I'm on my second year with the Ride Jacksons. I ride all-mountain and park mostly, so I need something that's middle of the road. I'm not a big fan of softer boots, I like the response from stiffer boots - the Jackson's rate a 7 or 8 on Ride's scale (10 being most stiff).
I have terrible feet (flat footed, ankle problems, etc) and love these boots. It took me a while to get used to the Boa system - I usually adjust it two or three times throughout the day but honestly, this isn't a huge deal as its so easy to adjust. Otherwise, excellent boot - responsive as heck but I can still tweak and get buttery when I need to.
