I got these at the beginning of this season and over the course of the season have fallen in love with them. Admittedly I had some problems getting my boot in them at first, but I think it was partially due to me trying to tigthen the bindings as much as they would go because that's what I did with my old bindings. But after a while I learned the great thing about Flows is you dont have to make them so tight, they still provide better support even when looser. Once I realized that I had a much easier time getting my boots in. They just took some breaking in and me learning how tight they had to go. In the past I've always had Burton Escapades and I always got cramps on the sides of my feet, especially my front foot. All season I never once had a foot cramp with the Flows. I love them and I'll never go back to traditional bindings.
