Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Overview:
They're comfortable, they ride fine, but DO NOT BUY if you need them to last. Two pairs fell apart on me within 10-15 days of riding each. The stitching quality is horrible, which is incredibly disappointing given their high price point. Look elsewhere if you're looking for a reliable boot.

Details:
I purchased the Driver X boots in Dec. 2016 looking for a stiff, rugged boot for all-mountain riding in the resort and the backcountry. For reference, I rode 70 total days between the winter and summer combined, with about 50/50 backcountry/resort. Within 10 days of riding the first pair, the stitching began falling apart on the tongue pull and along the edge of the lace system. Backcountry.com was amazing and gave me a new pair without any questions. The new pair lasted ~15 days before the stitching began coming apart. Then I put in 30 days with them in South America; they proceeded to fall apart completely. The lacing system on one boot completely ripped away from the boot body. As a result, they couldn't tighten and let in water. I am extremely disappointed in Burton. I understand that boots these days aren't made to last many seasons, but having them fail within 10-15 days is unacceptable. How can you charge $400 for a boot that won't last? I wouldn't take a new pair for free. Avoid these boots if you're looking for anything sturdy and long-lasting.
