As everyone knows, boots are one of those gear items that once you get locked in you don't touch for as long as you can. So finally after about 6 heavily used seasons it was time for new boots. Heard good things regarding these especially the combo of boa and traditional lace. The inner liners are money, easy to tie up and loosen. Then the combo of boa and laces really help get your ankle locked down but no pressure points like a full boa boot has. Lots of customization, can also remove or add boot stiffeners.
My only issues is my front or left foot. My rear or right foot was perfect, no issues at all there. For some reason my left foot had horrible pressure points and bruising around the ankle, to the point I could barely snowboard after a couple days. So I ended up taking the ankle lock down piece out that Velcros to the back of the liner. That fixed the ankle bruising issue but now my heel comes up, thus creating cramps in the ball part of my front foot. I've tried a different foot bed but still having the same issue. I would rate these right now between a 3 and 4 star but since I'm working through the kinks and still breaking them in, giving the benefit of the doubt. They are easily still usable now, as I can deal with the cramps and heel lift in my front foot. But hopefully can figure it out soon.
