So long as you wear the Select TLS, no one will be calling you Stench Foot.

I rode these boots for a season and was really pleased with the way they felt... until the lace snapped. The way the lace system is designed there's no way to just swap out a new lace in case of a break; you have to swap out the entire boot or ship it in to get it fixed. The boot itself was super comfortable. Ultra padding where you needed it, stiff - but not too stiff. This would be a five star boot if it had better lace system.
these boots fit true to size.
For example, everyone has a pair of cons All-stars yea?
Well I like 10.5s in those but I'm probably truly 11s and I get those when I can't get any 10.5s
These 10.5 Nitros are tight on my toes. I took the inner sole out of the liner and rode like that for 2 days then put it back in. They are gonna be fine and I like it that way and can put up with the initial jam to get that boot fit I love.
But unless you like the super-tight toe squash, there is probably no need to drop that half-size here.
Great support, good details and the right amount of flex. Great Freeride boot and TLS system is easy enough to get tight. I heard a couple scary sounds but no breaks. Might get a spare lace just in case cos it's a little daunting pulling from the same spot each time...
Can't compare them to anything really cos my last boots survived 8years so of course these feel like a Rolls Royce.
This Could be the boot.
I could tell this boot has alot going for it the minute I went to put it on. There's alot of attention to detail in the lacing system and especially the liner. With the Removable stiffeners taken out, I'd say the boot is pretty stiff, like a 6 to stiff (8) with them in. The heel hold down is phenomenal. I tried them on, and they're at least a half a size too big, so I couldn't get them to tighten enough. My heel was lifting, but then I threw them in my bindings and it seemed like the ankle strap pushed my heel into the heelcup, and it was locked in tight, way better than my current boot which fits me. I'm going to send these back and probably try out the celsius boot because I'm curious, but I wouldn't be surprised if I went back to this boot. They set the bar pretty high.
three boots in one....
this boot is the best boot i have put on... it comes with an unmatched lacing system that closes tighter than any other lacing system out and doesnt open up.... by having a seperate tongue stiffener and a spine reinforcer on the liner this boot also can be done so that you have three different flex patterns or when the boot starts softening up you can put the tongue stiffener and the spine reinforcing piece back in one at a time to keep the "new" feel to it.... this boot is also unmatched in durability... my old roommate finally has a boot that he cannot destroy due to this boot..... this boot is an incredible boot.... plus it just has a sick graphic...
