Why do you say that? Have you owned Ions? I've read posts in other threads by people saying they get 100 days of hard riding out of top tier boots. Thoughts?
I agree with ShredLife, I have never had a pair of boots (even top-end boots like Salomon Malamute, Nitro Select, etc) last me more than 2 seasons (roughly 70 days) - 32 brand boots lasted less than half that time (20-25 days) before they started to really get mushy. I'm only 150 lbs too.
