Default Anyone know year-to year changes, Burton Moto

Just picked up a pair of leftover 2012 Burton Motos, and I was wondering if anyone knew what the changes were from 2012 to this year? I usually find info on The Good Ride, but it looks like the site is down right now (I'm not connecting to their CSS or database before timing out). Not really that important since I already bought them, just curious.

Side note; I bought them to replace some Ride Flights I bought last year. Turns out the goon that was 'helping' me at the shop put me in a boot size too big. I had a post or two about trouble with toe-side response last year; I'm betting the fact my boots were a half-size too big was the culprit...my heals refused to stay put. SO, traded them in towards Motos, and a $50 lesson learned. DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT THE 'PRO' SAYS. TRUST YOUR FEET.

I don't see any big difference. A lot of the time they just change the looks slightly, or come up with some ridiculous name for their "technology" that is only an extra bit of foam. If you don't immediately see any differences clearly advertised, most likely there weren't any because that stuff is always another big selling point they would stress. I think you'll be fine.

Doubt much. Motos are at the bottom of their line. They're a soft boot and they packed out very fast for me. I ventured into a lot of other brands and now back to Burton Ambush's. Much stiffer.
