I have ThirtyTwo STW Boa's. It was pretty impressive to throw them on the Capos. Despite being a size 12, the footprint was the same size as the Ride Hi-Phy's in a size 10.5 (which was the other boot I liked). You gotta give it to ThirtyTwo--all they make is boots and you can tell they do a great job at it. Since the ThirtyTwo's were more comfortable and a bit softer overall, I went with them. The reduced footprint was a huge bonus though because it allowed me to stay on the SL (instead of going with the mid-wide Legacy) since I had little to no toe overhang. I realize the boot is a bit softer despite the binding being on the harder/stiffer side of things, but they were the most comfortable of the bunch compared, so I went with it. Now we just need some snow in Ohio so I can put them to the test!
