Not that bad
I've been riding the Ride LX for 2 seasons (now on my third), and they are really not that bad. Not the best, but they're great for beginners. They are somewhat heavy, but they are durable and I've never had any trouble with them. I wear boot sizes 10-10.5 and I bought the Large, whenever I strap in, the ratchet tightens almost all the way, so I wish I had gone with Mediums.
