09 DC status boot

Any thoughts? Good purchase? I mostly ride all-mountain, but I'm startin to spend more time in the parks. I ride just about every saturday so I need a boot with solid endurance. If no Status, what would you suggest instead...?

You really need to try them on. I had the lower end DC Scout with single BOA, after only a few sessions they were packed out. After only a few runs I'd have too much wiggle room and efforts to tighten with the single BOA would result only in tightening in the wrong places causing painful pressure points. I was not happy with them at all. I just got a brand new pair of 2009 Deeluxe ID and I have much higher hopes...immediately the Deeluxe boots are noticeably better constructed with finer materials...but again this is in comparison with my lower end DC's.

If you like the BOA, I'd probably recommend the double BOA like the Status. I noticed the Ride Jackson (single BOA) even the lacing pattern had a better spread for better tightening distribution than my DC's. If I would've gone with the Ride Jackson or K2 Raider boots (both on the lower end of the BOA spectrum but better built than the DC in my opinion), I might not have had to replace boots so soon.

Doh! Brociety just had the Status for $149.99 and now it's closed.

The boots seem very much top of the line so I would take my comments with a double dose grain of salt since I only have the Scouts to go by.

The Status is INCREDIBLY stiff. I should know, I have a pair. They're practically ski boots. They're fucking great for balls out speed and serious carving, but not so hot for park where you'd want some flex.

I also have a pair of Cirros which are much more flexible and a good choice for a Focus Boa multi-purpose boot.

You wiill need to try out the boots in order to know if it fits you well. DC boots and Vans boots are not so great for wide foot (like myself). I can fit into K2 T1 DB much better

Currently own the 08 Judges (Boa) which are at the end of their life, and ordered the 09 Status last season online without trying them on (), and as mentioned above, they are VERY VERY stiff. I took out the hard plastic insert and they were still unbearable. Not a park boot in any sense of the phrase.
