Jones MTB Snowboard Boot
Designed through rigorous testing on the world's most demanding terrain, the ThirtyTwo Jones MTB Snowboard Boot represents the evolution of backcountry touring performance. Innovative design features, such as a waterproof-stretch zippered gaiter and Walk Mode collar with Boa cuff release, make this boot essential for serious splitboarders looking to push the boundaries of what's possible in the mountains.
The Walk Mode collar features a Boa cuff release, which allows for longer strides when you're skinning, also saving your knees from the stress of a traditional, motion-restricting boot in tour mode. The Full-Zip gaiter prevents laces from freezing solid when you're out in the backcountry all day or even camping to get the goods. This was something Jeremy specifically addressed, as he had previous experiences with his boots freezing solid, resulting in him sleeping in his snowboard boots on those frigid overnights in the backcountry. Additionally, you'll appreciate the aggressively lugged Vibram sole, complete with a heel welt for use with both strap and clip crampons.
Recoil flex control, which is an adaptable insert for controlling just how stiff you'd like this boot to be, from touring a bit mellower terrain to extra-stiff flex for hitting steep chutes and gnarlier alpine faces. ThirtyTwo's Elite liner uses a combination of Energy foam and traditional Intuition foam for a boot that's less likely to pack out after 100-days or more of riding. As you'd expect, the Elite liner is heat-moldable, with the Intuition foam providing a custom fit to the unique contours of your feet. Plus, the liner's equipped with a reinforced harness that's more supportive for locked-down heel hold.

- Q & A
Upsides and downsides
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased the ThirtyTwo Jones MTB to take with me on long splitboard treks that included multi-day tours and would require crampon use.
Firstly, this boot runs small, nearly a full size smaller than the Burtons I've been riding with. So definitely size up.
This is definitely a burly boot that has some sweet features that should really help you out on extended or multi-day tours. But with all the beef (vibram sole, gator over the laces, and crampon compatibility) comes extra weight - so be ready for this as well.
I also felt like this boot is extremely stiff compared to other snowboard boots. Expect these to take a few full days to break in. Additionally, I would heat mold the liners at home before heading out to ensure the best possible fit. I developed a few blisters after doing a two-day, twenty mile tour - molding the liners should minimize this.
On the ride down these boots kill it and will keep you locked in and feeling right.
Jones MTB's ain't no joke ..

Perfect fit couldn't be any happier with how well these boots were made ~ they should last for many years to come.
these boots are heavy duty! work greats throughout the day!
Great but dissapointing

3 stars because there is no other boot on the market with a good sole (crampon compatibility and vibram) that is stiff enough for the job and walk mode is amazing. Not 5 stars because on day 15 the boa keeping the high back portion of the boot tight (walk mode to ride mode) snapped. I happened to be in the resort on the way to a side country tour, so not the end of the world but ended my day. My touring partner just did some resort laps but I had to drive back down to reality. As an FYI, duct tape doenst really have the gusto to keep this thing solid, but you should maybe consider carrying some just to get you back to the car. This would have really sucked in some higher consequence areas. Why use nylon boas? I replaced with steel and some industry techs I told were blown away when I told them that Jones would risk using the weaker component in a touring boot.
My karakorm bindings just broke, so for Jermey Jone's recommendations, I'm 0/3 (lit) on equipment making it through the first half of my season. Big fan of his but starting to doubt the quality control especially in the 'new' touring equipment department. I have his resort board too which is a dream. Touring equipment should not break this much. I should not have to need to bring that many spare parts with me. I should be able to trust this stuff while skinning over a 2k' slide-on-my ass towards some rocks situations.
Is the booth worth 600 bucks? yeah probably, just budget for an extra 30 bucks to replace both boas with steel and buy two dedicated 28 and get that stuff in place prior to doing any serious tours.
Heavy but one of the best options

These boots are great and will last multiple seasons with out falling apart
