I just purchased these boots and they are really great. I ride mainly park but these can do it all. The 6 response rating is accurate but it feels a little stiffer. I recommend that you take these boots into your local board shop and have them set them on the heater and then put them on to have them form to your foot and break them in. The lacing system is also really neat. I'd recommend these boots to intermediate riders. A good boot for the right price!
