sick shoe once broken in

i'll be honest these were a bitch to break in but they are 100% worth it! they hold your ankle incredibly well and have a roomy toe box so you aren't smashing the front on your way down hill. They have excellent traction on everything and they are totally waterproof. i've had these in the wet utah snowpack with crampons on and i just returned from escalante where they griped the sandstone like a climbing shoe and kept my feet dry when i was walking through water. The uppers are really stiff and hurt the bottoms of my ankle bones when i was breaking them in so i got a gel heel cushion to lift my ankle until the show broke in. I would reccomend doing the same thing. Now the gel is out the shoe is incredibly comfortable and i couldn't be happier with my choice i know these shoes will last me a long time.
