32 Lashed and TM-Two, built tough.
 
These Lashed have almost 150 days on them. My stormtrooper Tm-Twos have about 50.

Pretty much I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. Every one of these blemishes on the Lashed is from binding rub or chairlift-board-rest, and compeletely cosmetic. There is no excess material getting hung up on shit and there is only 1 layer of paint or material missing. No water getting in at all even close.

The spines are a little broken down but that's mostly from getting in and out of them. I'm far from done with this pair.

As you can see, after 50 days on the Tm-Twos they are just dirty. There is not even a mark on them worth pointing out.

The heel hold system built into 32 is unbeatable. If you ever have heel lift and not tried 32, you are really doing yourself a disservice. There is basically a webbing system that locks the liner into the heel of the shell, its just bomber.

As far as fit they seem to have a bit wider toebox like Keens and fit me similarly. I wear a 10 in hiking and skate shoes and 9 in these boots. Pretty snug performance fit. Starting last year I began to wear them with Remind Medic insoles (size 9-9.5).

This year I plan to migrate from the Lashed to the TM's as my main pair, the Lashed have served well and will probably be reserved for hiking with better articulation.

How does the stiffness of the tm two compare to the lashed? I really liked the flex of the lashed when I first got it but after about 60 days on them they feel droopy. I don't do too much park and enjoy the responsiveness of a stiffer boot but not too stiff that it has no play. What do you think about the flex of the tm two for all mountain freestyle? BTW i don't weigh a whole lot so that is also an factor.

the flex of the tmtwo is much stiffer but by no means a freeride ultra stiff boot.

my buddy has the prime which fills that spot.

It really is right in the middle, super good middle of the road, supportive flex.

hm did your lashed boots pack out much? i've heard a lot of stuff about 32's being easily worn out but you seem to have pretty good luck witht hem!

The Lashed that I have, have what I thought to be very minimal padding/thickness to the liner to begin with, so I found the packout to not be so noticeable. As I've said I put a ton of days on them and with a proper footbed they lasted a long time. They were always a pretty soft boot. The liner of the TM-Twos is like 3x thicker.

From my own experience, they have been durable . After my liners packed out a little I just threw them in the oven at a low heat and they regained their thickness.
