2011 atomic overloads?
has anyone ridden or tested the atomic overload boot? I tried them on at my shop, they are really wide and open in the foot, even for my thick ass feet (I have extremely flat feet) and are real comfy; no weird pressure points or awkward padding. they feel good now, I'm just wondering if they are like that teacher thats all nice on the first day then switches on bitch mode. also they feel suuuuper soft, if anyone has ridden them, are they too soft? I'm between these or spk's. let me know what you think, thanks.

all they are, is a 2 buckle version of the b-series boot. if you've got super wide feet they'll be ok. but remember, if they felt awesome in the store there's probably a good chance they won't feel so super after 3-4 days on snow. you boots should feel like they are almost restricting your blood flow when you first try them on.

The Overload last is kind of a hybrid between our 102, 104, and 100 last: it uses the narrow heel of the 100mm boot (Hawx), the big toe area of the 104 boot (B Tech) and the mid foot of the 102 boot (M Tech). It has less forward lean than our other boots too, so it is more upright.
There is only one flex for this year (90). Will it be too soft or stiff for you? Only your boot-fitter can tell you that.
I'm more interested in the Atomic 'The Volt', they look sooo gnarly and I really want them. Only problem is my feet. I'm not sure whether I'll fit them, really gotta try those! They're so rad. I also have this year's Punx, which makes the most awesome combi ever!
