These bindings are crazy light! The purp/neon green color ways kill it. Very responsive and great all around the mountain or straight to the park. There are two design flaws that are minor but should be addressed; first is the toe strap buckle sticks at times when cranked down and two, the toe strap sometime slides up a little. Over all 4.5/5 for me, unions are great. I rode size 11 forum kicker with reduced footprint in M/L and fit nice and snug.
These are great boots and are comfortable. I have always has pain with boots prior. With these the un-comfort is almost non-existent. They are on the stiffer side, but I can still butter and jib with ease. I actually prefer stiffer boots between the 5-7 range. They have reduced footprint so I can fit into my M/L union contact pro's with ease. I have size 11 boot and is reduced to size 10 on the outer sole. Good all around boot in my opinion.
