SteadyHigh My selects I ordered from backcountry.com came in two days from the USA to Canada. Super impressed on the quick shipping, ad free shipping. Haven't tried the boots yet, my gf just let me know it came last night. Thanks for that link I'll be using this site lots

SteadyHigh They were good for about 30 days if that

Then they start to fall apart, the leather on the top of the toes is coming apart

I bought them for the stiffness and they lost the stiffness real quick.

I wouldent recommend them, I convinced myself they wernt that bad but the truth is I was never happy with them.

Spyrothedragon9 How did you like the ions? I'm seriously considering buying a pair.

hikeswithdogs I'll never wear anything but Salomon's again, their F series is where it's at for me.

sheepstealer I'm on my second year with the Ride Jacksons. I ride all-mountain and park mostly, so I need something that's middle of the road. I'm not a big fan of softer boots, I like the response from stiffer boots - the Jackson's rate a 7 or 8 on Ride's scale (10 being most stiff).

I have terrible feet (flat footed, ankle problems, etc) and love these boots. It took me a while to get used to the Boa system - I usually adjust it two or three times throughout the day but honestly, this isn't a huge deal as its so easy to adjust. Otherwise, excellent boot - responsive as heck but I can still tweak and get buttery when I need to.

My .02!

Thanks again!

The link I listed is from Backcountry.com, which will ship to your for free to US/Canada and will accept the returned boot EVEN if you ride it and decide you don't like it for a FULL REFUND.


I've owned the 32 Tm-Two and ridden the Prime. 32boots are just super soft in general... the Tm-Two is like a 5 out of 10 and went to mush after 30 days. The Prime was only marginally better. Salomons are better, but the heel is still a little wide (I get heel lift). Nitro is the BEST for narrow heel wide toes (I have flat feet too, but custom footbeds are what fix that problem)

In my search for boots I have tried multiple models of Burton, Ride, K2, DCshoes, Vans, 32, Salomon (F22, F24, Dialogue, Synapse, Malamute, and Nitros boots.

SteadyHigh Any other input is highly appreciated, ongoing to be looking the next week or two so if I can narrow it down two 2-3 models to try it would help great. Not to interested in what you have heard , only what you have rode and know first hand

Thanks a lot guys

SteadyHigh Thanks man, I'll forsure check them out. I've got custom footbeds for a high arch that i would throw in there. But definabtly would like a pair of boots with the removable inserts. I'm gonna check those nitros out, those nikes with the insert look pretty sick. And the trice dcs look promising as well, cant remember the model name
