Default Anyone own Celsius CLS9 boots? I'm pretty unimpressed

UPS just dropped them off today. I picked these boots because they're supposedly very breathable and good for riders with ankle pressure points. I couldn't find much info on them so I took a gamble (well it's backcountry.com so I can return them). While they do fit pretty well (wearing them around my house and strapped in in my living room), they seem fairly low end.
  1. The lower 1/2 lacing system sucks. I can't get them to pull tight at all. If I put slack in all the loops and try to pull tight, the bottom loops don't even budge
  2. My foot fits in it nice and snug and I still have pretty major heel lift even with the extra inserts in
  3. The liner lacing lock sucks, it's super flimsy and doesn't stay put.
  4. They're fairly heavy, about 2.75 lbs

I'm now on my 3rd boot of the year, first was Burton Rulers (I was in between sizes, had some toe curling but width was perfect), 32 Focus Boa (aggravated every pressure point I had but had awesome heel hold), and these. I'm not opposed to sending them back, but I hate blindly buying boots like this. My local shops only have a small number of boots and because I'm a common size, sell out of them quick.

So does anyone have any recommendations on these CLS9s? I can deal with the weight and the lower lacing system sucking, but the other two are pretty bad.

Your fault.

How about you find a boot that fits, and go from there.

1. Most boots bottom laces nearest the toe don't pull tight...you have to make sure you tighten them individually especially while the boot is new and stiff.
2. The boot is generally wide...probably doesn't fit your foot.
3. Yes the Lace lock sucks...one of the major reasons I didn't buy them.
4. 2.5-3 lbs is about what boots weigh

Def send them back. It's extremely hard to find a good boot and it's tempting with all the deals going on to buy something but ultamately not every boot is for you. I had to resist last season and shopped around this year when shops started getting stocked. I narrowed it down to 4 boots (Celsius Climate being one of them) and waited until they went on sale in Feb. Ended up finding the Vans Andreas Wiig II for $99 at EMS (reg price $250) If you want the right boot at a low price I'd suggest you do the same. It'll save you a lot of hassle sending stuff back through the mail.
