    Push splitboard exploration to lofty heights.

    Known for tackling the world's most formidable terrain, Jeremy Jones demands a highly responsive boot that's not only reliable in the backcountry, but also extremely comfortable on strenuous approaches. Designed through rigorous testing on the world's most demanding terrain, the ThirtyTwo Men's Jones MTB Snowboard Boot represents the evolution of backcountry touring performance. Innovative design features, such as a waterproof-stretch lace gaiter and Walk Mode collar with Boa cuff release, make this boot essential for serious splitboarders looking to push the boundaries of what's possible in the mountains.

    Designed from the ground up for the needs of touring, the Walk Mode collar features a Boa cuff release. This allows for longer strides when you're skinning, also saving your knees from the stress of a traditional, motion-restricting boot in tour mode. The waterproof-stretch lace gaiter prevents laces from freezing solid when you're out in the backcountry all day or even camping to get the goods. This was something Jeremy specifically addressed, as he had previous experiences with his boots freezing solid, resulting in him sleeping in his snowboard boots on those frigid overnights in the backcountry. Additionally, you'll appreciate the aggressively lugged Vibram sole, complete with a heel welt for use with both strap and clip crampons.

    A new addition for this season, the Jones MTB Snowboard Boot features recoil flex control, which is an adaptable insert for controlling just how stiff you'd like this boot to be. It's a great feature if you're touring a bit mellower terrain or need an extra-stiff flex for hitting steep chutes and gnarlier alpine faces. Another new addition for this season, ThirtyTwo's Elite liner uses a combination of Energy foam and traditional Intuition foam for a boot that's less likely to pack out after 100-days or more of riding. As you'd expect, the Elite liner is heat-moldable, with the Intuition foam providing a custom fit to the unique contours of your feet. Plus, the liner's equipped with a reinforced harness that's more supportive for locked-down heel hold.

    Amazing Boot, Still Room for Improvement

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm a tester for Jeremy, and have used 3 iterations of this boot.

    STRONG POINTS:
    FLEX AND RIDING PERFORMANCE: Better than any other boot I've used. Hands down.
    GATOR: This is a game changing addition to a snowboard boot. Keeps snow out of the laces and thus keeps your boots MUCH drier. The gator also has the surprising benefit of giving a much "cleaner" boot / strap interface. The Karakoram AirForm ankle straps feel like they were designed in unison with the boot. Its just a clean and ergonomic fit.
    Walk Mode: Also a game changer. Now that they've updated to the spectra, the cord doesn't break, and the walk mode allows for infinitely greater backcountry touring efficiency.
    VIBRAM SOLE: The shape and tread pattern of the sole is phenomenal. Best Vibram sole on any snowboard boot, hands down. Nice and flat with a flat heel, and tons of traction when smashing the boots into harder snow conditions.
    CRAMPON WELT: Works incredibly well, and is nice and clean, and doesn't stick out and give you boot out on heel side turns.
    INDUSTRIAL DESIGN: They're Steezy!! They look awesome. Because, C'mon, style does in fact matter, and the design is a combination of technical "La Sportiva Alpinist" boot, but also a snowboard boot through and through.
    HARD PLASTIC TOEBOX: On the newer iterations of this boot, the toebox allows for kicking in to hard snow and crusts without making you lose your toenails. AWESOME!!

    WEAK POINTS:
    BOOT SHANK: As a previous reviewer mentioned, the "shank" is WAAAAAY too soft to be considered a full throttle "mountaineering" boot. Adding a fully rigid sole to this boot would do several things: 1) Infinite alpine capabilities on REAL lines in the big mountains. Being able to front point with your crampons without a single thought is a massive advantage. 2) The boot would last longer and ride better on big, technical descents where you're dropping out of the sky. Power transfer on 50+ degree slopes in hard snow conditions requires rigidity through sole so that your feet are not absolutely exhausted by the time you reach the base.
    WEIGHT: Let's face it, the Dynafit guys are still KICKING OUR ASSES on the technological side of boot development. This boot in US Size 9.5 weights 1,500 grams!! The Fitwell boots in the same size weigh 1,200 grams, and a modern semi-technical AT ski boot weights 800-900 grams. I feel this boot could lose 500 grams EASY. Use way less bulky plastic in the sole and mid rand, and use thinner hard plastics and carbon fiber. Even if you made the boot cost $300 more, people would buy them.
    WALK MODE OPENING: The boot gator does such a sick job of keeping the boot dry, so why the HELL does the back of the boot open right up to let in snow and ice? It's an intellectual failure on this front.
    MATERIALS BREAK DOWN: I hear many people say this boot has a "10 out of 10" stiffness. Well, in my experience, the boot starts off with an amazing flex, but then breaks in to be quite literally a soft rubberized sandal. I happen to like a softer ankle flex so it works for me, but if you wanted to make these boots last longer I think more attention should be paid to the materials used in uppers. Perhaps use more of these hi-tech plastics that can still flex super well, and not this fabric stuff.

    Let's acknowledge the fact that every technical product has room for improvement. I seriously applaud Jeremy and 32 for making this boot, and pushing the soft boot game to a new level of refinement. This is still in my opinion the best soft boot for overall splitboarding, and easy to moderate snowboard mountaineering. If you're one of those lunatics who's combining super technical ice climbing with your snowboard descents, then the Fitwell or a hardboot system is probably a better choice. This being said, if the sole were made fully rigid and the boot went on a weight loss program, this would change everything, and the boot would compete with ANY world class alpine double boot.

    Too much toe bang and sloppy fit.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This review is for the 2nd gen of this boot although I don't think there's much different at all as far as fit. I bought my street shoe size and Jones' must have hobbit feet because these are made for short, wide feet. I get unbearable toe bang in my normal size although it feels and looks like the size I should be using. The lacing on the liners and outer shell are maxed out when tightening straight out of the box and this is with a heavy duty insole inside (I have a medium "D" foot). The liner also doesn't stay tight. The sole is not stiff enough for what's supposed to be a "mountaineery" snowboard boot. They flex the same as any other boot. The heel cleat is pointless as I always use full strap on crampons.

    The walk mode is really nice and is the selling point of the boot, but the fit of the boot is terrible. Today I rode hard snow and the toe bang was insanely painful. I can't use them anymore. I couldn't imagine going up a size as the toe to heel profile is the same as all my other boots.

    They DO RIDE WELL. I'll give 'em that at least. Back to Fitwells I guess. I might try the burton tourist as I'm a big SLX fan.

    Poor design and poor experience

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I was very excited about these boots, but after using them I had a change of heart.

    - The boots have too much material on the inner liner and the hard lace up liner. I tighten these until each side presses up against each other, resulting in a loose fit. After a few runs they really loosen up and the entire riding experience is effected. Heal lift, entire foot moving around in boot, etc.

    - Boa system design flaw and manufacturing defect. The boa system constantly comes undone when riding down and even touring up. Because your pant leg covers up the boa system, it’s not easy to retighten on the fly. Once the boa pops out, the entire heal becomes loose and you have to stop, unstrap, tighten...

    - Backcountry.com: when I brought up these issues, they pawned me off on ThirtyTwo and wiped hands clean. Due to the inferior return policy I will not be buying this type of gear moving forward and will opt for REI instead with their better return policy.

    - ThirtyTwo: Regarding the extra material, they said this was not a manufacturing defect. Regarding the boa system they told me to talk to them about it and I never heard back . This was upsetting because as a customer of Backcountry, then ThirtyTwo, and I should not have to speak to their vendors in their manufacturing process.

    This is a lengthy review, but for the amount of money these boots are (and how much money I’ve spent with backcountry), it has left a sour taste in my mouth.

    BOA Broke After Limited Use

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The BOA system for the walk mode broke on my boots after limited use. When they were working I absolutely loved them. I have ThirtyTwo TM2 boots for inbounds, and so these Jones MTBs were a natural fit to go BC. The walk mode works great, making for a comfortable ascent, until the BOA breaks and leaves your boot sloshy.

    It's been slow getting a resolution from ThirtyTwo on these. I'm on my third week trying to get a resolution from them. I've gotten the run-around trying to get these fixed. There doesn't seem to be any sense of urgency at ThirtyTwo to get me back up and running with fixed or new boots.

    I've also been reading a lot of similar stories about the walk-mode BOA breaking on these boots.

    Before buying these ask yourself if you want something that apparently wasn't designed well, wasn't tested thoroughly, and isn't supported very well when it does break.

    Note that BOA was extremely responsive when I contacted them, and did send me parts to attempt to upgrade these to a spectra, but the kit doesn't fit the way these boots are built.

    BOA Broke After Limited Use

    Love

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    hese boots are WELL worth the investment!!!! If you do any touring all, or you simply hate walking through the lodge, or to/ from the parking lot like a goon these are the boots for you. Before getting into all of the amazing features for backcountry touring, these boots are definitely stiff enough to shred inbounds as well, without any issues. I have yet to have any problems with them, or have any concern with them not being stiff enough when cruising on the corduroy groomers.

    The gaiters are amazing when in the backcountry for extended periods of time to prevent laces from feezing. They are super comfortable and have additional heel inserts of 3mm and 5mm (4 of each size and pictured) to really tailor to your liking. The combination of the Vibram sole, compatibility with crampons, and the walk mode make these hands down the best boots for backcountry riding.

    They do run a bit small. I have had a couple pairs of ThirtyTwo boots previously and had to size up from them and what I typically wear. Feel free to reach out to me directly with any sizing questions or any questions at all!

    Insanity

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First off the boot has been updated since the last review. The Boa cable has been replaced by spectra cable, so its soft, doesn't kink and break. Its rock solid now. Second, its absolutely insanely stiff. This is a true 10/10. Even with the plastic struts removed they are still a 10/10 -9/10. They give you incredible power transfer though, resulting in edge hold and unmatched performance at speed. Amazing uphill capability allowing you to hike like mad, and descend at break neck speed. If you like hard carving, charging, and freeriding this is the ultimate. For a resort rider this is overkill (unless your riding big terrain in bounds). Fit of the Elite liner is immaculate and amazing after heat molding twice. The adjustable foot bed is a nice touch but superfeet still take the cake.

    UPDATE:Walk Mode BOA line keeps breaking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    UPDATE: I sent an email to 32 and to BOA and they are sending me the parts to upgrade my old boot to the new spectra lace. Hopefully this fixes the issue.

    I have had these for a few years and have done some pretty extensive ski-mountaineering in them. I would give these a higher rating because the boot is awesome in pretty much every aspect except I have had the BOA chord for the walk mode break on a number of occasions. It has happened at least 4 times. It seems like the BOA chord starts to fray where it connects to the main boot. I try not to use the walk mode anymore due to this and carry an extra BOA lace and BOA tool when I go touring.

    Other than that, a really solid boot.
