I have an older pair, and they are comfortable as hell. As in, I can wear them all day on the mountain, all night in town. They aren't stupid soft either. They being "Shaun White" boots is no reflection of his style of riding, it's just marketing. I've strapped these into a few different powder sticks with a number of bindings, and I've had no problem with their performance of piste.

One thing I can say, is that the toe-box is so comfortable it literally feels like it sucks my toes in, and gives them the perfect amount of wiggle room. The trad. laces are crucial for me, because I don't like to tighten [crank] my laces every time I get on the lift. Laces give you more control over the tightness of your zones IMO, and there are a number of lacing patterns you can use. But then again, I'm not big on over-engineered, sensitive tech like BOA and CST. These are legit boots if you can stomach the SW marketing. I for one could give a fuck if they were the Jonas Bros. edition, if the boot fits wear it.
