Let's not forget Cripi!
Crispi also makes a full line of Tele Boots and are supposed to be in between Scarpa and Garmont as far as fit. I am purchasing a pair to replace my T2's for this season. I have tried on all of them and tested out Garmont and Scarpa. I am going with Crispi because it is the highiest boot (XR), a bit wider than Scarpa, but not as wide as Garmont. I like a high Tele Boots cause my shins hurt after a full day of hard turns on the T2's. It really a matter of how your foot is and how you ride. I would hold off and demo all the pairs before you shell out oodles of cash.
And lastly, take whatever they tell you at the store with heavy dose of your own perspective. Most people that work outdoor retail, in my opinion, seem to think they are uber hardcore and better at the sports they do because they work retail 5 days a week and have nice shit when they do get out. My experience in talking to many different clerks is that they will try to sell you and don't really care what you want as much as what they want you to have.
Case in point: When I bought my first setup I had been Alpining since I was 5 and XC's Backcountry all through my teens. They told me a four buckle boot wouldn't be comfortable for hiking and fatties were only for extreme backcountry people. I found 4 buckle boots hike just fine, are more comfortable skiing, and what everyone with a few seasons rides (except some old schoolers who stick to leather, and props to them) Fatties are not just for Heli skiing, and anyone living out west will appreciate 90+ underfoot. They said the World Pistes were the best all around ski, but since I bought my prophets, I only rock the world Pistes when it is spring groomer drinking time. In POW and 85% of the skiing conditions my prophets are the ticket. What ended up happening is I grew past my 1000 dollar setup in less than a season. And great for the clerks cause I had to buy new shit next season. What they should have done is given me the benifit of the doubt, seriously asked me what my experience was, and told me under their breath were they would spend there money. Instead the sold me on the same package every other smuck getting into the sport that season was sold. I say try everything and then buy and don't listen to some dude who thinks he's a pro because he sells outdoor gear and is still just a weekend warrior. Hell, the best advice comes from the dude clipping tickets and firing shit up 5 out 7 days fueled on ramen and mac and chesse. That dude will tell you what the best shit is and probably treat you with more respect than the average outdoor clerk.
