do they still have the problem with the laces ripping at the ankle straps?
its been hard to find reviews on these boots and the most talked about thing for them is for the laces ripping. however those threads were all from around 2009...
I have that on my boots with the metal tube by the ankle. I haven't put that many days on mine at this point as the last couple of seasons have been off years for me due to a lingering back issue but I personally haven't had to deal with it. They did address it in the newer models with the SL lacing system though. I believe they use plastic now and changed the way they're routed through it so it doesn't wear unnecessarily.
The Dialogue's are nice also, so if those are the one's you're able to try on and know that they fit right then by all means go for it.
