apparently the people that designed these pieces of s*** don't wear snowboard boots when they snowboard. Wait, they probably don't snowboard... they short ski. lame product, bad design, horrible fit.
they suck. just buy soccer shinguards and cut the bottoms off. these things dont come close to fitting around my leg and i got the L/XL.
