Reviewed by: ToothlessWithTatoos ,  Intermediate , from Upstate, NY

Summary:
A servicable boot, but not worth full-price. I got it on close-out as part of a set with K2 Clicker HB bindings (total was $100).

Runs a size small: order a full size larger than you need. The foot-bed is a little hard & uneven; I suggest throwing away the insert that comes with it & replacing it with a high-quality gel insert with good arch support, available from most drug stores (Dr. Scholls, etc.).

It's a soft boot with a lace-up liner & ratchet strap; if your heel slips, its because you have the wrong size boot or don't have it adjusted properly. The decorative stitching makes this boot bulkier & heavier than it needs to be.

Manufacturing quality is not good. It came shipped with a right & left boot, but 2 right foot liners. The store shipped a replacement left foot liner. There was a lot of excess stitching material & glue inside that made the foot-bed lumpy. This contributed to foot discomfort my first time out. I've trimmed most of it out to make the foot-bed flatter.

It had good ankle support & positive control with no heel slippage, but by the end of the day my feet were in pain. The next time out I will have the lumps out of the foot-bed & better sole inserts. That should take care of it.
