I switched to FLOW bindings last season so I bought these boots to replace Burton Motos since I thought they would fit the bindings better. After about 15 days on the slopes, not consecutive, the BOA kept coming loose. It got to the point that I was always having to retighten them with each run. Up until this issue I really loved them. They are still good, but I have gotten frustrated so I recently ordered some DC boots with traditional lacing to try. Part of the problem might be the fact that they are a size 13 and there might be just too much area to try and keep tightened with the BOA. I will still keep them since they aren't even a year old yet, and they may end up working better than the DCs. I will say that for me the fit of the FLOWS felt better than the Burtons.
