This boot is awesome, went from having Burton boots forever to these 32's. Way more comfortable than previous boots, mid flex remains soft but still quite supportive. Trad lacing is a plus, never been a fan of boa's or speed lacing, can get them laced really tight from the beginning, and after about one run they feel perfect. A+ for style too, these boots look pretty nice. All around I give these boots an A+ especially at the price point they're in!
