I've been using the cheapest of the cheap, aka the Burton Motos for two seasons now and I'm totally happy. Haven't loosened up on me at all and have overall been workin great. I think Burton's speed lacing system is terrific, I'm in and out quicker than ever and they're lighter than my other boots. And if I need to make adjustments on the mountain its easy because I don't even need to take off my gloves, just a quick pull forward, up, lock, and I'm done.
On the flipside, I know some jackasses who've cut the cables in the lower zone with the edge of the board (by resting their board on their boot when on lift) and subsequently had to tape their motos and now claim that the boots suck...But I think thats them just being retarded..Also heard of people trying to tighten while its in the locked position so duh, its going to break.
I think if you take minimal maintance of the Motos they will hold up pretty well and the speed lacing will rid the annoyance of tieing laces.
