So far so good.
I love the way these boots feel, they didn't seem too small, I got a 7.5 which is what I normally wear, and they feel great. No tingly toes. And I haven't had any issues with the laces. As far as breaking them in, you can stick the liners in your oven (at a low temp) and then put them on and they will fit better. Good beginner-intermediate boot.
try them yourself
i love these boots (size 7, blk/blu: im usually size 7.5 in regular shoes)
theyre super easy to get in and out of and theyre so adjustable that you can fit the boots however you want. i haven't had any problems with "tingly toes" or "wet socks" so all i can do is hit the slopes and have fun in these. i love love love how my heels never slip up/out of these and i think theyre super comfy; just need 2-3 rides to break them in a bit. theyre super cheap, so give them a try.
Dont be fooled by their good look, these boots suck. They run really small, take forever to break in and leave a lot of bruises in the meantime, After 2 months the inner string was frayed and damaged, and after 2 months the shell fell apart where i need a roll of duct tape or brand new boots. The strings fray easily, the stiching in the boot came undone, and a peice of plastic snapped off causing me to not be able to tightenmy boot.
Do not get these boots unless you like wasting money.
poor, even for the price
I got these boots for my wife, and she had all the same problems as I had with the Burton Moto. They boots felt good at first but after very little wear the heel lift grew to an extreme. Next, the waterproofing is horrible. The liners and her socks got completely soaked. The only good thing was that dogfunk has an awesome return policy that they actually honor! We both ended up getting the Nike Zoom force1's and they're WAY better.
Much better (for me) than the higher-end expensive boots
Got these after a horrible experience with the more expensive, and theoretically better high-end Burton Sapphire boot.
Just wearing them in the house they were a million times better. They are low-profile, so it doesn't feel like you are a wearing a honker of a boot. They feel more like a very large sneaker.The flex is forgiving--not stiff like the Sapphire, and the interior is soft. Arch support could use some work, but the tongue and top of the boot don't press down harshly on the top of the foot. While I did experience some discomfort and numbness, that has to do with tying the boots and cranking the bindings too tight. There is room for toe warmers in these, too. I typically wear anywhere from a size 7 to 8 in women's shoes, so I went with a size 8 and I'm happy with that.
I was skeptical about the lacing system, but after using it I can say that I have never been able to actually lace up regular style lace-up boots as tight and secularly as using this speed-zone system. I was worried that tugging on the strings might break them, but that hasn't happened (yet). I got the boots as tight as I wanted them, even too tight. But the good thing is, if one part is too tight, like the lower zone/top of foot (where my feet tend to lose circulation and grow numb when too tight) you can loosen that while keeping the ankle and shin area tight. I like that customization. The speed zone on the inner liner is great, too.
All around, for less money than the higher end boots Burton offers, I feel like this offers comparable performance. No wonder it's their best seller. And the green pattern is super cute! :)
I returned these boots after 20 days of riding in them. They made my feet go numb every time I wore them. When I hooked my snow pants to the laces so they didn't ride up it made the lacing loose. I would much rather lace my boots up and take 30 extra seconds then EVER wear these boots again. I am a Burton boot loooover! I had worn the Sapphire for the last 4 seasons and loove them. Thought I would try out this new lacing tech... In my opinion traditional lacing is the way to go! It just seemed like these boots were never ever ever going to break in even with heat molding.
Present for our daughter
We bought these boots for our daughter for Christmas. Living in California, we have ALOT of snow in Lake Tahoe. She LOVES them, they are very comfortable and she is very excited she received them.
The boots were delivered to our house so quickly. I will definitely buy more products from your company.
Thank you so very much.
Pleasant Hill, California
Got a pair of these for a friend who has been having trouble finding the right pair of soft boots. Her feet felt great (which is why this product gets two stars and not one), however, on her second run down the mountain, a shoelace snapped out of its binding and we had to tie it around the boot just so that she could get down the slope without twisting her ankle. My 3-yr old Salomon boots = 1, overpriced Burton = 0. Will never buy Burton stuff again.
Burton Mint Boots
These boots are great! I bought them years ago for myself and they are still in mint condition! You should definately buy these because they are for beginners or advanced boarders!
Can you order lacing for boots---new puppy...
Can you order lacing for boots---new puppy had fun chewing
yes you can, check out this link; http://www.backcountry.com/burton-speed-zone-lace-kit-1-pair This will come with two laces and the re-lace tool.
I gave them a fair shot
Cons: they run just small enough to leave me with tingly toes 5 hours after leaving the slopes. I hoped they'd break in a bit after riding in them a few times, but I'm still getting nice-sized bruises on my shins each time. The liners aren't very cushy, and the boot is overall fairly uncomfortable.
Pros: the lacing system is quick, and STAYS where I put it. It's a pretty light boot, and cute (I bought the black/blue).
They will be going back to dogfunk :(
Does anyone know where to get replacement...
