I rode these boots this season and loved them. I normally wear a 10.5-11 and ordered a 10 which proved to be a perfect. I was too lazy to take them to get heat molded but it just took a weekend of riding for my foot to heat up the liner to conform to my foot. Super lightweight yet really durable. I had 60+ days and the boots still look fairly new. The STI foam is pretty cushioned when you dont stomp a landing. The flex was a good fit for riding little bit of park and steep pow.
