Nice boots, comfotable and BOA is fantastic
No leaking like others said (yet), boots a bit annoying to take off after but it fits well for me, memory foam soles are pretty sweet too. And the look sick!
DC Judge Boots
They Are decent boots for the price. I think there are better out there though.
DC Boa Judges: Nice but not stiff!
I have been using the 2008 DC Judge Boa boots for the last three seasons. Decided to upgrade and jumped right back to the 2012 Judges. The boots have definitely advanced, which include going much lighter in materials and weight. The down side is, that if you are looking for and need a nice stiff boot to keep you totally connected to your ride, these won't do it. I see them as a park boot now. I actually will stick with my old 2008s and maybe explore other manufacturers which bums me out.
This is my first pair of snowboard boots and I was a little worried about fit. I usually wear a 10 in most walking shoes ie Converse All Stars and a 10 in these fit perfectly. You have to make sure that you completely loosen the inside speedlace and you'll have no problem putting these on. There's two Boa adjustments: one for the top one for the bottom, which give a really good fit. I really like how the bottom Boa wires are protected by some boot material. Excellent price and product. Thanks Backcountry!
I've heard all these problems with leaking but i have never had a problem. I actually really like these boots. Love the BOA. No leaking and great support. I've had them a little over a year now and no problems at all. They keep my toes warm in the really cold winter.
Such good boots i have been riding in them sor a while now and they mould so well to your foot. The boa system is awsome aswell, can't go past them
They leaked water right from the start, I applied my own water proofing which lasted a few weeks. Also I have completely packed out the liner after only about 30 days of solid riding forcing me to cinch them down as tight as they will go to be able to get any kind of support.
If you like to ride hard all day multiple times a week, these boots are not for you.
The boa system has exceeded my expectations in both comfort and convenience. The boots look really cool and are just the right stiffness for an all-mountain rider like myself. A freestyle rider may want a softer boot. I had heard from a couple people that DC boots are true to size, but I still had to return them for a half size down after one weekend of pack out on a boarding trip. The only design flaw I see so far is that the liner laces are attached to the boot shell so it's a pain to take the liners out when they need to dry. Overall they're very comfortable and a great value at this price (currently listed at 40% off)
Poor customer service, poorly made boots
Bought these rode them 1 time and they leaked at the toes, returned them to dogFunk which was easy as it gets. I purchased those bc I had a pair of 2010 DC judge that were ridden less than 30 times, and those leaked too. To top it all off I call DC about my 2010's ,after waiting roughly 2 months and calling them 50 times I received a reply, was sorry about ur luck but here is a coupon for 50% off but it expires in June. Um well I'm calling about snowboard boots, so that does nothing to help me. I'm not a DC hater I own tons of clothes and shoes of theirs, i just can't believe how poorly they treat their customers. Don't make the same mistake I did
Love the boots
I've put about 200 days in these boots over the last 2 seasons! Only complaint is DC makes chunky boots. Fit well, double boa works great, looks sick!
BOA system wouldn't loosen
I was so excited when my new DC Judge boots arrived, they fit well and the boa system was so easy. Wore the boots for two days and I was really enjoying the fit and the boa system, but at the end of the second day the lower BOA cable on my left boot would not loosen all the way. My son had a good laugh as I threatened to cut if off my foot and struggled for 15 minutes to finally get it off my foot. I was most impressed with Dogfunk and how easy they made returning the boot and refunding my money. I will give BOA and maybe DC another try next season and I will definitely buy again from Dogfunk.
DC judge wth BD Contract crampon.
DC judge boots
Just upgraded recently from salamon snapsi boots
To DC judge 2012 if there is a better snowboad
Boot it must really be something special. Having decided on a dual boa system it quickly narrowed my options down. The dual boa system is quite frankly outstanding gone are the days of huffing and puffing laces only not for them to feel quite right. I started with the Ride insano although the reviews on the whole were very good it became quite clear that there was a ankle problem being
Highlighted by a number of reviews it baffles me how boots that hurt can merit a 5/5. The flex rating was reviewed as very stiff and the inner lace system had a massive locking clip that would surely hurt. Digging deeper left only one option the DC Judge I opted for the cami/ black option having struggled to get a pair locally I decided to look on line. There were reviews that stated u should size up with the DC judge. I decided to confirm my actual size in two local kit shops both coming up at uk 8 us 9 mondo 27 both shops recommended mondo 27.5 US 9.5. Checked my current boots and they were exactly the same size!!! When they arrive I had my doubts although my toes were not
Crushed they were touching, knowing full well the Alpha liner would mould I decided to give them a try - PERFECT FIT. I class myself as high end
Intermediate boarder and as such would recommend these Judges to any beginner inter and beyond. Love the three diff colour options they come in black cami/black white/blue, The dual boa system has to be used to be believed u can set ur boots in seconds to the perfect fit and adjust likewise, the tread is a light weight rubber combination I found them really stable and non slip ESP when stomp padding off lifts. Even standing up and pushing down on the boots the flex on the sole is outstanding and would Absorb any air. Down side if there is one and it's more a niggle than a problem - the power strap on the liner loops though a Velcro loop on the liner tonge and seem a bit fiddly, but if this helps with the over all fit of the boot / liner it's worth the niggle. I got mine end of season at $196 but would have paid much more knowing how good they are. Main plus dual boa
Lace system, 3d alpha liner, comfort easy adjusted fit rated at 7 stiffness I found it fully adjustable. Easy of fit removal. Light weight, very responsive
On both heel and toe side. I use burton P1 bindings and the reinforced toe on the judge grips the P1 toe cap Bril. Rating i knew DC Judges were good but not this good 100/100
Got these today, had the 2008 models they leaked DC warranty never answered the phone. I left a message and nothing. Ken Block should b ashamed of his company. Bought these from dogfunk BC of the return policy. Loved the old judge, love the new ones
A great Boot
I have had 3 pair of Judge boots over the last 6 years....I have loved them.
The boa system on both the lower portion and the upper makes it so you can fine tune each section of the boot.
With my newest pair....the sole material makes them super light weight with good cushioning.
I recommend this boot.
I've tried these boots on several times but haven't actually ridden in them, so let me just say that. I think the boa system is awesome and you're very much set on it being secure. These boots are soft in the soles and they are super light and low profile compared to many other boots. The reason why i didn't go with them is because no matter how tight i made the lower portion of the system, my ankle would still have room to slide out and move around. So I went with something else. Again, I never rode with them, but right from the get go it didn't feel good.
Why did DC stop making the Ladies' Judge?!...
Why did DC stop making the Ladies' Judge?! That was the best boot I ever had! I've got some K2s now and they suck. I also tried the DC Mora and hated those. I'm on the mountain almost every day and have not found a boot more comfortable than the DC Ladies' Judge plus they lasted me a full 2 seasons. Please DC, start making the Judge for Ladies again....we like comfy boots too!
DC Judge BOA
Got these boots the other day, and lets just say, I'm truely impressed. I had some thirtytwo boots before and i just could never get them to feel the same throughout the day of riding. I like the new ankle technology and the breathability. My foots doesn't move but it does not cut off circulation. That's what a snowboard boot is suppose to do. It was very responsive and I noticed I could control my spinning off jumps alot better aswell as the landings. 5 Stars to DC. I ride the 2008 DC XFB board right now, but the DC PLY is in the mail. It's gonna be a great winter. Cheers!
great boot, dual boa works very well! nice tight fight!
Awesome boot, never a problem with quality
I have the 2008 version of these boots and I have never worn a more comfortable, or warm boot. After 2 seasons in the boot, I've never had an issue with them. I am actually looking into buying these models for this season. I'll let you know how they are when the snow starts flying.
