Love these boots! Amazingly fast put on/adjustment - even in the middle of a run - can't get any better on that. Harshmellow is nice & cushy, landings are never an issue with these on. great traction on most any terrain found on mountain, outside of sheet ice. While I agree with the previous reviewer on the stiffness issue, its never been an issue for me - I cinch them up in the morning & have no issues all day riding resort, groomers, forays into the park and some backcountry/glades runs. I have always had stiff boots so I guess its not an issue to me, but I love the response of these boots - immediate transfer to your bindings. If you're expecting these to feel like cushy boots, you'll be dissappointed, but you want a responsive, easy to use, great feeling boot - you'll love these!
Feels true to size
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Such a great boot, perfect fit, Harshmellow sole is wonderful, Boa fit is incredible. But this boot is way stiffer than I imagined. Do not buy for any other riding than big mountain powder. They will not break in or soften up. These will tear your legs up at a day on the resort or groomers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
