Salomon invited a crew from the How It's Made TV Show into the Annecy Design Center for an up close look at the creation process of an alpine ski boot. Hear from developers, product managers and engineers to see how an initial idea becomes a prototype ski boot that gets tested in our laboratory and by Salomon athletes in the harshest of winter conditions. Only after months (often years) of testing and refining, is the boot ready to be sent to your local ski retail shop. Step inside Salomon headquarters and watch the entire process unfold below.
