Different than last years
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These were my 3rd pair of DC Judges. I had 2 of the previous year and now these. Overall the performance is good, the sole is strong for kicking in steps, stiff enough in the ankle without feeling like a ski boot or a skate shoe.
What I really don't like is the vented liner, (its snow, which melts to water!) and the change in fit. The old boots were narrower in the last. These feel sloppy side to side.
If you had the old judges, don't just order the same ol size. Try them on.
