I gave them a fair shot
Cons: they run just small enough to leave me with tingly toes 5 hours after leaving the slopes. I hoped they'd break in a bit after riding in them a few times, but I'm still getting nice-sized bruises on my shins each time. The liners aren't very cushy, and the boot is overall fairly uncomfortable.
Pros: the lacing system is quick, and STAYS where I put it. It's a pretty light boot, and cute (I bought the black/blue).
They will be going back to dogfunk :(
