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.
- 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
- My foot fits in it nice and snug and I still have pretty major heel lift even with the extra inserts in
- The liner lacing lock sucks, it's super flimsy and doesn't stay put.
- 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.
