I freaking love these boots. I have the older ones, from uh, 2009 or 2010 but who's counting? I'm going to save up for these or see if they hit whiskey m. Mine have about had it, but they withstood some really awesome abuse to them... say what you want about Burton, these boots are solid and comfy and I have NEVER had a comfort issue with these. Even in the break-in period. so there.
