I had some issues with heel lift and ankle pain in my last (heavy) boots. These are super light and the hold on the heel is awesome. After some tweaking with my bindings they've resulted in a real nice ride. They are pretty stiff so if you're super into park they may not be the go, but I paired them with Burton Cartels (which are pretty flexy) and it's turned into a really nice combo. Very nice on the slopes, stiff but still very comfortable in the park. Very satisfied with these.
Cons: When walking the lace hooks tend to grab onto anything within reach, just make sure you pull your pants over them and you'll be sweet

This boot is on top of the traditional lace mountain. If you are a fan of traditional laces, but you want some serious improvements in tech, this is the place to look. With improvements like the Air Upper Articulating Cuff, New Super Grip Toe, and a sole that has two different style cushion patterns that allow for support on the outside and forgiving flex on the inside of your foot. This feature saves knees, and improves board control, it also helps keep you in your seat when your landing in the back seat.Overall i would recommend this boot to everyone for any type of riding, this boot is a six on the support-o-meter making it a great all around option.
My burton tribute boots are dead and i am looking for a little more support. Are the grails a good choice? I dont play in the park that much and mostly ride pow and groomers. Is the lace lock similiar to the old yellow lock (which i love b/c it always stays locked). Thanks!

I like the traditional lacing of the grail. Do you think the Grails will still work as an all mountain boot?

If you like a stiffer boot, I would check out the Ions. They are amazing and stiff. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-ion-snowboard-boot-mens or the ruler which is the same stiffness as the grail but not a park boot. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-ruler-snowboard-boot-mens

These are def the best boots I have rode. Plenty of support for all over the mtn but not too stiff. They are super plush, super warm, and my feet never cramped in them at all. They were everything I would expect with a name like the grails! I usually wear a 10 in boots but these packed out more than expected..prob should have went with 9.5's so keep that in mind...
Im debating between these and the rulers. I only ride about 10 days a year but these seem like they would last a while. Are these worth the extra$ 80 and why?

The Grails are super comfortable. Way worth the extra cash. The sole of the grail has an auto cant system built into it. This gives you the rider the best possible canting for your stance. The Grail also has the level 4 liner that now has dryride wicking properties. If you like speed lace then run the Ruler.

First day on them and they are great! I'm just an average Joe that works a 9 to 5 and rides almost once a week in the winter. These Grails are soooo comfy; they actually got more comfortable as the day grew longer. I was really whinny about my feet hurting before this. By the end of today with these new 2011 Grails, I couldn't even tell I had boots on. Good heel hold too, skinny ankles man. Cushing in the soles are great, I hit some really ruff, choppy, in the trees today and they handled perfectly. I was able to balance through all of it with no shock to feet or ankles. Landed all of 9 out of 10 jumps today and the cushioning in these boots are for real. They look great and even feel better. I was riding 32 prions before these, like the other fellow replied they do crap on 32. Also, I was wearing a 10 in 32 and bought these grails in a 10, they fit perfectly if not better. The boots seem very light in weight. Oh yeah, DogFunk is great. Excellent customer service, they are very knowledgeable and have quick service. DogFunk is where I bought my 2011 Grails. Also, I just bought a pair of bindings online like 1 hour ago and I bought them from DogFunk.com.

These boots are the $#*%! Ive had problems finding boots that dont give me heel lift since i have a narrow heel and I have had no problems with these. The flex is perfect for all mountain freestyle, but then a gain I do like a bit of a stiffer boot in general. I came from the 32 lashed and they are lighter, but I can say with confidence that these boots crap on the lashed. not that the lashed is a bad boot, just that it was a little to soft for me. The liner is amazing and just a super comfortable boot all around. The thing that really stood out to me was the sleakness of the boot. They did a really good job cutting excess material all around the boot, hence the shrinkage technology that burton reps. Call yourself chris brown because you will be slappin the mountain silly in these boots!

These are by far the cushiest boots money can buy. I've tried on or demo'd about 30-40 pairs of boots, so I can say this with confidence. I originally wanted something easier to lace, but I quickly got over the fact that these don't have a speed lacing system (BOA, etc). They fit beautifully, and hold the heel well. There are only two other boots available that are even close to comparable to these. The Thirty Two Lashed, and the Northwave Legend SL. For those of you who like a very soft boot, with very little support, you might like the Lashed better. The Legend has a speed lacing system which is nice, but don't have quite as much cush as the Grails do. I do recommend the Legend's, but they are damn near impossible to find in a local store since Northwave is a smaller company and ships all their boots over from Italy. I've already hit the slopes 3 times with my Grails and have no complaints. I get just enough support, yet a lot of comfort with this medium flex boot.

These things are some of the most comfortable boots I have ever worn in my life. They have a foam like sole on the inner lining which adds a super cushy comfy feel to the boots. They are traditional lacing which is good for getting your EXACT fit dialed down. About a 6/7 flex is perfect for the true all mountain rider looking for the best in comfort. Also, Burton finally swapped out their liner lace locking mechanism so its not that stupid yellow tab anymore. This new one is MUCH more user friendly and a bit more substancial as well. Doesn't look like it will break any time soon.
I wear a size 10 street shoe, 9.5 slipper, and 8.5 snowboard boot. These fit perfectly for me like snowboard boots do at an 8.5. I basically run 8.5 across the board (Burton, Ride, Thirty Two, Northwave)
