Bought a pair of Northwaves 6 years ago and am still rocking them. I have never worn anything else and just recently started looking at new boots. I have since determined that northwaves, or at least mine are super soft compared to current boots. It will be a big adjustment when I finally upgrade. From what I can tell though, they are quite durable, very soft, and just fine in the waterproof/coldproof dept. Probably not the best, but they will suffice if its all you can get.

I'm so happy with my Northwave Decade SL 08/09! Super comfy and durable.

I have 2009 Northwave Legend SL2, still the best boot I have stepped into for me. Very comfortable and Speed Lacing system is really good. A must try...

I would go for their 2009 and up... though...

I've got a pair of Northwave Fives. Very comfy and still pretty stiff after 3 seasons. They do pack out though in the first month.

Not overly impressed with their CS though. Buddy said he was mailing replacement clips for the liner lace twice before Xmas....nothing.

Great boots, horrible customer service. Took me a bunch of emails and almost a month to get replacement speed laces.


The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.

^ Agreed! I had a similar experience but gave up getting replacement speed laces and just sent the boots back and bought some new ones!

unfortunately i would have to agree as well. although i had much better luck calling...they never responded to my emails. as soon as i bought the boots i wanted to get replacement laces for backups. after 50ish days riding i'm still using the original laces and they looks good.

I got my decades from brociety and they're great. Maybe I should ask for extra laces now for next season. Before these I had a set of Jeremy Jones from early 2000 that are still holding up great. Best boots for my wide feet.
