HIGHLY AGREE. Ride Insano dbl boa. i got these boots 2 seasons ago i think or last season. i ride hard, pretty much the same shit you ride. i ride blackcomb im up in the glacier or 7th heaven, in the trees etc etc. i like to rip, like fuckn bomb, anywhere pow, groomer, and these boots are un real. super responsive. i love them, very comfortable. best part is you dont gotta tie laces, for me i HATE THAT. trust me dude, try these boots on, they're sick.

I actually tried these on yesterday..... they are the only boot with a boa that has not killed my foot. I did have a slight pressure point on my ankle but they swapped foot beds and they where perfect.

One thing i liked for sure is i could crank them down and they were nice and stiff or i could back them off a bit to get more flex if i wanted too and still no heel lift.

May actually end up buying these.

Actually I think the Serow's are wider than "normal" burton boots. Shorter and wider... They're great backcountry boots, amazing vibram soles, good support, etc.

Unfortunately the pair I bought were too big for me, I went through two pairs of Driver X until I found the right fitting boots after the Serow's... I would buy them again.

LOL I was thinking Jamaican bindings, when the bobsled team went belly up they started making bindings!

Actually I sold my Serows as they didn't fit me right, now I'm in Driver X's. I had no idea what the Serows were when I bought them, they were in stock at a store in Oakville, ON!?!

Also look at the Burton Serow, they're meant for the Japanese market so they fit a little different (wider?) than other boots. They're a great backcountry/off-piste freeride boot.

BigmountainVMD Solomon Malamute or Burton Driver X. I have the Burton Ions and love them, but they are a bit more flexible heel to toe, which I like for jumps. The Ions are known for their ability to be quite responsive, but still flexible. I had Driver Xs too and they were awesome freeride boots, but I wasn't a fan of hitting jumps with them. They have a hard plastic panel that you can slide in under the laces to slightly increase stiffness and increase longevity of the stiff flex.

quicklx I went and tried on a few more boots this evening...

Tried on some burton boots and surprisingly after about 30 minutes they actually got more comfy. I would like to try on the ion or the driver x.

I have not looked at any DC boots yet...I will now.

I don't want to just order a bunch online then return the ones that don't fit right....but that may be my only option.

Going to try some stores a bit further away from me tonight and see if I can fint something.
I went out on a limb and ordered the status last year on line. kinda sketchy not being able to try them on, but like i said, it turned it the best investment. I was able to stay on the mountain almost twice as long as i used to be able to do with my old K2 boots. Nothing against K2 boots, mine were just very old, 7 years of riding in them. The DC boots fit like a glove and keep my heel secure(my main problem with my old K2 Boots was heel lift), but likely was caused just from being old loose boots
