i just ordered my fourth pair of lakes. they are very comfortable and high performance. the boa system is unbeatable---another review said that it seemed like it wasn't durable so they returned it. stupid move, the boa holds up great. my last pair wore out after 3 years of heavy use. the cleat mount ripped out of the carbon sole, but i was still able to finish the ride safely due to the rubber wings on the sole which allow the shoe to stay put on a pedal even if the cleat isn't engaged. i'm an expert rider, but not a racer, and i tend to ride more "enduro" like terrain: big climbs with occasional hike-a-bike, technical descents, and small to medium sized drops. i live in vermont and ride 4-5 days a week. these shoes have worked great for my purposes and i will continue to buy them as long as lake continues to make them.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These boots ski better than my old Lange's on the downhill, Pow or Hardpack. Laterally stiff, with a strong forward progressive flex. They can drive big skis at high speed. They are like slippers on the uphill. Light, comfortable, huge range of motion. No compromises. I'm on my third season with them, skiing 50-70 days per winter, 60% backcountry, 40% lift serviced. One of the best pieces of gear I have ever owned.
