This is my second season on these boots. I tried on a lot of different boots until I found these. I wanted a stiff boot because I like to feel the terrain and ski interaction. I have skied a lot of demo equipment where the boots felt more like hiking boots. But with these, your subtle leg movements are transferred to the skis for wonderful control. I went with a performance fit which is a size smaller than my measured foot and I replaced the factory foot bed with a custom one. They fit incredibly snug with out any discomfort. I wear a Smart Wool sock and my feet stay warm, sometimes to warm when I ski hard. I love these boots and can wear them all day with out having to unbuckle them. Besides being an incredibly comfortable, warm and snug these boots look great!
