- Q & A
Comfortable and warm!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've only gotten the opportunity to use these twice so far this season, but comparing them to my old Burton Moto's.... they're amazing. The boa technology is super convenient, I never had any issue with the top or bottom being uncomfortably tight or loose. The toe is more pointed and a little less profile, so I had to adjust my binding to make that strap a little tighter.
Heads up for sizing: I usually wear a women's 10, I fit in the men's 9.5 comfortably. The 9 had my toes in pain.
Great Boot, great technology
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought these as a gift for my Fiance and this is what he said, "I love these boots! These are the best snowboarding boots I have owned and the Boa technology is a game changer. I love how easy these boots are to slip in and tighten even with one hand. No wiggle room, snug fit I would recommend to size up a half size if you are going to be wearing these boots with wool socks. Overall I am extremely happy I received these boots!"
