I recently brought these in the turquoise color and I have used them solidly for a few weeks. These boots look fantastic and are incredibly comfortable. They are a little softer than my previous 32's but have performed well all over the mountain and feel fantastic.
This is the first time I've had fast track laces and I've found them really convenient and I have found they stay firm. I redo them at lunchtime just for that extra tightness but this is what I would also do with laces so is no different for me.
The boots have packed out about half a size as with most boots so I found buying a half size smaller than street shoes has been a good fit for me.
I would prefer a bit more ankle support but these are just so comfortable, convenient and surprisingly warm that I would not change them.
