I love these boots. I got them this season after I wore my Burton Mint's to the ground. I noticed with other boots my feet would always cramp up along the outer sides of my feet. These boots are cushy and give my feet enough room so they don't cramp up. Like the other review, I did notice they were noticeably stiffer than they seem to be in the description, but as I wore them and broke them in, they got a lot softer. Great all-mountain boot... I love them, I will never go back to Burton!!
