My 32s have actually held up quite well.

I ride a lot, last year i got ~70days. The boots are still great.

I had heard of 32's not lasting long but I really can't complain

Yeah, 32 is known to not last. Not saying every boot blows apart, but they have a higher percentage that do. Kind of like DC....dammit!

Yep have to agree that they are not the most durable boots out there but..if they last a season that works for me given the amount of use they will see during a season.

I am pretty easy on my gear. Some riders are just hard on there gear and will tear up anything.

Thirty two's should be loads better this year. The guy that used to do burtons is now in full control of the thirty two line. Hes fixed alot of the gripes I've heard. I've heard most people are braking the strap loop on the liners and such and thats supposed to be beefed up. Also they finally put in removable and replacable footbeds, now you can get custom footbeds for yo 32.

But if you are worried about durability, I've yet to have mid to higher end burtons fail, or really any salomons.
