Fukin Focus Boa Boots!

I got a new pair of thirtytwo focus boa boots and finally the mountain i live near opened this weekend. Went there Saturday and Sunday and rode all day. When I went to take my boots off Sunday night the boa lace on the bottom right boot wouldn't release enough to get my foot out. The dial will tighten it but for some reason it only releases to a certain point which happens to be not very much slack. After about 20 minutes of and a few of my friends helping me we were finally able to get my boot off my foot. Called Ski Company in Syracuse NY today, which is where I bought them, and they were very helpful. Offered to let me exchange them but unfortunately they didn't have my size. So I called thirtytwo but their damn warranty department doesn't actually answer a phone. You have to leave a message and they will return your call in the order it was received. THOSE BASTARDS!!!!! Greek is finally open and now I can't go because I can't get my damn foot into my boot. Also I will be pissed if they try to make me send them my boots and then they will send me new ones. That means at least another two weeks of no riding. Shitty way to start the season.

i was so tentative to buy boa boots because i was affraid of something like this. but, i talked to people that had some and to a few guys at my local shop and they all said that they are solid. turns out they weren't. one reason i went with the thirty two's is because they are light. riding a k2 zero i wanted light everything. these boa boots always have this problem?

ya 32's turn to rags faster than most boots. why do you think their warranty department didnt picked up. They are so busy taking care of everyone else. if you want light get some Salomon F22's
