So I got a new board and bindings and am now thinking about new boots as well. I currently have a pair of Burton SL-10's and they're fairly stiff. I don't ride pipe or park - purely groomers and occasionally a bit of powder.
It sounds like the dual-Boa setup is pretty nice and would appreciate any suggestions.
32 seems to have a solid rep around here and the Focus looks like a nice boot. My problem is that the board shops where I live are completely lame and rarely carry any high-end equipment that doesn't say "Burton" on it.
How did the Focus sizing compare to your normal shoe size?
For the first time ever I loosened up the upper zone in Utah several times.
These are true dual zone BOA also, not meet in the middle so as to where you loosen one you're loosening the other. They're stiff...... paired with Burton Diode's if you're doing a lot of traversing for decent distances it's very nice to be able to loosen that upper zone..... especially when traversing that toe side for a mile.
I was afraid of that - none of my local shops carry high-end boots so I won't be able to try them on first. Looks like I'll need to find an online shop with a good return policy and make an educated guess on size.
