That said, I really like my Ride Deltas (now known as the Rodeo) and for what it's worth I think Ride's toe-straps are among the best in the biz in terms of comfort & fit.
i almost bought some Ride's last year but two things:

I kept hearing about ratchets sticking. I can deal with that, but after having butter (burton and raiden) I kind of got turned off.

Toe straps tearing. The one I was looking at was the neoprene/rubber mesh toe straps. Look like they would mold perfectly to the boot, but I heard about durability problems.

Don't know if these two concerns were warranted.
