2012 vs 2013 DC Status
this is my first post but I have been a long time reader (there is a lot of great information to learn on this site!)
Now I'll start off by saying I am in no way asking you guys which boot is best for me (I have read enough forums to know what kind of answers to expect to that ha ha). I finally decided to upgrade my snowboard boots this year and after a lot searching I fell in love with the DC Status boots and I was able to get a pretty decent deal on a pair of the 2012 model to save me some money (being a broke college student and all). Well now, thanks to whiskymilitia.com, I was able to get a pair of the 2013's for $170 and once shipping is all said and done it will be roughly the same cost as my 2012's.
So what I'm getting at, is there much or any difference between the 2012 and 2013 models? The only thing I could find was the protective U bar around the outside boa and the better color scheme. Is there any other benefits that anyone knows of that would make it worth the hassle of returning my other ones and waiting another two weeks for these?
All help/input will be greatly appreciated and if this was a stupid question I apologize for wasting your time!
