I read the reviews on the internet and went to the shop to check them out. They fitted me perfectly. I love the tightening system. My last pair of boots were oldskool Northwaves. I Used those a lot and always loved wearing them. That's why I wanted to stick to this brand.
What I noticed, is how comfortable these boots fit. Without gaps or spaces.
On the side of the boots, you have suede pockets that are really flat. This is for putting in the handles for tightning. first you tighten the inner boot with a genius strap system and velcro to keep the laces in place and you tighten the outside boot with two separate handles which stay perfectly in place for hours with yet another genius system.
on top of that you get a good warranty. That's also why I like northwave, good customer service.
I'm sure these boots will give me everything I need in the snow.
On top of that, I got them for only 166 euros (225 dollar?). best buy ever.
