TM-Two Jones XLT Snowboard Boot
Going from massive Alaskan peaks to the mystical forests of Japan, the ThirtyTwo TM-Two Jones XLT Snowboard Boot serves up the supportive feel and aggressive traction desired by freeride fanatics. Seeing that it's Jeremy Jones' signature TM-Two boot, the Jones XLT improves upon the popular original TM-Two with the outstanding grip of a Vibram sole. A big benefit of switching to a Vibram sole, the heel welt is compatible with semi-automatic crampons, which allows access to inhospitable alpine zones and glacial expanses without worrying about traction issues.
The classic lace-up design gives riders the ultimate control to cinch down the boot tightly, with the tongue tension system preventing unwanted heel lift. The boot's articulated cuff keeps shell distortion to a minimum for support retention over the course of the season. Adding to the boot's supportive feel, the Performance Backstay maximizes energy transfer to your heelside edge, while the thermo-moldable Performance liner conforms to the exact shape of your foot for a custom fit. There's also a rubber toe cap for reinforcement when you're kicking into icy crusts and climbing craggy peaks.

- Q & A
Super solid charging boot
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Comfy, warm, well built, stiff and supportive. Full vibram sole is awesome, and spine material keeps great rigidity. The upper cuff sliding over the lower stops creasing and increases the life of the boot. So far I'm super glad I got a pair. After 140 days the heel welt stitching blew out and a harness eyelet gave out, but 32 sent me a replacement pair free of charge.
Long time Rider
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been riding the basic 32 tm-2 boots for a while, but this year decided to give the XLT a go. Basically the same boot, just a tad stiffer and a little bit bulkier (just a tad though. 9.5 tm-2 fits a medium binding, so does XLT. A 10 tm-2 fits a medium but the XLT in a 10 may require a large). That extra bulk is worth it though; there's a reinforced the cap that can take a beating! These being the Jeremy Jones model, have a small gaitor at the bottom of the boot. Hasn't mattered much so far but come the sloppy spring days, I think they'll help a ton in keeping my feet dry.
