Purchased these for my wife. She was mostly happy happy w/ them. There was a problem w/ one of the ankle straps. The bend was giving her difficulty to get the ratch to the teeth. At the same length, one worked fine. I corrected this by just lengthening the problem strap. It could have been caused by the bindings shifting in package shipped from factory. This site provides a great service, and does it at great prices. Buy from them!
