I could swear I've seen this, but can't remember where.

That's what I was thinking, boots will wear out long before the toe is cut to shreds. Hell I've probably got about 100 days on my current pair and the toe is marginally worse on my back foot.

There are a million little problems in snowboarding to solve, but I don't see this as one of them. Not for my needs anyway!

Now if somebody could just make a pair of pants that are baggy enough to be comfortable but don't hang down 4" past the bottom of my boots.

Being 280 lbs and a person than rides an average of 30k' a day I only use boots for about 50 days. I pack the fuck out of my boots and then buy new ones. I'm on my 3rd pair this season. I don't give a shit if they get scratched up on my edge. These flow boots are pretty nice though and have about 60 days on them so far. I might actually get 90 days out of them.

Someone's not stopping to enjoy the view...
A few years ago I would have just told you to get stiffer boots, but after working on the mountain and getting in 120 full days, I totally went through 2 pairs that season and needed a third pair early in the next season. Boots fucking suck!! If a hiking boot company came out with some snowboard boots designed to last, I'd pick them up in a hot second!

I'm imagining some Merrell snowboard boots...

Spandex. Here is what they should look like on girls. I will refrain from posting a picture with the version for guys...
