Best boots i have ever worn, rode them a little at a local Michigan mountain and now am riding at Mammoth Mountain, Cali. And they hold up to anything wither its the deep powder or the 80ft jumps. The stiffness is perfect with almost no movement. And as a ender i can wear one pair of thin socks and my feet are never cold.
These boots are warm and comfortable. A bit tough to get the zonal lacing the first couple of times but it gets better each time I wear them. Good support and a perfectly stiff flex for me. I ride these on a Rome Mod 154 with Targa bindings. Neoprene Toe Box is really nice. The only problem I have had is that I keep cutting the side by the air pocket in the lift line from people running into my feet!
I've spent the last few seasons hiring boots, trying different sizes & brands out, but never found anything I've really liked. Admittedly, this could be because the liners on most hire boots are compressed out to shit from having all different shaped feet stuck in 'em.
At the beginning of last season I decided to try some boots on for size at the shop while my mates were at lunch, and as soon as I put these on I was sold.
No heel lift, no squashy toe, no pinching, just a perfect fit inside. And thats before I molded the liner....
The support in these is unreal, they take so much pressure off your legs, simply cause the boot can hold you up when your legs get tired.
If you try them out, make sure you go a half size up, as they tend to run a bit small.
