Hey guy's, this is something I don't generally do, product review but I have been so impress with these thought I would share for those in the market.
Last season I permanently filed my FXR Backshift Boa, worn out they had seen better days.
So figured I would try these for the type of riding I generally do.
Developed for the snowbiker these transition extremely well for aggressive sledders who demand that extra ankle support and shin protection, similar to moto boots but for snow. Hanging off an aggressive board on the tip of your toes is so nice with these, board transitions is almost inspiring. No more shin guards needed or worry about stitches because of a bad dismount.
If you like getting vertical and dancing with your iron you need to check these out.

Boa knob on the back is nice. My Tobes have them on the front and they take a beating.

Curious to hear your long term review Mike.

How are the soles. Klim has terrible soles I revert to windshield urethane to keep my boots together with homage soles. And how is warmth.
Was out in the extreme last week couple times and my feet were fine, not going to say they were warm and toasty cause that's BS but I did not have cold feet.
They did change the sole of the boot, they are Michelin rubber soles. Even has the Michelin logo molded in them.
Longevity, don't know but great on the boards and walking is good.

PS if you click on the first pic and enlarge it you can see the Michelin logo in white along the sole.

I really want to try those boots but with my knee brace they just don’t work, too tall
