I get style points on these boots all the time from people on the lift. Laced up they look like retro ballin' shoes. I snagged them off of SAC for like 65 clams and I don't think theres a better boot for the price. The liners are super cozy and somehow seem to maintain the perfect temp in all conditions. Even broken in they hold solid but are flexible enought to maintain blood circulation. (I lace up tight). There are only two "flaws"... one is the liners don't breathe or wick real well and when I take them off at the end of the day my feet always seem to be a little soggy from the mid-calf down...but when you're in them you don't notice at all. The other is that if you're like me and were blessed with feet the size of Andre the Giant (14)... since the edges on the heel and toe are flat, unlike most "banked" style boot edges, it creates some serious drag. I helped alleviate the problem with a utility knife and a belt sander, but if you can stand on a board without foot overhang then it's not an issue.
These bindings are the real deal. Super comfortable and stellar performance make for a hella day on the mountain. I have size 14 clown feet so the adjustable edges make for that much needed extra space to eliminate toe/heel drag when you cut hard into a deep carve. I seriously get compliments on them every time I ride. Only one probelm...I gave them a rating of 4 because on the second day out one of the screws came loose and fell out on my back foot heel where the highbacks pivot so I had to heel side it down on my stomp pad. Nothing a little Loctite can't fix, but still irritating.
Also, I bought the purple color because they look more like a dark blue on the back in the pics but I assure you they are as purple as your nurple. Still a sick ass ride though. There's no going back once you rock a step in.
