Default Deeluxe Boots

So I have been looking at some boots. The deeluxe spark xv.... I can't find any reliable reviews on them and am thinking of getting some jus to try them out. I like that they are "STIFF". Hell, I can't find any reviews at all.... I have only tried them on once about 3 years ago and they were comfortable in the store.

XDLR wears them so they likely don't suck since boots are highly personal and a guy like that doesn't wear shit(boards are one thing, boots and bindings in the terrain he frequents are another).

Burtonavenger or Nivek, do you guys have any info or have you tried them on?

This is the first one I found!

But this one looks like a better review.

Didn't I see JJ in "Higher" movie wearing these?


-edit-
An even older review of the boots from one of our very own!

check out splitboarding.com to find feedback. they're a boot built for bc.

i've got the first iteration of the boot.. not sure how they've changed it fron the first year... thru the arch and along the footbed they're kind of a brick. very little/no flex. the cuff/upper is easier to ride with loose than cranked down. if you cranked in there you could make em ski boots. just like any boot how they fit your foot is subjective, i had some pressure points.

for me the only upside is the legit sole. wasn't enough to keep me wearing them. i still have them tho.

Not sure XDLR is the best guy to take boot advice from.

French big mountain freerider Xavier de le Rue talks speed - X Games

How important is your equipment, especially the stiffness of your set-up when you start hitting terminal velocity?
"You will not believe me but when I ride I barely close my boots. And my board, although long when I hit big lines (167), isn't stiff at all. It's funny that everyone thinks that big speed and big jumps mean stiff boots and board. Whenever I ride new gear, especially the boots, it really takes me a while before I can feel comfortable. The stiffness makes me lose a lot of my feeling under the feet."


Dude is an insanely ridiculous rider, but not sure that would work for most other people.

Shred, yours are double pull string or triple?

I ordered the spark from last year, they are relatively inexpensive right now. All those reviews looked good, thanks chomps.

mine have one speedlace for the liner, and the shell has a separate speedlace for the cuff and for the instep. a grand total of three on each boot, two on each shell.

I tired them once and it was the first gen, and they were massive boots. IMO. Very well could have changed. A similar pair to those would be the Salomon Malamutes. I've had two pairs of them. Way stiff.
