Ditch the junker boots and slip into the Orion.

The description said they had speed lace, but they don't(which I know is not the boot's fault), but the laces tended to come loose from the cuffs. The toe box felt extremely cramped, and at the same time, I got tons of heel lift. After a couple days of riding, the fabric on the toe area was all frayed. I much prefer my Forum Constants over these.
Got these boots for my 16 year old, and he said they are the most flexible and comfortable boots he's had yet.. can't beat it for the price... back country has done it again!
do the boots run big, so if i got an 11.5...
do the boots run big, so if i got an 11.5 it would be like a 12
i think it would fit more like an 11.75...you want your boots to be tight and since these liners are heat moldable they will pack out even more. so order a half size down
Great pair of boots for an awesome price
I can't tell you enough how glad I got this pair of boots. It's very easy to adjust, and it's sick looking. I got compliments on them already. Extremely comfy. Best pair of boots I've ever owned bar none.
I got these boots and have been able to use them twice snowboarding. They are comfortable and not too stiff. Take note that they do run a half size big. I got the white ones, looks even better than the one pictured on here. You can see the picture on ride's website. My only complaint is that the glue on my soles came off, had to crazy glue it back. But I'm very pleased with it over all.
I have just bought these boots. i love them. they are so comfortable. i would highly recommend these boots to anyone who wants compfort but is on a short budget.
Ride Orions Rock!
Oh yeah, I'm super stoked about these boots. This is my fourth pair of boots in three years, and by far my favs. I've had Lamar(yuk, they suck), 5150(so-so) and the Thirty Two Prospect (not bad), but these Orions are the best. They are super comfy and kept me completely dry and warm all day and all night, even in the slushy stuff. Not to mention, they look cool and go well with black or white. They are killer with my white Burton bindings. I love the phat laces, so I don't have to shred my fingers while tightening them up.
Heads up though, they do run about a 1/2 size small. I had to send back my sz. 10's and wait for a sz. 10 1/2 before I could use them. They are also a little bulky on the outside, I had to adjust my bindings out to the max for a good fit. But, once I did, everything was cherry.I mos definitely recommend these boots.
I just got back from a snowboarding trip with these boots and I couldn't be happier! I love the analog lace system because it allows you more control over where you can tighten your boots. The response on these are great. They also have just the right amount of flex. Overall I would recommend these boots to anyone who needs a great boot at a great price!
