I purchased these 32 Ultralights because I fell in love with the pair I bought 2 seasons ago. I rode them for 2 seasons and absolutely loved the boot back then, but it certainly wasn't without its problems. Mostly the tongue would slip to the side and cause lots of shin pain. I know 32 tried to fix is on last years model. I hadn't seen this boot before I bought it, so I didn't anticipate any changes from last year. Wrong!
The boot has almost been completely redesigned, and the problem I mentioned with the tongue is majorly improved. The tongue and liner is completely lined with Velcro so it fastens very securely, no chance of slippage. The colors and styling make for a good looking boot. If you've never owned a pair, and looking to buy these, I would warn you they do run small. I wear a 12 in DC, Nike, Adidas, and everything else. I had to buy these in 13. (and in purple.. haters gonna hate)

Definitely the lightest boot I've tried! They really aren't much heavier than a pair of walking boots.
The Ultralight is incredibly thin/low profile. For this reason you may want to move your stance closer to the toe edge of your board before hitting the park. It feels very unnatural, but the lack of any overhang is a HUGE bonus! Strangely though, the thinness doesn't let your feet get cold!
As for flex, they really soften up after a bit of use with no real sign of bulging making the boot uncomfortable.
The laces take a bit of getting used to. Very fiddly, especially if you are in a hurry.
The inners are a bastard to get in and out, especially if you use the supplied additional support foam.
Heat moulding didn't really achieve much, and the level 3 footbeds are SHIT!! They caused me real discomfort as my feet got chewed up on the sharp TPU frame. Very bad design!! Do yourself a favour and fork out for some Sidas Technologies Flashfit thermo-mouldable inner soles instead!! They will provide unrivaled support.
The foam (as opposed to rubber) soles wear pretty quickly, especially when scooting!
Overall, I am really happy with them despite the list of con's. After a bit of tweaking, I have got them just as I want them. It helps that Dogfunk provide peace of mind if things don't work out in the long run though.
