One year later
FYI - for anyone that has these boots - I have had mine for a year (about 60 days on them - including touring). I have always had a problem with my feet going numb when my bindings are tight. If I'm just walking around, they're fine - obviously this is a problem. I finally figured out that it was the soles. They don't offer enough support - so when the bindings are tight, my foot was flattened out. I bought some super feet and took out the Burton soles. It's like a whole new boot. The pain and foot cramping is gone and it stopped my heel slipping issues too. I love these boots - they're awesome. But I would highly recommend switching out the soles.
