Easy in and out with but with total comfort and control. The footprint reduction technology is excellent to allow for greater fit in bindings especially if your foot is larger than width of snowboard. Speed dial tightening and loosening of laces makes for easy adjustment all day long. Love this boot most comfortable pair I have had yet!
Worn them about 4 times.. My feet are constantly killing me. I can hear the boots making noises and loosening as I am carving down the mountain. Constantly have to tighten them, just about every time I put my boots into my bindings... Need a locking mechanism or something..
Overall I am happy with the product. The inner lining has a Velcro closure for a snug fit. The speed lacing is sweet. Only complaint is that it was not true to size. I wear a 9.5 size shoe and all my snowboard boots I have purchased over the years have been a size 10. I bought a size 10 and can barely get my foot into this boot and once its in there it is not comfortable. Frankly I think their "foot print reduction" technology is a crock because their claim of a size 9 print in a size 10 boot is because its not really a size 10.
Well designed boots but poorly sized. I originally bought size 9 (I wear 8.5 in standard street boots). They were very tight but House rep told me to wear them a while to break in/loosen them up. After two uses they were still painfully tight. As I then couldn't return them, I bought size 10 which are very comfortable. I will try to sell the first pair elsewhere. I'm new to snowboarding so I took the advice of a House rep and it ended up costing me additional $$$.
I am a Burton man. I have not tried these on, but I am hoping they fit right when I get them. The reviews and Q&A led me to believe that these are the right boots for me. I didn't want the BOA laces, but this was all they had in stock for my size, the color, and for the price.
Best Answer:The speed lace reminds me of a come-along strap... easy for adults but kids will struggle to get the boots tight enough with the speed lace alone. The BOA allows kids to really ratchet their boots tightly, without having a lot of strength. It also allows them to get their boots on and off quickly ( a + for parents).
