Is the technology obsolete now or do you think I'm all set? I hate to spend more money if the boots are still good for another season. Let me know. Thanks
RULE #1 - Upgrade your boots before upgrading your board/bindings.

Rule #2 - Don't break Rule #1.

Yes you should get new boots as boot technology has improve a lot in the last decade. If you boots were less than 3 years old or had les than 50 days, then you might be able to squeeze out another season.
