Bought these boots from this site about 2 weeks before the season started so I had a chance to break them in a bit and get them heat-molded. These boots are amazingly comfortable. No pressure points and the lacing system is top-notch. Burton has seemed to fix some of the problems found in last year's speed lacing systems, so all is well in that department. After a full day, you'll feel the boot start to fit a bit looser, but I think that's to be expected. I wear a size 14, so half sizes weren't an option, but if you wear a 12 or under, make sure the boot fits a little tight. The heat molding will push it out and it will make sure a more consistent ride. All in all, this boot truly does Rule.
