GOOOD THING YOU DIDNT GO WITH THE INSANO's!!! I bought a pair of them 2 months ago because I needed something quick b/c my boot broke on a trip. I put the insanos on in the store and they were one of the most comfortable boots they had, I was looking for something with a mid flex also , something to hit the park and have flex but still have the response I needed for bombing steeps. they seemed like they were the ones so I bought them, but after about only 4 runs with them I was done, 1- it felt like a freakin ski boot, 2- it the boa system on that specific boot sux, the bottom will be extremely tight and the top will be soo loose you can fit two hands in there, 3- not that serious but the traction was horrible i was slipping all over the place when not strapped in, 4- and the worst thing was the liner, the geniuses at ride decided to make the clip that tightens the liner as big as a freakin cell phone and it locks onto the liner right in the middle of the front of your ankle which felt horrible after only one run. I actually had to totally loosen the liner and hang that clip completely outside the boot. bottom line is these boots SUCK!!!!!!!!
I went with a pair of the DC judges and couldnt be happier, I was also looking at the rulers tho, not a bad boot alot off cushion, felt really soft , and I dont like there lacing system, focus boa's where its at. <for me at least. good luck with the rulers tho, my boy loves his.

NYinfamous2k2 - You summed up my fears of the Insanos! I was really worried the BOA would be crap on them and I read a few reviews similar to what you said. Too tight on the bottom while the top isn't quite snug enough.

I did like the way the Rulers felt in the store and the lacing system seemed pretty solid. I was kinda hoping for BOA focus boots of some kind but there isn't any local shops that have them to try on and they were just a tad more than I was willing to spend w/o trying them on my foot. That and can't ride a whole lot atm. Plan to ride more often next season but even then at most it'll be once a week.

you shouldnt have any problems with the rulers they are some of the most comfy boots out IMO, it was just a bit on the soft side for my style riding, and the lacing system on them IS good, but I got spoiled with the boa system a few years back and now anything else just seems like alot of work lol yea im lazy.
