TY Early Santa - DC Status Boa '12 received!

oh yeah, UPS guy inpersonated early santa and just dropped these at my door.

ordered them wednesday online via economic shipping ,didn't expect them to come until next tuesday and until yesterday it says expected delivery on Monday, and this morning it says out for delivery. UPS hands down!

I've gone through 5 pair of boots since I started this addiction 3 years ago,

from Salomon sports authority boots, burton hail, burton slx, k2 t1db and now these, I think I finally found the best boots for me.

while soft boots are good for learning, my preference is definitely stiff now. I just like the overall responsive feedback from the first contact layer and if I need forgiveness I'll go find in the bindings. It also gives me a more accurate feels of the rest of the equipments and let me enjoy what my bindings/boards has to offer with out getting muffled by the soft boots.

I really loved every aspect of my t1 db, but I always thought some marginal improvement was needed and hopefully I can reach out on the status.

will give more details in another review after trying them out.

stay tuned

Sweet! I got the same year and model but all black a couple of months ago. They fit great. Can't wait to use em. Quality seems very good. My board states it's out for delivery. Then I just need bindings and it's time to rip! Good luck with your new status.

thanks for being the first one answered,

which board and bindings you got/going to get?

I only had 1 day on them so far, they are really stiff and I look forward for them to break in.

Also a pair of good socks really helps, I had my low rise running pumas and it wasnt so comfy

I forgot to ask are you planning on buying insoles?

Weipim 12-14-2012 06:54 PM

I have a pair of red superfeet that are pretty worn out, but on the dc status i don't see that big of a need, they give a fairgood amount of support to my arch feet, a lot better than my k2 flats t1db

Rite on. Just wondering because it seems like a lot of people are rocking after market insoles now. Mine feel comfy but haven't ridden with em yet this year. Should be after xmas.

yeah I would say just get them from backcountry or rei so u have no hassle return if you didn't like the performance, they are kidna expensive for 30-50dollars especially if you don't need them that bad. If you do, then that's like the best thing you can buy.

btw which board u got?

Are the insoles that came in the boots heat moldable? Got a 2012 Ride Highlife UL.

JENKS 12-14-2012 07:20 PM

Ya I am pumped on these boots too! Seen the reviews on the board and just seems like it's gonna fit my preference of riding well. The suspense is killing me. Should be here any time. What are you riding?
