These boots are the $#*%! Ive had problems finding boots that dont give me heel lift since i have a narrow heel and I have had no problems with these. The flex is perfect for all mountain freestyle, but then a gain I do like a bit of a stiffer boot in general. I came from the 32 lashed and they are lighter, but I can say with confidence that these boots crap on the lashed. not that the lashed is a bad boot, just that it was a little to soft for me. The liner is amazing and just a super comfortable boot all around. The thing that really stood out to me was the sleakness of the boot. They did a really good job cutting excess material all around the boot, hence the shrinkage technology that burton reps. Call yourself chris brown because you will be slappin the mountain silly in these boots!
