    Posted: Jan/09/2012 at 10:18pm
What do you guys think of these boots? The reviews on the item doesn't really convince me on buying these boots. they're like the only boots for sale rated 1-10 for my size.

Thirty Two Prion Boots 2011
Need better reviews.. not convincing enough to buy.

DC Judge BOA Snowboard Boots Men's 2011
I've had BOA boots before.. they always came loose after 3-4 runs and i would have to tighten them up again. also i noticed that during the middle of the season the lace of the boot was very uneven. like when i tighten them up it would favorite the right side of the lace more than the left.

Have you tried on either pair of the boots that you have listed? The fit is going to be one of the most important aspects of the boot you buy.

I'd go try them on instead of purchasing it based off of the reviews.

Okay, the obvious choice to me in the DC judge. Reason being, these boots are not even the same price point category. From ThirtTwo, you want to look at either the STW BOA ($160) or Lashed ($200), thats if we are talking current price. If we are talking retail, TMTwo ($250). I am simply saying, you need to compare boots on the same level. For example, a burton moto is not the same as the burton hail

I've just got the 32 STW BOA... love them.

I had DC's before but the fit was terrible for me... ended up returning.

Go try them on in a store before you buy them off here

The Prion is a more or less intro boot (comprable to Burton Moto and the like).  It is a popular "package boot."   It is much softer than the Judge.  

This is another way of saying: these two boots aren't even close.  It's impossible to say one or the other without knowing way more about what you like to ride.
