32s are really nice at first, but infamous for breaking down and packing out like woa...they are extremely light which is good, and comfy..my buddy got his last season, 08 model, rode them about 10-12 days and still loves em..
32 Lashed are very stiff when you first get them. I have the Bling white/chrome from a few years back that I have been rocking since they came out. Incredibly flexy now. I have over 100+ days riding in them so they have lasted me. Don't let how stiff they are in the shop detour you, they are extremely comfortable. They are great park boots and a majority of people that ride with me and at my local spot rock Lashed boots. I just picked up the new shop exclusives, ThirtyTwo Lashed Boot | Men's Boots | Boots | Darkside Snowboard Shop, the grey, purple, and yellow ones. They were stiff at first but after wearing them around the house and at the shop I work out, they are loosening up nicely.
haha ok ya i was kindof hoping they would break in and stay that way but it doesnt sound like it?
i do a lot of hiking so i like that they are light and im used to my old boots which are heavy and very soft
32 boots are great boots. My Lashed didnt turn to mush that quick. actually they were pretty stiff all the way through out the season and I went 40+ times. I did lose a rivet but it didnt affect anything, and I emailed 32, yes it took 5 months and 3 emails, but they finally got back to me and exchanged my boots for brand new 09 32 lashed.
