I've ridden the Nitro Selects and they are a great boot. They really hold my ankle in. The adjustable tongue stiffener lets me adjust the the feel of the boots for park or freeriding.
That being said, the boot fits my narrow heel, wide toe foot. It may not fit your foot (I found Burton boots to be too wide for my feet). If you have always "cranked" down on your laces... your boots are probably too wide. With my Nitro I just need to make the lace just snug tight.
Thanks for sharing that
Was wondering about the TLS, does it stay locked all day or you need to re tighten after few rounds?
