It’s All Downhill from Here in These Alpine Touring Boots


There are very few instances in which the expression, "it's all downhill from here," can be interpreted in a positive light — but skiing is certainly one of them. Drifting down a backcountry trail blanketed in pillow-soft powder is an experience in pure, unadulterated pleasure — unless your gear gives out at the top, in which case it really is all downhill from there, and not in the fun way. That's where the Salomon Shift Pro 130 Alpine Touring Boot comes in handy. This ski boot is as versatile as the binding it was named after, as stable as a backcountry boot can be and as adaptable as an all-day, all-terrain boot should be. Find out what makes the Salomon Shift Pro 130 Alpine Touring Boot so unique below.

Stiff Competition: At a true 130 flex, the Shift Pro 130 Alpine Touring Boot is the stiffest backcountry ski boot available from Salomon. Not only that, at just 1700g it's one of the brand's lightest options, making it a great option for both backcountry and resort terrain.


Comfort At Last: The Shift Pro 130 Alpine Touring Boot is built with a 100mm last, ensuring it will fit most skiers while remaining highly customizable. A Custom Shell provides heat-molded comfort to boot, while My Custom Fit 3D Seamless Race liners offer the right amount of flex while in walk mode.


Fast Feedback: Coreframe inserts in each boot improve realtime terrain feedback and boost power transmission, giving you more control over each carve. Meanwhile, the boots feature a secure, low-profile SureLock walk mode as well as a GripWalk sole that's compatible with tech, AT and Shift MNC bindings.
