Celsius Cirrus or Opus 7? Better than Burton Imperials?
I have been considering buying Burton Imperials or Raptors but have now come across celsius? How are thEIR boots? Made to last? High/Low quality? Burton over Celsius? Also, I fit a 9 in Burton Raptors, will either of the celsius boots have the same fit? Thanks guys!

I had the Imperial last year (and the Ion this year). I'm not a Burton fan, but they're just that comfy and solid, albeit somewhat pricey. Haven't had a chance to try Celsius boots yet, so I can't really comment other than regurgitating what I've read, which is that they're great too.

What is your opinion about the imperial vs the ion?

I have the Celsius Cirrus boots. This is my second season with them and they hold up great, as well as being super comfortable.

I tried Celsius Xenon, and they had the same fit (size-wise) than the Burton TWC(which I finally bought).

The overall fit was almost the same (really hesitated between the 2, actually) but the Burton were a bit more comfortable for my feet.

They look well made. If you go traditional lace, they have the lace lock which is really cool.

I have rode the cirrus for the past year and 1/2, i believe it is the most uncomfortable boot I have had in eleven years of riding! It had numerous hot spots, took forever to break in and still hurts my feet during the day. in the year and 1/2 of use (probably about 50 days) stitching and the black flap is coming apart as well as the sole is well worn. May be just me but I didn't love these boots and will not go near Celius again

I enjoy my Cirrus. Definitely a stiffer boot and takes a little longer to break in. Haven't had any pressure points or anything. Overall I have been happy with them.
