First off I'm a freestyle snowboarder on the east coast, so I session quite a bit and like light, comfortable boots. My last 3 boots have all been 32, so I knew I was getting good stuff. I did buy these a little small, and you can wear them in to fit you (if you ride a lot), but I would recommend getting them true to size, as they are already smaller in length then your old boots (i.e. less toe drag) and they don't expand as much as the other 32s I've had. The one problem that I've had with 32s over the past few years is getting in and out of the boots. I'm a local rider so I usually lace up/untie in the icy parking lot, but the ultralites are pretty much as easy as sliding on/off your shoe, and you don't have to cut your hands with the laces to get a snug fit either. The one problem I see is the foam sole (instead of rubber), I am a litte skeptical of the durablity (since I walk on asphalt quite a bit) but so far no problems. Great boot, easy to get in, easy to get out, easy on your legs...just a little hard on the wallet, but hey they're cheaper now!
