The flexy Rome Libertine Snowboard Boot allows you to dial your fit for all-day performance and comfort.
The Rome Men's Libertine Snowboard Boot gives you a heat-moldable liner for excellent fit and comfort. The Rome SDS last incorporates a deep heel cup lined with directional fabric so you can rip toe side turns without your foot slopping all over the place. Lockable zonal lacing lets you strap it up super tight where you want it and leave it loose where you want—you make the call. A grip patch on the outer Achilles interacts with your highback to give you greater control. Molded footbeds give you comfort and decrease foot cramps so you can stay on the hill when deep, light snow is beggin' to get schralped.

Almost regret my new Kaijus
Seriously....Every now and again I get sentimental about my Libertines. Still have them. I wonder how they ride after upwards of 50 days over 3 seasons...... :)
Skate or snow?
This is a great boot that fits and feels like a skate shoe. They are very flexible and very comfortable. If you are spending a day in bounds goofing around, this is the boot for you!
These boots are awesome. The first time I tried them on which was at home, not on the mountain, I thought they were too small. I wore them for 3 hours. I was gonna send them back but wanted to try them on again to make sure they weren't going to work. I cut my toe nails and tried them again. They fit perfectly. I wore them for another couple of hours to continue breaking them in. The bottom line is these boots mold to your feet and they are super light compared to a lot of other boots out there. I kinda took a shot in the dark with these boots but they turned out to be a great buy. Lacing em up is a small chore but not everything is perfect.
just got these boots at the beginning of the season, scaled down a half size and the liners mold perfectly to my feet, the flex is perfect and they come with j bars to more ankle support,
These boots are freaking awesome.
The look. Looks better in real life than on the pics
The comfort. This boot is very comfortable it shapes around your feet and it is heaven
Nothing, maybe that laces arent the fastest thing on earth

I picked up size 9.5 but normally wear size 10, 10.5 in shoes think 9.5's will be too tight or not?
I tried these boots on and they are truly the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever tried. Though I am a size 13 and the size 14 fit perfectly, probably because of all the padding. Flex is more medium soft than soft.
Also, it's been over a year since I purchased and I ride about 50+ days a year and these boots are holding up amazing. My roommate uses overrated Burton boots and he is always complaining about foot pains. Where as I forget I'm even wearing boots because these are so comfortable, in other words I'm never in a hurry to take them off. I've down a considerable amount of backcountry hiking and the boots feel the same as they did the first day I wore them. I'm still not even using the ankle inserts yet so I expect alot more life out of these.
should you get these in normal size you...
should you get these in normal size you usally get?
Yes, Rome boots run true to size. If your whole size isn't available don't be afraid to scale down by 1/2 a size, that is if you put in enough days to pack the liners out.
Buttery flex, noodly jib that gnar
I agree with Stephen Koch. I wear a 10.5 and ordered the 10.5. With snowboard socks on (medium thickness) it fit perfectly-any smaller would have been bad. Standard foot width.
As for the boot - very comfortable and extremely lightweight. The liner is moldable, and is the "2F" model, for reference. Has amazing heel hold without creating pressure points or pinching. Lacing system is excellent, the amount of control you have over your heel lift alone is a breath of fresh air compared to my zone-style Burton Motos. The laces themselves seem very durable and do not loosen throughout the day. They fit a park setup beautifully, and are responsive enough to take anywhere on the mountain. Highly recommended!
these boots are absolutely incredible!
they fit true to fit im a size twelve and they fit perfectly.i have the rome 390 bindings and they work great.
they are super street looking and are comfortable to wear just walking around or building a pow jump. i was pleasantly suprised to see how light they are. the moldable heat lining's work perfect after about 3-5 days or one or two days of hiking. Great boot and great buy, your missing out if you dont get this!
jib addict? then get these
My girl picked these up for me for christmas, top 10 best thing to ever happen to me. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BOOTS! they heat mold to your foot so I'd suggest wearing them a couple day before you take them out, good flex and the new wave colors will make you feel better after a nasty biff
Just got the boots in the mail today and I must say, they are super comfy. Not to mention that they are the easiest boots to put on that I have ever seen in my 13 years of snowboarding. And for the price?? these boots are fully legitimate.
Was excited for a big trip to the mountains with my new boots that i ordered and you shipped the wrong ones... i had to exchange them the next day for some new ones from a store by my house of i would have missed out on the trip. Didnt get the boots i wanted and when i called to see what i could do the first person was very unhelpfull but the second guy was nice and gave me a 10% discount. Not really impressed since the shipment took over 2 weeks to reach me when they told me on the phone i would only be 5 days... not sure if i will use dogfunk again.
Great softer boot
The Rome Libertine boot is an excellent softer flexing boot. I normally ride stiffer boots and got a pair of these to use for powder conditions and also to have a very comfortable boot. Rome boots have a roomy toe box, which I like because I have a fairly wide foot. I also regularly put toe warmers in my boots and there is enough room for this, even downsizing to a 10.5. My street shoe is 11 / 11.5 US. These boots flex like butter, are comfortable and light. If you want a generously flexing boot with a wider toe box that rides and looks great, the Libertine's are for you.
very comfortable with sick styling
I got the drunk edition of this boot and its 10 times better than my first pair of Burton Moto's. no pressure points, the liner is heat moldable, and it comes with 2 pairs of J-bars in case you have skinny ankles or heel lift. The ankle brace is solid and not uncomfortable. I had pressure points on the top of my foot with the Burtons, but not with these. soft-med flex, but didnt notice anything bad with my all-mtn freeriding. I bet they're even comfier once i get them heat molded.
They also fit perfectly with my Flow M9 bindings, the burtons were slightly bigger. The only downside is that they're traditonal lacing, which is good for tightening/slacking an area as opposed to the speed zones or boa's that tighten overall. I've never had to tie them back up while riding either, so the laces work great. Love the Drunk Banana, they look like big skater shoes! It was a toss up between these and the K2 T1's for me. the T1's have an inner boa ankle + trad lacing system that's sick, but these have style! so if you're thinking about buying any other boots...Don't Do It!
Nice flex and sick style
I rode the 2009 Libertine last spring and it was awesome. At the time I was on a 2008 pair of Burton Sabbaths. The libertine sized similarly. It was a little softer though, which I liked for the park. These boots look amazing in person, with the zipper details. Get the Bowery glove to match and bam, sick. Get these if you want a comfy, good flexing freestyle boot.
These boots are uber comfy, a bit wide at the base, but the perfect flex! If you didn't know the guy who started Rome was in the mix with Burton for a while designing boots and binder's, but he bailed cause Burton's blowin up. So if you've ever had a pair of Burtons and like there comfiness and support, but want something thats gonna last longer and not just randomly fall apart! Rome is where it's at get em son!
Dude i test a ton of boot at the on-snow and they where the best, just bought a pair.
