So-So

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The boots have a very small profile and next to my Burton Invaders of the same size, they are nearly 3/4" shorter in length and also have a much reduced overall profile compared to my Invaders. Basically the Invaders look like moon boots next to these.

My only complaints are that I seem to get a lot of heel lift in these boots and also get a pressure point on the top of my foot if I lace them too tight trying to avoid the heel lift, yet the boots fit perfectly. From a comfort standpoint I believe that my Invaders are much more comfortable and also seem to hold my heel better, but I wear these because of the smaller overall profile and also I'm a size 11 and want to avoid any heel/toe drag.
