I bought the same boots about a week ago from Dogfunk but they'll have to wait a year since my local hills closed over the weekend and I didn't have time to go.
Totally agree on them being hard to get into. I loosened them up as much as possible and still had a hard time getting them on. As far as comfort level goes they feel about the same as my Burton SL-10's which surprised me a bit - I thought they'd feel a lot better. The fit is definitely better and I've felt no heel lift at all when wearing them around the house.
I also wear Flow's (NXT-FRX) and will definitely need to adjust them to fit. I'm pretty happy with my purchase and can't wait to use them next season.
These boots were a full size smaller than my normal shoe size.
