I mean, I don't have any experience with these ski's but in general there is a time and place for Decathlon gear. There are many things that I would buy from there and many things I would not. Their products have a good bang for buck ratio but are cheap as fuck, so also very so-so in the bang department.
You buy socks, a spare base layer, hiking gloves, a space blanket or running shorts at decathlon. Stuff where you can easily get away with buying cheap crap.
Never in my life would I buy anything there that is more than 100 euros. Only a dweeb would spend 600 euros on something that makes you wish you had gone for the 900 euros equivalent from a real brand would have made you extatic.
I'd totally go for the 15 euros socks vs 40 euros socks though. Get my drift?
Lets get philosophical about this. You work for money right? That means you sell time of your life to your boss/company? Imagine selling a whole week of your precious life for something that looked good on paper but lacks in the performance department, while you could have sold a whole week and a half of your life for something that makes you shout "yeeeew". You wasted that week of your life and are going to go for the real deal afterwards anyway, effectively making it cost two and a half weeks of your life instead of one and a half. If you're considering buying something in the price category where its going to sting no matter what, just fucking go for what your heart wants instead of cheaping out and cutting corners.
