IMO the best boots I have ever owned. The rubber toe piece prevents any toe bang. You seriously don't get any of it. The footbed has really comfortable padding and absorbs most hard landings. As long as the boot is buckled you shouldn't get shin bang. Just a really good boot.
Purchased the SPK Pros back in '12.
Great boots for pretty much anything, although their upright stance tends to target the park more than anything else, but I use them for everything - groomers, park, pow, etc...
I have not taken the time to have these boots molded (which if I remember is just in the heel). I do notice a slight bit of pressure in my heel at the end of a long day. This can easily be fixed with some slight alterations.
The boots fit like a bucket which is perfect for my wide feet. If your feet fit comfortably in FT's, there is no way these boots will be a good fit for you.
If you have hobbit feet, this may be a great alternative for a park native boot.
Quality wise they are great. I have one buckle that's starting to show some side-to-side play, but it doesn't effect the ability to clamp.
If you carry your boots extensively by the straps, expect the straps to fall off the rivets. This happened on my prior '08s. I've done my best to avoid doing so with my Pro's.
The lace loops in the liner also tend to wear through. This happened with my '08s, but not yet my Pros.
Style is pretty awesome. Very minimalist in their approach. Getting in and out is very quick and easy to do. The soft toe box, heel padding, spoiler, and gel inserts on the tongue are heaven for landing backseat. I have yet to smash a toe nail or get excessive shin bang from a poor landing.
