annoying speed zone pressure
I'm reasonably happy with the Ozones. I bought mine a 1/2 size down from my shoe size and put custom orthotics in to take up some of the extra volume around my skinny foot. They have packed out to fit perfectly. The flex is a little on the soft side, but that should be expected from a freestyle boot. The overall ride and feel were what I was looking for. Somewhat responsive with decent board feel and a low profile sole. There is, however, a downside. The day always starts well, but after 2-3 hours of riding I can feel the lace routing channels pushing into my shins. It's a dull, annoying sensation that's tolerable, but should not happen in a high end boot. I think that Burton, in an effort to save on weight, sacrificed comfort by removing some integral padding from the tongue. If this issue is fixed you end up with a stellar boot.
