I've had mine for 2 years now. It took a little bit to break them in, but these are the best boots out there. The dual-zone boas are great for quick cinching to go down the mountain and quick uncinching if you want some R&R riding up the gondola, lift, tram, or whatever. Stiff enough to ride hard, yet easy to walk in. The air bladder is a really trick thing to have; it's a heel cushion that cups your heel and keeps your foot in place for some great board feel and control.
