However, I do understand your point.... if there's one simple oversight like foot beds that are too long, then what else is going to be wrong. That IS a very simple QC oversight and does seem rather sloppy.

NIVEK- a side from your opinion on DC quality can you shed any light on the liner and if it does not have laces how that feels?

As far as amount of people riding the Thraxis the same could be said for the Status. Now... . try to get info on the Malamute and you could spend all day reading about peoples experience with them.
I just tried pulling out the liner from the Judges. Seems that the lace I mentioned is attached to a "sleeve" inside the outer boot. The liner fits into this sleeve and then you cinch up the lace on the sleeve. It feels the same as if the lace was attached directly to the liner IMO. As I mentioned, there is also a "power strap" attached to the liner at the very top which tightens the liner at that area. It all feels as good as my F20s.

Can't comment on the quality of DCs as I'm new to them. I don't see why they would be a crappy product but time will tell. Also, Per Nivek's comment, I replace the footbed in my boots with good quality aftermarket footbeds. They ARE worth the money.

Thanks for all your info. That pretty much answers the question... there are no missing laces...

So does your liner, when removed, look like the picture I posted? You mention a strap that wraps around the top of the liner. Would that look like this?

Exactly!
Your foot is held in quite securely as a result.

Awesome! ..... I feel a bit better now knowing there are laces in there. I would have never got the synapse in the first place had I known that.

Geeze.... I wish a shop near me had all the gear.

Thank again. Status boots on the way to me now. I'll let you all know how they work out!

First day on the slopes with the status boots. Amazingly I had no issues with the boots on my feet. No pressure point or sore spots. I was actually quite surprised. I did put in new foot soles and I broke them (the boots) in around the house, mostly on the treadmill, for a few hours.

They're stiff, a noticeable difference between my f22s, but not much. One thing I did notice was that walking on ice wasn't as pleasant as it was with my f22s. The sole of the boot is not as agressive. The boa stayed tight all day. I couldn't really judge how warm they we're because it was high 20s and sunny outside.

I'll need to put a few more days on them but it was better than a good start.

A perfect match to my diodes and billy goat.

Thanks for all the info. Hope this thread helps out other potential buyers. Feel free to ask me any questions.

Thanks for the follow up post.
Good to hear that you had no problems with the Status.
I bought them as well after again trying on the Judges I had and thinking I may want a stiffer boot for some days.

And I'm jealous as hell that you're riding already!
Enjoy!

So you got status also.... Cool.

We had opening day yesterday! Enough super wet powder to keep you down if your fell, and get face shots on a good shred. Pretty stoked. Had a great day.

The place is shredded to shit now, and it's been raining so......
