I demoed these from work last year and fell in love. Problem was, so was everyone in else. I could not get my hands on them all season (of 07/08) reason being they are amazing. super responsive, quick adjusting, super cush padding on the ankle strap, the toe strap you rock over your toes or over the top. I finally have a pair of my very own in Teal this season (yay) Marry these with your agent, artifact, mod (or whatever Rome deck you like) and you will be forever happy you did.
