I bought these boots under strict instructions from my boot-fitter in Aspen Highlands. I should note that customizations were made after the purchase - but I have weird feet, so it was necessary. I added custom insoles & lifts under the toes. However, they are a nice stiff boot, very comfy - great overall performance. If you've got more normal feet - these should be great out of the box. They've really stepped up my game.
