These boots are stiff. If you ride park stay away. Great for free-riding and carving. They are pretty light. The lacing system is kind of a pain. I've been using Burton boots with the speed lacing system for the past 6 years and I miss them already.
This board is so sweet. Super carvey. Holds speed like a champ. The wheels are really grippy. Been riding a Sector 9 Bomb Hills lately, and I like the Arbor more. Plus the topsheet is outta control. No black grip tape on this baby.
