i love thirtytwo and im pretty bummed these didnt work out. For being so low on the flex scale, they felt super stiff to me. they didnt have a good heel pocket. i need a boot with a TON of cushion. there was no secure place to put the handles. i did clip the handles to the back of the tongue but they always came out for some reason. tried these out at stratton in VT and while i was taking a break b/c my feet were so numb i ended up going in the burton store and trying on the Emeralds. SO MUCH PADDING. my feet were in heaven. needless to say i bought them today =) hopefully theyll be better.
And to the people at thirtytwo: girls need more padding for heel hold!! work on that!
i was a little wary about the lime green color (and they are an intense lime green) but they match board perfectly. I had the large but they were a bit big for a size 9 boot so i returned them and got the mediums. They do fit better but my thirtytwo boots fit a little too snug width wise. Hopefully once they get worn in and wet my boot will slide in and out better.
12/16/09 Sadly I had to return them....just didnt work out on the mountain. =( they were just to hard to get in, i ended up using them like i would regular bindings. im saving up for the ride contrabands.
I bought two, one for me and one for my boyfriend. my went on without any error but then my boyfriends glue peeled off with the plastic. Then on our first time out for the season my stomp pad fell off getting of the lift! but i slapped it back on and it hasn't fallen off yet. They grip REALLY good but these stomp pads are quite faulty so i might return them. =/
I had bought these boots for my boyfriend for christmas (needless to say he got them early) he says that they fit very well and they're light. He only has a problem with the tightness of taking them off and putting them on. Otherwise very good boot!
When i got them in the mail i was so excited. the pants are nice, comfortable and look good. but im 5'3 and the pants were quite few inches to long by like 4 or 5 inches. if your on the short side i wouldn't recommend these pants. DC should definitely make them in short, tall and reg. sizes! im sad that they're too long. =/
