Too Legit to Quit
I was able to take the 12/13 model out at the end of the season last year and I loved them. Fairly light (in comparison to previous models), comfy, and responsive. I had a pair of Cartels 5 years ago and the tall highbacks did not work for me. I love that the new Cartel highbacks are shorter. I love my Union Frankenbindings (Atlas baseplate and Contact Pro highback) but this year I went with the Cartels. I wear a men's 8.5 boot and I got a size M.
