these boots were sick the first month of riding, they fit well they are extremely comfortable, as they feel like shoes, but after that the sides and supports broke down, the brackets that hold the outer laces broke, the velcro on the inside broke as well. also towards the end of the season they began to break down. it may have been because i had the limited edition ones that come in lime green and pink laces but If you only ride a couple of days out of the month they work fine, but if you are riding 5 days out of the week they are no bueno.
What size should I order if i wear a size...
What size should I order if i wear a size 12 shoe? My boarding socks are thick - just wondering if it makes sense to get .5 smaller or bigger. Any help would be nice.
Well, if you want these you're going to have to get a size 12.5 because they no longer have a size 12. If you normally wear a size 12 shoe, and plan on wearing your thick boarding socks you should be good to go. I wouldn't worry about the 12.5 being too large.
I have had mine for 2 seasons, They feel the same today as they did when I got them and I ride about 6 days a month. When I first tried them on, they were so comfortable, like a pair of boots already broken in. I was worried that they would wear out in a month, but they haven't just have had to replace the laces.
The interior of the boot is incredibly soft and comfortable! Not much heel support though... I'd get shin splints at the base of my legs from the lack of support after riding for a couple hours. Other than that, these boots are well worth the buy. I can't say I'd buy them for 150... I got them discounted in February.
Oh yeah, also the flex in these boots are insane! Probably the best quality about them.
problematic pressure points
this boot has continued to give me pressure points, both compressing the pinky toes and the joint of my heel on the top of my foot. they are very flexy in the heel-toe movemnt and do not give much support at all for carving. they do have a small foot print and i don't seem to have many problems with heel lift. i am a big fan of rome products but will probably be returning this boot for an exchange to another brand, such as some 32s. i would not recomend these unless you have thin feet and wnat avery flexy boot.
SICK F****** BOOTSSS
They got mad flex and they're so comfy its effin RE-DICK!!!!
Soft but not too soft
These boots from Rome are listed as a Medium flex. I feel that they're more Medium/Soft. The forward lean is Soft but the lateral movement is Medium. The liners are extremely comfortable due to the soft fabric lining the inside and the padding that surrounds the Achilles tendon. The boot's shell is constructed well and show no wear after 20 days on the hill. The greatest thing about these boots is they feel like big tennis shoes even during the first time wearing them. So comfortable. I gave them a 4/5 because the design on the lacing system makes it a little hard to loosen the laces on the top of your foot after a day of riding. If there were half points it would get a 4.5.
