These are excellent boots. They take a few hours of riding to break in adequately, but once broken in they're a dream. I liked that they were heat molded to my feet, that made them comfortable even through the breaking in period. The liner lacing system does a great job of locking the heel and liner down to the boot, keeps the foot dry and warm. Even on sub-zero days, my feet have never been cold. These boots are extremely light and don't have a bulky feeling. Overall, awesome boot, plus they look sick
I have wide feet and other boots do not accomodate as well as 32. Bought these used and only had 1 day on them and I got them heat molded to my feet and I was golden for the rest of the season. I liked them so much, I bought another pair as a back-up
"Good fit, but wide and a bit longer than normal..."
The fit of the 32 Lashed is hard to explain. The issue with the fit is the inner lining. For some reason there is an odd amount of extra space where the heel is. I think the shape of the liner is made that the heel portion sits deeper than the normal foot shape. I have asked several friends to try it on and they had the same issue. Even when fully tightened, there is space behind the heel. The lining does however hug behind the ankle and calf, so there isn't any heel slip, which negates the space behind the heel. I did try to size down but my toes wouldnt fit comfortable into an 8.5, so I don't think that was the issue. This boot, I think is meant for people with wider feet, people with narrow feet will not have a good fit even when fully tightened because of the width of the sole. I would say it has a mid flex, forgiving enough for park laps but is definitely not a noodle and will be good enough for those who bomb down the mountain. Overall it is a great boot (2008) and very durable, rode this on and off from 2010 DC park boot, this is a bit stiffer, and probably about the same weight, but has a wider fit
