After watching my kids get in out out of their boots so quickly I thought I would upgrade to a BOA type boot. These are very light and comfortable. They are stiffer than my old boot which is good. My only issue is the twist mechanism for the laces does not lock. On other boots I have seen this ratchet closed and stay tight. These loosen as you ride forcing you to constantly keep tightening. There is a quick release to exit the boot which is nice.
These boots are a breeze to get in and out of. Really appreciating the functionality and comfort from these pair of boots. I purchased a size 10 and I usually wear 9.5 and 10 shoe depending on the brand. Boots fit well.
I bought these for my son and he really liked them. He says they are very comfortable and fit true to size. The only reason I didn't give them a higher rating was because on of the laces broke the first time he used them.
Best Answer:I would not recommend these boots. The sizing is about average I wear a 12 and size 12 in those boots fit fine. However, the boots are poorly made.they do not stay tight and After riding in them for 2 days the laces broke and replacements were very pricey so I sent them back. Hope this helps
What is footprint reduction technology - can I ride a regular board with a size 12?

Best Answer:The Burton Jet Snowboard Boot is a great boot, but it can't work miracles. But you may be in luck. A 12 will have the footprint of an 11 and this may allow you to ride a regular board...the Footprint Reduction means that Burton has gone and shrunken their boots to a size lower, while still giving you your perfect fit. Basically it means that if you were to buy a size 10, it still fits like a 10, but it has the footprint of a size 9. This is great for cutting down on toe snags and just adding more overall board control.
Hey Roy, I'm an more of an advanced rider myself and I am interested in these boots, but I have seen multiple descriptions of the Burton jet saying that it is a beginners boot, is there a similar boot I could find that is more for the advanced rider with boa/dial up technology for a the same/lower price?
First of all the Boot does not make the rider...that being said you want something that responds to your riding style. A combination of low price with convenient lace and high(er) performance is a bit of a tall order. Try looking at the Ruler, the Moto or the Raptor. These all have the aspects that you are looking for...the Raptor more than the other. Hope this helps.
