I just picked these up at my local shop yesterday. They are a huge upgrade from my previous boots which are thrashed to **** from the 4 years I had worn them.
I did not pick up the 2011 model because there was a much better deal for the 2010 model and there isn't much difference between the two.
In my opinion the 2010 model has a much cleaner and better look than the 2011 model. It does not look nearly as bulky and the colorways are a lot nicer.
The boot is a mid flex. It feels soft enough to handle anything in the park and just stiff enough to shred pow. The articulating cuff is a very nice feature as it allows you to flex a bit more naturally.
One of the best liners I have seen in a snowboarding boot. It has the thermal foam which you can heat to mold your foot if you want. You will not need to wear thick socks with these boots. The foam reacts to your body temp and heats up when wearing the boot. My feet were toasty warm within 30 seconds of wearing them. The nice thing about the liner is that the lacing system is not incorporated into it. the lacing system is on the outside which provides a lot more stability around the ankle.
This boot fits true to size. I wear a size 13 shoe and I bought a size 13 boot. The boot feels a bit wide around the arches of my foot, I like this because it provides my foot with a bit of breathing room so I wont get too uncomfortable.
Right now I give this boot an overall 8/10. I cannot wait to try this boot out on the hill. I got a great deal on this boot for $180 marked down from $300.
Post up if you have any questions or you would like to share your thoughts about the lashed boot.
