Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Salomon X-wave10 or Nordica Speedmachine 14?

I've recently bought some new skis (Salomon equipe 3v race) Very Happy

I'm planning on buying some ski boots to use with these skis to start some slalom racing but i also want the boots to be comfortable to use for eight hours each day when i go on holiday.

I'm torn between the salomon X-wave 10 boots and the Nordica Speedmachine 14. Really I would like the Speedmachines for their response but I am concerned that they will be too uncomfortable.

Has anyone tried these boots that would be able to tell me how they are for racing but also for comfort when I go on holiday?

the ones that fit your feet are the best, both boots are fairly similar in performance, just the shape is different, a good bootfitter should be able to suggest which is best for your foot shape

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I agree, although I once got a real bollocking off a snowHead for saying so. Confused
