bubbachubba340 So I rode them yesterday and they definately hurt my feet. especially toward the beginning of the day, so today I took some paper and stuffed the toes with it and put my feet in and now they feel much better. I'm going to ride next weekend to so I'll report back with how that goes too.

bubbachubba340 as in the piece that holds your instep down or the hooks on the upper of the boot?

Shredder13 Nike's liners are amazing IMO. Let us know how they break in....
Oh and get some extra Lace Locks (the one on the outside laces), they break easy. You dealer should have extra ones!

bubbachubba340 Alright, so i picked up the Nike ZF1s for 175 in white. Theyre super sick. The liners are perfect and the stock insoles have three different densities of foam. Hard on the arch and around the very back of the heel and soft under the ball of your foot and under your heel and everywhere else is medium. They arent very comfortable to wear for a long time, but I'm sure that will change as they break in. Snowboarding Tomorrow!!

bubbachubba340 Well I'm a guy who rides park probably 95% of the time, so soft doesn't scare me as long as it isn't stupid soft.

that_guy I tried on the Ultralights from 09-10, and can't really say how durable they are, but although they're stiffer than the debut version last year, they are still way too soft for my liking. The liner seems significantly different from the others in the 32 line, it's covered with this 'mesh' that feels pretty rough.

wrathfuldeity OP yes. Years ago had pinons (entry), they are no comparison to my old 305's which were great high-end at the time, 4 seasons and then pretty much trashed but still very comfy and keep them as backups; and currently my focus boas are going great with one season on them. I've heard the the ultra lights are a little too light in the durability department. btw they do pack out a bit but then just add self adhesive foam padding where needed, e.g., c's, j's, butterflies and the like.

York Ah true that, the Lashed are that way.

bubbachubba340 Well I do know that some of the higher end 3s's have the lacing for the liner attached to the inside of the boot rather than the outside of the liner, which would probably increase the durability.

York That sounds to me like you need new liners. For me the best thing about the Lashed, and I think all ThirtyTwo boots, are the intuition liners, so if you're going to replace those maybe it's better to just buy new boots like you mentioned. Also, since ThirtyTwo boasts their moldable liner across their whole boot line, I wonder if there are actually any differences between the high end boot liners and the low end ones.

It's hard to say for your situation, but I felt my ThirtyTwos were so comfortable I'd probably go with another pair of the same boots after 60 days, as a lot of other boots give me crazy ankle bone pain. I had a bit of heel lift but like you said I think it's just a point of tightening the boots further. I'm a size 10 but I also went to a size 9 for the Lashed because I heard so much about ThirtyTwos packing out. It took a good two weeks for them to start feeling good after feeling like hell.
Perhaps ThirtyTwo will do something if you mention the busted liner stitching? It's always worth a shot I guess.
