Bringing skate to snow.
Taking design cues from classic Etnies kicks, the ThirtyTwo Men's Lo-Cut Snowboard Boot brings a low-profile skate feel to the snow. Seeing that it's all about bringing your skate style to the mountain, the Lo-Cut Snowboard Boot is an ideal choice for non-stop park laps, urban handrail sessions, and cruising with a freestyle outlook. The mid-level flex allows you to get creative on freestyle features, but without being too loose when riding the entire mountain. Traditional laces provide ample support for riders who'd rather lace their own boots than mess with quick-lace systems or unnecessary dials.
Standing apart from the competition, the Level 2 Intuition Foam liner provides a plush, custom-molded fit on the mountain. By wrapping your foot precisely, the Intuition Foam Liner alleviates the pressure points inherent to cheaper, ill-fitting boots. Following suit, the Level 2 footbed cushions your feet from heavy impacts with its molded EVA. For solid grip, the rubber sole features aggressive traction, but without the bulk of traditional snowboard boots. This low-profile design mimics the vulcanized sole found on your favorite skate kicks for a cleaner overall aesthetic.

- Q & A
Its a park boot
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I do like the boot. Great board feel, sole grips well, everyone likes the look, and really it handles resort riding just fine as far as carving goes. but its at home in the park and aside from resort or street stuff, don't do it. I took it out on a backpack trip just to test it out its limits and it got really soaked in honestly not that much snow. That is the problem I'm still having. Once it gets water saturation it will continue, even if you pull everything out and thoroughly dry them, they will still get wet while resort riding. If you really want that rubber sole, get em and know their limits. If you don't mind foam soles, get the Zephyr for the similar flex, or the Lashed for more versatility.
Overall I only give it three stars, but because its a park boot and not meant for much more, ill give it 4 mainly because it got wet after half a season.

What really makes these boots for me is the liner. Cushion all around on your foot and lower leg. Takes a little bit to mold to your foot but once it does it is an excellent boot fpr shredding the slopes.
