old thread revival here...

i just picked up the 580 double boas over labor day at a shop in Big Bear, CA. marked down to 99! couldnt believe the fit. the fit much like their sneakers in size and are super comfortable. i put em on and played with the kids outside for like 4 hours and almost forgot i was wearing snow boots. i havent ridden them yet, as nothing near me is open yet. feels like a good stiff boot though. thats what i was hoping for. my DCs packed out way too much and are too loose, plus have numerous "hot spots" or pressure points. they made my feet ache until they went numb. not a good combo for freeriding! or any type of riding for that matter.

if i remember, i will come back and update with my thoughts on the boots. the wife finally let me get a season pass this year, so really hoping for a good winter to put em through the paces; no pun intended.
