70/30 frontside, backside. Super, extra comfy boot. Never worn a boot that fits this well. A little flexy, top of foot buckle may come undone when heavily flexed. Much lighter than an alpine boot of comparable stiffness. Walk feature seems well designed. Cool overlap design - easy entry exit.

I can crank these things down and they are almost as tight as my pure downhill boots. However, I find them lacking on the uphill. Further, they're old tech - newer boots are significantly lighter, the shells more closely match foot size (this boot can be big shell / lots of liner deal) and a lot of them have decent pockets to hold your heel while the boots are loose and you skin. Which is my main complaint about these. They fail on the uphill in terms of weight, flex, movement range, and in my case no heel pocket, so the blisters are intense. However, I will keep them for when I use my touring setup at the resorts, which is one or 2 times a year.

Great boot but a bit tight. I am a solid US10 D. and the 27.5 was real tight.
I know all about how a boots liner will "pack out" but my toe/s were curling over in this boot.
Note: I have been skiing a 27.5 for the past Thirty years.
All an all this boot felt nice and stiff for the "Down" but also light for the "Up".

Guess I just failed to read the description carefully, but I was looking for downhill ski boots and these are not. Required to give a rating for the product, but obviously I have no experience with them.

The Shaman is a solid choice for a freeride oriented back country skier. It is light enough to get the job done on the skin but still has a nice tall cuff and stiff enough construction to drive large skis on the way down. Tech binding compatibility and quality Garmont construction.
Alpine touring boots are designed to be used with compatible alpine touring DIN-releasable AT bindings only. Alpine touring boot soles do not fit most downhill bindings and/or could interfere with release mechanisms.

The Garmont Shogun AT Ski Boots would not be compatible with Alpine (Downhill) bindings. The sole would alow the binding to release properly which could result in an injury. In order for an AT boot to be compatible with Alpine Binding it would need a sole like what is on the Garmont Endorphin AT Ski Boots (Item #3538W).
