Rome Stomp Boot Review

Review:

The Rome Stomp boot is a great entry level boot that features a single reel BOA system.  I wasn’t too sure what to expect out of these boots.  With my numerous feet issues over the years, I tend to need a boot with a fair amount of shock absorption and cushion.  Entry level boots normally do not cut it for me, unfortunately.  I’ve been really pleased with the comfort of the Stomp boot.  The Stomp has plenty of Rome’s boot technology to aid in comfort and overall function.  I like my boots to fit fairly loose so heel lift is often an issue for me.  The Stomp boot features Skate Cuff 3D, a three-dimensional heel pocket that keeps your heel locked in.  The Skate Cuff 3D combined with the heat-moldable liner really made form a nice fit on these boots.  The Rome Stomp boots also have Rad FoamBed for added comfort, support and impact protection.  The foam beds have Aegis Microbe Sheild to prevent stinkage.  The Stomp has primarily a rubber outsole, depending on how much hiking you do, this can be a great benefit as it will hold up well.  The two-part outsole keeps the boot light and gives it good flex where you need it most.  Rome gives it a 5 on their flex rating, I found it to be solid in all aspects of the mountain.  They have a decent amount of EVA foam in the footbed to provide impact protection off jumps, drops, etc.  My only complaint with these boots is they are a bit bulky and on the heavier side.

Summary:

If you’re looking for a boot with mellow flex and high comfort, look into the Rome Stomp Boot.  It has a great price point for a BOA boot and has held up to a season’s worth of abuse.

Pros:

  • responsive
  • flex where you need it
  • durability/construction
  • comfort
  • cushioning
  • style

Cons:

  • a little bulky
  • heavy
Style: (4.5 / 5)
