I have a pair 2012 Burton Ion boots size US 9 in black. I used them about 5 times while snowboarding with a beginner. Not much wear and tear at all, if any. Size 9 was way ended up being too small for me. Great for the ankles, but not so much for my toes. These are under warranty until March 2013. $200 shipped via USPS to the lower 48.
