Classic style. Comfortable. Awesome boots.
I only had these boots a couple of weeks but I really like them when they are adjusted properly, the first few times i toke them out I over tightened them and they started hurting a little but a few quick adjustment and I was all good, they seemed a little small when i first put them on but a few hours went by and they were already feeling better. to add they are very durable and they looks great
Not too shabby
The boots were super-comfy and supportive in all the right spots. The interior cinch chord worked really well at creating a snug-fit. However, the clasp was a bit bulky and would dig into my ankle at times.
After the initial break in of the boots, they are just as comfortable as my skate shoes. the product description is true to it's word. these boots are great. the laces are super durrable. I wore the boots for 4 days straight with NO problems at all. very pleased with my purchase!
EST-optimized mid sole
It just says that est optimized midsole brings you closer to your board...this is true but only half of the benefit. The whole concept is suppose to make a snowboard boot feel more like a skate shoe. Burton achieves this by eliminating the forward ramp that most boots have. This forward ramp is essential for beginners or people going fast and doing aggressive turns because it forces you into the 'athletic position.' The flattened midsole allows you to rest more weight on your heels and get a better feel throughout the foot...pretty cool! Some tech that isn't for everyone but should stick around for years to come.
J. Jones and EST
So why aren't snowboard boots as comfy as a pair of skate shoes? J. Jones didn't but luckily Burton cares about his opinion. Thus was born EST optimized midsoles! This essentially is the elimination of forward ramp in the boot so instead of being forced to rest your weight on the balls of your feet and being in the 'athletic' position, you can stand flat footed and get a better feel for your board under your feet. Recommended for the advanced freestyler, not a beginner.
What's in a name?
Pro-model boots aren't something you come across often in the snowboard game. Pro model skate shoes are really what separates the skaters between uber-pros and man-ams. What did Tyra do so differently then Kelsey Martinovich? Why should we care who's name is attached to a pro-model anything? Normally, yes I agree, but in this case, it's Jeremy Jones we're talking about, the kid deserves a boot.
As far as the boot goes, B3 gel EST midsole keeps it comfy and the profile is low, almost skate shoe like. You can ride and walk around in them all day without the pressure you get from lesser boots, heck, you can even run these all season without them mushing out. Even at 30 days, most boots mush out way too much. Burton done did good on this one.
Research 1:1 lasting and ask yourself why aren't ALL boot brands doing this?
Reduced overall footprint makes you less of a clown-shoed loser.
Lightweight- size 10 weighed 2.15 lbs (per boot).
Style- for days.
Response- all day.
What's in a name?
What does it mean to have a pro-model anything? one thing; you're good at what you do. I say it depends on what that thing is. To have a pro-model board is still cool, but if everyone has one, then...
Like skateboarding for example, I think it's the shoe and not the board which separates the Tyra's from the Kelsey Martinovich's. But anyway, Jeremy has a boot, one of the few that do and if you know and appreciate his riding style, you will know the product has to be durable, good for a 50+ day season and of course, feeel goooood. Check, check and check
These boots are light (2.15 lbs per boot, size 10) and comfortable with it's B3-cushioned EST midsole, virtually dampening all chatter that would've been.Fit runs very true to size 1:1 lasting is something you would assume all brands would do but for some reason, they don't. what it means is if you order a size 10 boot, you get a size 10 shell with a size 10 liner, not a 9.5 liner. This results in no gaps, meaning no condensation, meaning no cold toes. It's great.
