huge fan of burton boots... after going thru 2 pairs of rulers, thought i try a stiffer boot and these boots are awesome. super stiff with excellent ankle support without sacrificing function. i wish had these 2 years ago before i tore up my ankles. as with all burton boots, these are super comfy and warm. i've always been a fan of speed lacing... love it or hate it. you decide.
too bad i had to return these boots on the count of the boot being 1/2 size too big.
