Advantages: Comfort, speed lacing, nice design
These are the first snowboarding boots I have bought. I purchased them on the 06/01/07. I paid £120, but lucky I had a £30 voucher so got them cheaper. Purchased them from snow and rock, one of the UKs leading out door specialists.
These boots offer a lot of comfort, they have too. You are in them for about 7-8 hours a day when you go snowboarding. Burton technology has changed a lot; they have on most of them "speadzone lacing". Instead of having laces, you have two pulls, the idea is when they boots start to loose up, you just give these a pull and they tighten the boots for you. They work really well. One is for the bottom, over the toes, and the other is for the top around the ankle area.
These boots are designed for beginners as they have a soft flex. This means they are softer, the higher the flex the more responsive they are. When you are a beginner you donít want this. As with every movement you make, it will be felt in the boot and your boot will move in that direction. (This might sound strange, but itís your feet that controls the board) So soft boots allows you to control foot movements to you purposely make.
These are a fantastic pair of boots for beginners that are not expensive at all. I would recommend going to a shop see if they fit, as all boots have different fits and feels. Some have a wider ankle hold, others have narrow foot hold.
Summary: Good boot for advancing in your game.
