I've spent the last few seasons hiring boots, trying different sizes & brands out, but never found anything I've really liked. Admittedly, this could be because the liners on most hire boots are compressed out to shit from having all different shaped feet stuck in 'em.
At the beginning of last season I decided to try some boots on for size at the shop while my mates were at lunch, and as soon as I put these on I was sold. No heel lift, no squashy toe, no pinching, just a perfect fit inside. And thats before I molded the liner.... The support in these is unreal, they take so much pressure off your legs, simply cause the boot can hold you up when your legs get tired. If you try them out, make sure you go a half size up, as they tend to run a bit small. Highly recommended
I bought a pair of these as I was getting sick of not being able to get what I wanted out of a hire boot. When I tried them on at the store I was immediately impressed with the quality of fit, and then with the level of support. The boot is very firm, which is good for me as I tend to bend my knees heavily when boarding, and these boots tend to take the weight off my knees. Quality is great, no problems after a week of solid boarding 7 hours a day. I'm a 9.5 US shoe, and I had to order a 10.5 US to fit correctly.
