I didn't get to test these boots out much but, when I did they felt great. I guess because I wore rentals before. I love these boots and the price -great buy if you're not too picky. They also fit the binding great.
I am a first time snowboarder and these bindings are great although what isn't from burton. I love all the adjustments that burton gives you to give you that custom feel. I would recommend these for anyone that wants to snowboard.
