I got the Deeluxe Rough Diamond Snowboard Boot a couple weeks ago. The boot was very comfortable straight out of the box. The heel locking system in the inner liner works excellent, I've never had a boot that made me feel as locked in as I am in this boot. The speed lace system in both the inner liner and outer boot works lightning fast and are very easy to use. The dual power straps around the shin give excellent support. I took the boot up onto the mountain for the first time the other day and I loved the boot as much as I did when I first tried them on.
