Really like the shells, overlap, walk/tour mode, the little buckle catches on the top 2 buckles,etc.

Like others, I had initial problems with the fit of the G-fit liners -- just too tight in the width of the forefoot, even after heat molding. This basically prevented me from putting in full days in the backcountry due to foot pain.

A second heat molding has made all the difference! 10 minutes at 280 did the trick, much softer than the initial molding, and now I'm loving these boots. Just got back from a week of hut skiing in Canadian Rockies without a single hot spot or other bit of foot pain (wish I could say the same for my knees!)

Also, as others have commented, the liners started showing wear after about 5 days. For me, it was caused by the inner cuff rivet -- fixed with a little duct tape on the shells.

For reference, I've been skiing Scarpa tele boots with Intuition liners for many years now. For various reasons switched to AT for this season -- pushing Manaslu's with Vertical ST binders
