        Overall

        Love this boot!  Hurts so bad!  I find these boots give me incredible shinbang, and no i dont suck and land backseat all the time, it just happens and gel pads on the toe, i still get toebang and the boot fits perfectly.  Anyhoo, I still adore the boots, they look great, they are sooo light, I can change my flex depending on how im feeling and love the two inch strap.  I think once i break these boots in, theyll be even better

        Performance

        awesome, light and stiff and have never gotten cold feet.  phenomenal for landings unless you're in the backseet... these boots hurt me, but i love them

        Design

        Beauty looking, was never a fan of purple, now i don't care.
        Also has something new that i like, a clip on springs that closes and holds your saggy pants

        Value

        I guess the boot doesnt come out till next year for all the non pros..hhe but i got a pro deal through sportcheck and payed $250 CAD shipping/taxes in, and will be a 599 0r 699 dollar boot

        Fit

        Mouldable liner, super comfy, shock absorber insole then insole on top.  Gel pad on large toe, very thick tongue and high cushy backing.
        Vibram backing plates, and vibram soles on the outside, replaceable also if your riding alot of urban.
        2" booster strap very nice
        unique buckle system with micro

        Characteristics

        I find this boot to be quite stiffer than the salomon 1080 pros i was riding, but its nice, and the buckle system allows you to have very different settings for flex desires.

        I believe its a 120 flex






        Durability

        white..meh, the insides of my boot are starting to yellow, just like the old white boots you see some people sporting, other than that the boots are holding up much better than my k2 extremes are lol
