Good stiff responsive boots?
 
Anyone got any ideas on a good stiff, responsive boot? I currently am looking at dc statuses, ride t1, and Burton driver x. Which of these would you prefer? also dc judge is another option. I currently am riding a burton moto from like 4 years ago, so i would like suggestions on a stiffer boot

Re: Good stiff responsive boots?
 
I went from a pair of Motos to Ride RFLs and I love them. Super light, fit my feet, etc. I got the spd version because I love speed laces. You really need to get your feet in some boots to decide though. Walking into the store I thought I was walking out with Ions for sure, but trying them on changed my mind.

:giggle:you got me, your title sounded like you were talking about me, not a boot. I rock the new T-rice DC boot-They are lock down with a fat stiffy. Double boa is the shit.

new malamute AND synapse (non boa, non-wide) on the way. maybe i'll review after i break them in. my f22's loosend up big time after break in. started very stiff and noe medium stiff at best. just throwing that out there.

just got some driver x's and couldnt be happier. the response is amazing and the dual zone speed lace works great though i was skeptical at first.sizing runs a little small though.i usually have some achilles pain from heelside chatter and these boots have cured that.alot of happy feet in malamutes as well.make sure you really want a stiff boot,throws off the park hits a little for some.

Driver X's are what you get when you wanna put a boot up someones ass?:dunno:

I got last year's Status boots from DC on sale this year.
Love them.
Stiff, responsive, but still comfortable for this kind of boot.
And yes, I like the dual boa lacing also.

Salomon Malamutes are probably the stiffest boot I've tried on. But painfully stiff IMO.

I've had a few pair of Driver Xs and love them, but they fit my feet right, they might not fit your feet right.

Best bet if you want STIFF boots is to get a list of the stiff ones, and head down to shops to try them all on.

I bought my latest pair of drivers a half size smaller than I've ever bought a boot before, and they feel LOCKED. No heel movement, excellent support, response, etc. I have going on 75 days on them and they're still good and stiff.
