I was flat broke and had to find new boots this season. Found these and loved the look (JP) so i figured they'd last until i could get a few more pay checks. LOVE THEM, they're super comfy and don't make me walk with that bent kneed weird walk my old boots gave me. You might find you need to pop in a hot hands or something into the toe, don't know about you but in Manitoba where i board it gets to -50 celsius and is normally about -20 to 25. If you're hittin jumps or hikin your favorite rail, these boots are perfect.
