I bought these boots at an extremely low price on line after trying on over 20+ pairs in several shops. To be honest, I could not be happier. This boot is a no non-sense performer that won't break the bank. Better yet, for those suffering from elephantitis like me and have feet as wide as the Grand Canyon, look no further. These boots provide exceptional comfort, ease of use and pack out beautifully. I have no pinching, binding or pressure on these bohemeth feet of mine. In addition to their wide profile, they have great heel cups and I have not suffered any slippage whatsoever. The flexibility is awesome and this boot can go anywhere.
Now to the negatives: The wide profile causes compatibility concerns with some bindings, specifically Union Contacts which are a very tight fit. The nylon exterior suffers from some fraying along the toe box, created by the board edge resting on top of the boot while on the lift. This model also did not offer a heat molded liner nor is it the warmest boot on the market. However, I have never had any dampness issues and have rode this boot 5 straight days on the Ice Coast in very wet conditions. A must for the financially conservative!
