KansasNoob I haven't ridden many boots, but I have the TM-2's and I can say they improved my riding. Gave me the confidence I needed to attack black terrain.

Fergatron2000 Thread jack!

Sounds like the OP got his boots anyway. So I own some lashed for park and slush days. Been thinking about the judges for a more big mountain boot free ride boot. I think both of these brands fit a wide forefoot well. Do you find the judge to be too stiff for Parkin or versatile enough?

I'd probably just keep riding my lashed for everything but I've had a few ankle breaker moments charging in the PNW crud. Lookin at the DC Ceptor or judges, vans cirro, or 32 TM twos.

Whats your riding style?
What are your board(s) / bindings you'd be using?
What is your (believed) size in SB boot?
Have you used the BOA lacing system before?

Edit: and by "both" I meant the boots mentioned in your title 32 Lashed and DC Judge

nunex kk thx mate!

So, I'm kinda new with this FT system... I just have to pull the laces or is it convenient to put some pressure on the boot flap to make it snug?

--bigtime-- Looks good homie. Congrats on the new purchase now get out there and rip it up.....just watch yourself with those liner laces. The lashed liners can be pulled down so damn tight that you'll cut off the blood supply to your feet...been there, done that.

So, have I found the right size?

They arrived today and they're awesome!

Thx all of you, for the help

There's a fix for this and it's easy. Just take them outside on pavement and scuff them up. The finish they use on the foam outsoles makes them slippery. If you scuff them up and take off the shine they work fine. Gives they a good amount of traction, but when it comes to ice not much helps unless you use ice spikes. But the scuffing method does help if you feel they are slippery.

I've been using Thirty Two for years and after scuffing the outsoles I've never had too many issues after that.

nunex I'll try to heat mold them with the blow dryer method, as you can imagine, there is no heat molding machine in a 1200km radius.

They arrive Friday, I'll post some pics then (I'm happy as a little girl getting a pony)

--bigtime-- OK, cool. Sounds like you got it pretty much set.
Don't forget to get them liners heat molded and wear slightly thinner socks then your normal boot sock when you do.

nunex So I've decided on the 32 Lashed FT. I would love to try the Focus BOA, but they were out of stock for those... DC doesn't ship to Portugal either, only to a limited number of EU countries.

I've measured my foot, I got 25.5cm, so I ordered the size 40 (7.5 US).

Kinda risky, buying boots from the internet... but I can return them in 30 days.

Thx everyone!
