these boots are great and pretty comfy. I never use the footbeds that come with the boots, they cause foot numbing on the front foot. I use footbeds from a pair of hiking shoes. Also the top part on the backside of the liner seems to wear on the back of my legs but its not that bad. I feel eventually the first thing to break on these boots would be the lace straps but so far no damage is showing. I wouldn't recommend resting your board on these boots while riding the lift. However, I would recommend these boots to a friend.
