I bought these boots last year and absolutely loved them. So when I shredded mine this year I figured it was an easy choice to just make a repeat purchase.
This year's model is definitely a little stiffer and snugger than last year's. Took quite a bit longer to break in, but overall still a solid boot. Tons of comfort padding underfoot and nice support in the ankle area.
Little disappointed that the boot is noticeably different from past models, but overall still happy with the purchase after about a 2 week break-in period, and I ride 6 days a week.
