOO!!! *rick flair voice* These things are beasts! Forwards backwards, jumps, carving, circles to double blacks!! You pair these boots with the right ski and you will be golden!

                            PS - Did i mention that the snow bunnies love 'em?

                            great park boots very comfortable and really warm with a lot of padding but should be in a high flex

                            I am an intermediate skier, and a lesson instructor. These boots are comfortable and very warm, during my lessons and skiing. Also, very easy to walk in, a pro for a lesson instructor! At first, difficult to get your feet in and out, but after time is like slipping on a slipper!

                              I think these are the best youth freestyle boots on the market. Lightweight, comfortable and economical pricing. My athletes have been using a variation of the SPK for many years and the boots have never let us down.
