I see they already ended...did you buy them?

my experince with switch step-in wasn't too bad. You need the proprietary boots to go with them, which may be hard to find

The system can be quick and easy to get in and out...except in decent snow, when ice gets caked around the metal hooks and you have to dig it out every time you get back on the board

the control and response of strap bindings will soon outweigh the 'convenience' and cost of step-in. i'd say avoid them and look for a decent strap set up.

Honestly when you have to clear out the snow in the step ins they really don't become much, if any quicker than straps.

true...but I frequently have ice buildup in my standard strap bindings, too. Fortunately, in order to still ride them, clearing it out every time in straps is an option rather than a requirement.

idk, those step-ins sold for $10.99 shipped. I see the required boots were going for about $45 shipped, so, depending on the deck, a brand new total package could be economical for a beginner.
