different from last years
They made these boots a lot more stiff than the Emeralds from last year. I have always worn Burton boots, and every year they have fit true to size. But in these boots I had to order a full size up to get them to fit. I only have to tighten the laces inside and I leave the outside speed laces totally loose. They are cool boots though. They just take a little getting used to. I recommend these boots to anyone who rides 2+ times a week, otherwise they'll feel to stiff.
