The STW Boa boots are ideal for beginning all-mountain riders and freestyle and urban shredders looking for a solid boot that doesn't cost too much. The STW features plenty of tech to keep you comfy on the hill, like a lightweight evolution foam outsole that provides excellent cushioning, the iconic Boa lacing system, and Thirtytwo's heat-moldable comfort liner for a precise fit.

Boa Closure System - The Boa Closure System delivers a fit that hugs your feet and is backed by an ironclad lifetime guarantee, Boa proves that high performance and superb comfort can co-exist.
STI Evolution Foam Outsole - Designed at STI (eS, Emerica, Etnies) this foam provides better cushioning than traditional foam materials and dramatically reduces the weight of their boots by eliminating the need for a heavy rubber outsole.
1:1 True Fit Outsole - Creating true half-sizes is another huge step in achieving the best fitting boots in the snowboard market. Test it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
3D Molded Tongue - ThirtyTwo's 3D Molded Tongues wrap your foot for easier lacing, an even flex, and improved fit and heel hold.
Comfort Liner - Heat moldable, dual-density foam and fleece lining for comfort with a focus on performance.
Comfort Footbed - Die-cut flat sheet EVA with a sherpa top sheet for warmth and comfort.
Comfort Internal Harness - Grip and Rip heel hold and a Velcro® heel overlay to prevent heel slippage.
Internal Liner Lacing System - ThirtyTwo's Inner cuff Lacing System can easily be tightened with a single pull. This will keep the laces secure and the anatomical shape will keep your heel down.
The boot is really comfortable. Easy to adjust, pop the ratchet tightener when getting on a lift to increase the comfort level, and tighten when you get to the top. No unlacing and retying... awesome. The boot looks really cool, as well.
The cables can get stuck on themselves if the cable isn't kept tight while tightening the boot. Which results in having to remove the whole ratchet system in order to get the boot off. It's a softer boot, so when leaning forward it tends crease or fold over on itself, causing some pressure points. The stitching around the cable eyelets has started to fray after just a couple days of use. The liner is not as supportive as it should be.
I do really like the boots and would recommend them to anyone.
