These are great boots. I have tried so many boots looking for ones that I love and I found them. These boots feel great, and my heel down. I feel like a better ride since I switched from my high end Burton boots to these DC boots. The boas are fast and I can adjust them on the lift giving me more time to ride. I need some help from DC and they were very helpful. What a great company. I wish more company took care of their customers the way DC does.
