This is the third pair of snowboard boots i have purchased. I had purchased vans last year and decided to go with burton this year because i bought a new burton board. I thought the vans were comfy but these boots beat them in comfort by far. I would definitely recommend these they felt awesome the first time i wore them. Normally my feet have to adjust and mold into a boot but not these. They were so comfy..love them...they seemed to run a half size small..i normally wear a 7 and had to get a 7 1/2. Worth the money!
