The Ruler has come a long way
I had some Ruler's way back in the day, like one of the first years they made them- didn't like 'em, even for back then. Today it is an entirely different boot good enough for a seasoned rider and perfect for the entry-level to intermediate rider learning new tricks everyday. Is it the best boot out there? No. Is it laden with high end features? No. But it's sicker than your average (RIP biggie smalls)boot at this price. Really light- size 10.5 weighed 2.10 lbs. on a digital scale. They're super comfortable and easy to get on and off. Run absolutely true to size. Dishwashers, students and couch surfers, this is your boot.
