Salomon has done it. They’ve designed a boot that blends the best characteristics of traditional laces with the benefits of BOA: the Dialogue Lace SJ BOA.
To sum up in one sentence, the Dialogue is simply perfect right out of the box. Why such a bold claim? Well, a lot of boots on the market take days—or even weeks—to truly break in and get to a point where they feel sculpted to your feet. But the Dialogue isn’t like a lot of boots. It’s gold the first time you put it on, and the comfort is unparalleled.
Allow me to expand. See, I’m the guy who’s been rocking the same pair of Nike boots (yes, Nike) since 2016. I loved them so much, I simply refused to give another pair a try. Knowing this, the good folks at Salomon were sympathetic to my stubbornness, though demanded that I replace the old dogs. They insisted I try the Dialogue and assured me it would change the game.
I was reluctant to believe such claims, as was I in denial that I actually needed a new pair for boots, but I gave in and gave these a try. And wow! The comfort, fit and performance made me a believer. Try and pair and see for yourself. – Jeff Baker
