Great boots, but BOA is flimsy
By Triple8Sol Ranked #1483 - Boots January 12, 2009
These boots are DC's most expensive boot for this 08/09 season. Very stiff for freeriding. There is a red plastic insert on the tongue of the liner that I removed to make it a little less stiff until they're broken in. Used them 8x so far and not sure when I'll be ready to put those back in. Design is great, designed by Peter Saville. The memory foam alpha liner means you don't need to heat mold them. They fit to your feet each time you slip them on and don't pack out nearly as fast as other boots. Only drawback is that the boa system is still kind of flimsy. This is my first pair of BOA boots, and one of the side knobs broke off already. Luckily a local boardshop fixed it for me so I didn't have to ship them in and wait a week or two for waranty repair.
