I love the boot but they have a week spot. I have had 6 pair of T1's these are the the first I broke . I have worn them out so the forward lean dosen't work well after 3 years, this time I broke the steel bar in less than a year. The rest of the boot is great. I thought it would be better that it wasn't going to work it's way deeper into the plastic to be like on walk even locked in ski. But as I first thought the bend is a week spot.
