BassmanRuchywrote a review of ThirtyTwo Prion Lace Boot - Men's on February 6, 2012
The title says it all...I was in a rush to grab a pair of boots and I ended up with a pair of 13's instead of 12's. My feet have too much room; consequently they move around and I get some heel lift. Plus they don't fit into the Rome 390 bindings I just got.
My stupidity out of the way, they seem to be pretty decent boots for the price...they have a moderate flex (at least for me) and grip well on ice and snow.
It's hard to write a really good review due to the boots not fitting right (and the fact that they weren't baked in-store), but I would say that these would be an excellent pair of beginner boots. ThirtyTwo makes some good stuff for the price (looking at picking up a pair of the Lashed)...just make sure you get the right size.
