Good entry-level boot

The Burton Moto is an entry level boot designed for the beginning rider. The first thing I should say about these boots is that they pack out fairly quickly; after about 8 days on the slopes, they were about a half size larger. By 10 days on the slopes, I was getting a bit of heel lift. The speedzone lacing is fast, but since this boot uses the speedzone express where there's only one pull cord, I found it somewhat difficult to adequately tighten the lower zone independently from the upper zone. I also found I had to tighten these boots after every few runs because the cord catch would loosen. These boots are very flexible which is good for a beginner or the park-rat. Unlike other reviewers, I found these boots very comfortable. There's only a single speedzone lacing pull on this boot, so you get a little bit less ability to control the tightening on different parts of the book. If you're a beginner, but you're relatively sure you'll be riding quite a bit, I would actually recommend spending a few more dollars to get a slightly higher end boot. These will work for the budget conscious rider though.
