Either that, or you've been spending too much time on your knees throughout your life. I'd guess the latter.
Btw, I love all your "claimz". $400 boots? Cool dude. No one cares lol.
If we're comparing binding dampening then the quality of the boot is absolutely relevant. Assuming a $400 dollar boot is going to have quality dampening, then you can hold all variables but the binding constant and make a comparative judgement.
But I suppose that gets in the way of a good ribbing.
