The title says it all...I was in a rush to grab a pair of boots and I ended up with a pair of 13's instead of 12's. My feet have too much room; consequently they move around and I get some heel lift. Plus they don't fit into the Rome 390 bindings I just got.
My stupidity out of the way, they seem to be pretty decent boots for the price...they have a moderate flex (at least for me) and grip well on ice and snow.
It's hard to write a really good review due to the boots not fitting right (and the fact that they weren't baked in-store), but I would say that these would be an excellent pair of beginner boots. ThirtyTwo makes some good stuff for the price (looking at picking up a pair of the Lashed)...just make sure you get the right size.
How wide are these in comparison to other ThirtyTwo boots? I have a pair of 2010 Prions (they're a size 13 and I'm a size 12 so they're too big / don't ask me why I got them) and they refuse to fit in the Rome SDS 390 bindings I just got (a buddy works at a local ski shop and got them for me for $100 / the bindings are a size L/XL).
I'm a little annoyed about the boots not fitting right, because they fit fine into my old Forum Faction bindings that were previously on the board. I know that I need a smaller boot (size 12); I just would like to know if I should even bother looking at getting a pair of these and knowing that they're small enough to fit into the Romes
I'm looking to purchase my first longboard, and this is the one that I was looking at the most. I'm looking for a great all-around board that will be able to easily cruise around (going into my sophomore year at college), but will also have the ability to be fairly stable on easy to medium hills. It also should carve really well (I've been snowboarding for ten years). I've heard only great things about Never Summer snowboards, so I hope that this longboard might fit the bill. Any help you guys can offer would be much appreciated.
