Looking for boot feedback: DC Travis Price Status 2012, Salomon F4.0. Reviews?

Just ordered the DC's. I think I will order the the Salomons also and just keep whatever seems more comfortable even though that can be difficult to do without actually riding in them. One concern I have is shock absorption. I'm a 46 year old rider, need as much cushion as possible. Seems like the Salomon's are rated better in this department.

Any and all info in appreciated!!!

I remember when I was looking for boots seeing a lot of people saying DC boots aren't very waterproof. So you might want to stay away from DC. If you are wondering, I went the the thirtytwo binary boa.

I have a pair of 2013 K2 UFO's. I had such a hard time finding a fantastic boot, that I may pick up another pair if they go on sale later this year. They are the most fantastic boot ever. I swear I could ride all day and then hike 20km back to the parking lot without any discomfort.

I haven't tried the ufo but i've come this close to order a pair and within a few blinks of my eyes they went away...

so then I decide to get the dc status boa.

the good side of K2 is that they are extremely comfortable, although its bulky build can be a bitch with some toe straps.

the DC has a better shape, kinda closer to my slx, but way more comfortable and best heel hold ever; that's what it matters to me after going through 5 pairs of different boots.

anyway, UFO and Status boa are the best stiff boots in the market in my opinion

I have 2 full days on my 12 status boots and never had any foot comfort issues so far. I did break them in around the house and several treadmill walks, and added new insoles too.

Rode F22s all last year and these are noticeably stiffer. They did feel a bit wet on the inside today when I checked them. I didn't notice wet feet at all. Could have just been cold and damp from sitting in the car and sweat.

So far I'm really liking them.

The UFOs are so stiff its almost like wearing a ski boot. I have the Maysis and love them, perfect amount of stiffness and the inner ankle cuff is awesome.

They're called SOLE I think. REI stocks them. They're the blue ones.
