Nice boots, great style and color. I was looking to switch from my old Burton Mints and I wanted standard laces. Comfortable when I first put them on but after a while my toes went numb and it didn't get better as I wore them around the house. Too bad because I loved the boots and the quality was very good. Decided to send them back rather than take the chance that I would hate them after 1 day of riding. Something also was pushing on the top of my foot, not sure if it was some part of the Therm-ic wires or just my feet. I bought 32 Lashed boots instead and the fit was so much better for me. FYI, I wear an 8 in both Burton and 32 in case you are looking to try another brand.
