I bought these for my wife and here is what she had to say:
These are the best snowboard boots I've ever owned. Sure, they are a bit more expensive than some of the others on the market, but you get what you pay for.
I'm an avid snowboarder and go about 3-5 times per week during the season to give perspective on how often I use my boots. I also use them all the time for splitboarding.
My first pair of Supremes lasted me about 5+ years and I've had a couple pairs in between. I keep coming back to the Supremes for a few reasons:
- The medium flex of the boots fits my versatile needs perfect. I've never felt like I have to "break them in". They've performed great out of the box. They're also super responsive.
-They are comfortable and warm. The cushioning in the heel makes them really comfortable for hiking and my feet never get sore. Burton uses space blanket material in the liners and it actually works to keep your foot warm.
-The sole is $$. Ya it's not name brand Vibram, but who cares, it sure feels like it is. It is grippy, making everything easier from getting off the lift to hiking.
-Speed-Zone lacing. If you haven't tried Speed Zone, you've been wasting your time! It's easy, fast, comfortable and you can still personalize your boot tightness.
-Low profile. I still don't understand why some snowboard boots are so clunky. These are sleek and don't have any gimmicks.
I wear a larger 8.5 street shoe and have these in an 8.5. They fit true to size, it just depends on how you like a board boot to fit. You might be spending a little more money up front, but these will last you a lot longer than a lot of the snowboard boots on the market.
