I've been riding DC Judge boots for the last three years because of an insane discount through a friend and this year went with the Status. The Status is super stiff and a high-end boot with great heel hold. I'm concerned that this will change because I had great heel hold out of the box with the Judge boots and these appear to have the same liner - which packs out fast.
I have a pair of Nitro Team SLS boots (speed lace) which have superb heel hold. They have a Thermacell liner with an EVA foam outsole and they're super plush and warm. I wear them occasionally but the liner is a little too tall for me. I have big calves and shorter legs and the back of the liner bites a little too much for me. Bottom line: best liner I have experienced (except for the height).
