I freaking love these boots. I have the older ones, from uh, 2009 or 2010 but who's counting? I'm going to save up for these or see if they hit whiskey m. Mine have about had it, but they withstood some really awesome abuse to them... say what you want about Burton, these boots are solid and comfy and I have NEVER had a comfort issue with these. Even in the break-in period. so there.
All I can say is WOW. When I heard these were responsive, I had no idea. Coming from a crappier setup, this is like riding a sick of butter in a hot pan.
I do all kinds of mountain riding, and these are perfect! I put em on the Troop and there is no chatter and my feet / shins / ankles don't ache after hitting it hard on the packed powder. These bindings made jumps much sicker.
I freakin love this thing. Break in period schmake in period. It was smooth and fast on day one - so much better than the hand me down I was riding before. It rode like buttah in the powder AND ice. I was jumping it by the second run.
