great boot for skinny ankles!!
I would wear these ALL the time. These are my 3rd pair of boots since i have started riding and they will probably be my last. I have very skinny ankles and have never been able to find a boot that actually kept my foot in place (I would turn toe side and my heel would lift up making it very hard for me to control the responsiveness of my board). I had burton freestyle's for 5 years which I really liked but "ugraded" to DC judges which I also thought I liked until I got these. The sapphires are the most comfortable boot I have worn, they have great support, the pads keep my ankles nice and snug, and I know there are all these boots with fancy boa and crazy lacing systems but you really do get the best custom fit with regular old laces. These also have a spot for a heater pack so if you are always freezing like me and wear toe warmers, you can get an electric one so you don't have to mess with those anymore. I am so glad I bought these. Oh and I have them in coach and every one on my ski team is obsessed with them, even random people have commented how sweet they are.
