No this is in U.S. Currency. It would be 267.455 AUD. No shipping is not free they only do free shipping for U.S.
have the 08 version.wore these boots most of this year. depending on your bindings, you have soo much board feel with these boots(freestyle guys take note). they are lighter than my skate shoes! no joke. I had no problem with them fitting in my rome or burton bindings. like the other reviews said, the liners can be hard to take off due to the material and my sweaty ass feet, but i just loosen the laces a bit more, no prob. and this years supposedly has liner vents so maybe not as much of a problem.and they are a bit more on the stiff side due to the outer portion being diped in their special resy so I also ride mine a little looser. never any problems with heel lift, Very true to fit!! if you wear bigger socks or want some wiggle room, go up 1/2 size cause sometimes my toes slam agianst inside of boot,ouch(but I got monster 13's) overall smaller boot imprint due to reduced materials so lessens toe overhang. only con I can think of is since they are a minimalist disign, the liner is a little thin and isn't as comfortable(got a lil packed out) as when I first rode them at beggining of year. sweet boot overall. I love 32!! tm2 also rock for all mountain.
Seems all sole tech products, seem to lose their soles nowadays, these boots are no different, light as hell, not much padding, and steep prices with mediocre quality
Easiest Boot, I know, weird discription
First off I'm a freestyle snowboarder on the east coast, so I session quite a bit and like light, comfortable boots. My last 3 boots have all been 32, so I knew I was getting good stuff. I did buy these a little small, and you can wear them in to fit you (if you ride a lot), but I would recommend getting them true to size, as they are already smaller in length then your old boots (i.e. less toe drag) and they don't expand as much as the other 32s I've had. The one problem that I've had with 32s over the past few years is getting in and out of the boots. I'm a local rider so I usually lace up/untie in the icy parking lot, but the ultralites are pretty much as easy as sliding on/off your shoe, and you don't have to cut your hands with the laces to get a snug fit either. The one problem I see is the foam sole (instead of rubber), I am a litte skeptical of the durablity (since I walk on asphalt quite a bit) but so far no problems. Great boot, easy to get in, easy to get out, easy on your legs...just a little hard on the wallet, but hey they're cheaper now!
I bought these boots to replace my six year old pair of solomons that i had to replace because everything finally wore out. These boots were everything as advertised and were EXTREMELY light. Amazing feel when wearing the boots around. However, i have rome 390 bindings and these boots would NOT fit in my bindings at all. I tried adjusting the forward lean and all the straps, but could not make it work. These boots are very TRUE TO FIT. I wear a size 12 and could not make it work in an 11 1/2. If it works for your bindings, and your size, great boot. If not, i would hit up a Rome libertine boot.
Real choice boot
Ski shop told me when i walked in wearing my new un used Ultralights that I'll be in super pain for 3 days before they start to wear in, but I never got that... they were super comfy and not painful at all.
Overall a great boot and I'll buy again... the only problem is that getting the liner in and out is silly hard to do. My feet sweat like a rapist so I have remove the liner to dry, so beware.
Never the slightest bit cold and these things are lighter than slippers
Amended review - Super light, very decent
After using the '08 Ultralights for a year, I can tell you that I made a mistake in my original review. DO NOT get smaller/tighter boots even though they are heat moldable. The heat molding works, but not enough to compensate for a half size difference.
Here is my amended review:
I switched to these from '05 Burton Ruler boots because I wanted something lighter and that strapped into my bindings better (the Rulers were almost too large for my bindings, making them hard to strap them when in deep snow). I can tell you that these boots are about as light as basketball shoes, and are smaller than most regular boots. No problem using Burton cap-straps. I found them to be as warm as Burton Rulers, with about the same amount of sweat retention. The stiffness is just a little less than the Rulers but sufficient. I had to adjust my skyback incline by +1 to compensate for the boots being smaller than the Rulers. As for heat molding, DO NOT get boots that are a half size too small - get the size that fit your feet the best, then bring your boots to a pro shop to heat-mold them. On most ski mountains the pro shop will let you do it yourself on their equipment for free, although some places will try to charge you. In theory, you can also heat-mold them yourself in your oven or with a blow-dryer, but ThirtyTwo says lots of people ruin their boots that way, and I didn't take that chance.
Overall, fantastic boots if you're looking for ultralight. Good performance in every category I can think of. Probably not the most comfortable or responsive boots out there but I still rate them fairly highly in comfort and responsiveness.
light, maybe not durable
They are the lightest boots youll ever touch. Its like someone stole them from nasa or something. They way about the same as a pair of basketball shoes.
warm enough, the shell is a little wierd at first. It break in pretty nice, you have to leave the boot a little loose because it is pretty stiff.
i had a problem with the base foam completly peeling off my boot. I know most or all 32 botos have the foam base. Idk if thats a common problem, but it only happened on one boot. It could also be the fact that i was working park crew 6 days a week, and these boots got a workout all season. I guess if you ride a few days a week they should last a couple seasons.
Great feeling boot once you break it in, super light, but idk how much i trust the base foam.
