A little personal history for you: I've been riding a snowboard for over seventeen years now, and for twelve of those years I have been riding the same pair of Northwave boots (last 4 seasons ~20-30 days/year). The last few years I kept telling myself that I should get a new pair of boots, mostly because I partially wore through the inner liner at the heel, and saw some frayed areas on the eyelets of the laces. But I kept putting it off because the boots were so comfortable and worked so well for me there was no pressing need. Not to mention that I wanted to buy Northwave's again, but had trouble finding them in my local shops. Then FINALLY one of the eyelets broke and that sealed the deal to get some new gear.
One of the few places I was actually able to find the Decade in my size was Backcountry.com. I found it at one of the larger higher-end local stores, but they only had a full size smaller than my shoe size, and after I tried it on, I found my toes got smashed too much on my left foot. Plus the Black/neon color was not really my style (don't really love new Northwave styling in general) I ended up ordering a half size down from Backcountry (which was what my old boot was) and they fit very well. I love Northwave's new lacing system. It gives you nice, tight, adjustable support in different zones. The amount of lace from the pull strings can be a little unwieldy but they give you these little side pockets to tuck them into which ends up working pretty well. Tried the Burton system and could never get the fit right on both the upper and lower zones. Not surprisingly, the boot is much stiffer than my old one. It took a day or two to get comfy on my ankles and had a little bruise on my shin after the first day. The stiffness was a big change for me, and I found the added control it gave me a little scary at first. But after a few days in the boots I got used to it and the padding packed out to give me a very comfortable and responsive ride. One of the perks of these boots is that compared to my old boots, they come off super easy. Pull the tabs on the laces and POP!, which is great in the muddy parking lot.
All in all, I have been very happy with my past experience with Northwave, and my current purchase. The lacing system provides great comfortable fit, and the stiff boot provides a lot of control. If the quality of the boots matches my old pair I will still be riding these in 2022. One last note, I talked my fiancee into a pair of Northwave Opal's and she loves those too. Flashy design but super comfy fit! I highly recommend Northwave boots if you can find them.
These boots are super comfy but i had to send them back because they were to big. All the reviews i read said they were true to size so i bought my actual size which is 11 but were to big, and these boots along with any heat molded liner will pack out at least a quarter to half size bigger. I went to a store and tried on size 10 and are the size Im going with, there a little tight but once broken in will be perfect without having to add any insoles or custom fabrication.
First day on the snow and they felt great. Lots of cushioning in and around the foot. A little bit of pressure right around my ankles but that could have been due to overtightening which I do a lot of. Super easy lacing system! One lace tightens the lower boot over your foot and the other tightens the top of the boot around your calf. This allows for adjustment options that are not possible with other similar lacing systems. Easy adjusting them on the mountain/lift. I think the ankle pressure will be reduced once I have them heat molded.
As a note I did add an additional footbed for an extra snug fit and more arch support.
