These boots are great! I bought the 2012 model - why pay full price for something when in a year, it will be on sale? These boots are great quality for a great price (due to the model and the winter sale Evo was having). They keep your feet warm when on the mountain, hill, or in the street. They have good traction and fit nicely. Before purchasing, I read others' reviews, in which some, it was suggested to get a half size to a size bigger. I wear a 11.5 because my foot size is just in between 11 and 11.5, so when purchasing these boots, I bought a 12. I'm glad I bought a size 12 boot. They are comfortable and snug - but not in a bad way. Bottom line, these boots are butt-kicking. I can't tell you what to do, but if I had the power, I would suggest you buy these boots or bust... Just kidding. Seriously, buy these boots.

I haven't had a chance to use them yet - but I've been wearing them around the house and strapping into the board to get accustomed.

The boots seem rugged enough, and the grip on the bottom is good. They have about the right amount of flex for general riding I think.

The lacing system is just a standard lace - works ok.

The problems:
They are a full size smaller than advertised. I am normally a 10.5, I bought an 11 - my toes just press the end; if I was buying again today I would buy 11.5.

I have a medium wide very flat foot, I bought DC because they are generally more accomodating for width, but the bottom is flat - like a pancake. I don't think there's any heat moulding option on these - so factor in buying a set of insoles.

Hopefully with an insole these will be good; at least they were cheap.

    Gives you frozen toes and calf cramps. Maybe okay if you're a beginning rider. Not for the advanced or park riders.

      Comments about DC Phase Snowboard Boots 2012:

      Bought two pairs for my sons on a killer deal that I couldn't pass up. These boots seem good for the price. Very good ankle support, I don't expect any lift. I own a pair of the same boots from 2006 and the older boots seem a little better quality, but time will tell.

        I bought these for my son to go to Colorado. They were great and kept him warm and comfy. the only issue was that he wears a 7.5 and I bought these at 8.0. They fit great but di not have the extra room that I expected.

        Great shoe. It is so light i would say it is even lighter then my running shoe. Make sure you get a half size bigger. I remember the first time I had them on they gave my foot cramps but all i had to do is break the shoe in. Other than that, this is my first shoe i ever bought and it did not let me down.

                    Size runs about 1/2 to 1 size small. I usually wear a 10.5 shoe so I ordered 11 (since 11.5 was out of stock anyways). Fits snug (toes right at the top of the boot).

                    Other than the fit, the boot is great!! Not too much flex, but enough for beginners. great for all mountain riding.

                      I just used these boots for the first time at Kirkwood after 8-16" of new snow and had an absolute blast all day. My feet never fell asleep and I had enough flexibility to hit the park and powder with ease and feel like I'm in complete control. I'n sure there are better boots out there, but I enjoy this classic style, and for the type of riding I do, these boots suit my needs.

                        I got the black/red style and they look great.

                        I normally wear size 11-12 for shoes/boots so I got a 12 to be safe... it cut off circulation to my toes. Got a 13 and they were comfortably snug.

                        I used them for three days in Whistler and found them comfortable and warm.

                        The only slight issue I found was that it doesn't seem to hold my ankle down very well, but I have slighlty narrow feet overall. I didn't notice any change in performance on the mountain though.

                          Bought these boots for my son. I got them on sale. They "just " fit him. So I had to return them. I looked online and noticed they were full price again. So I called and got a bigger size for the sale price for my return. The person I talked to was great and very helpful. I love EVO, will definitly be a returning customer. Considering we live across the country from this company I felt the exchange was rather easy. Got the boots, my kid is a happy camper-snowboarder. Thank you!! :)

                                Seem to be very good boots. Nice quality. Comfortable. Nice look. They do seem to run a little small, definitely get a half to whole size larger than normal.

                                  I just received these boots and they seem to be very good quality. They are comfortable, but they do run a little small. I had to return a pair and order a half-size larger. Got these on 2012 clearance and I am excited to try them out this winter.

                                  I haven't had a chance to use them yet - but I've been wearing them around the house and strapping into the board to get accustomed.

                                  The boots seem rugged enough, and the grip on the bottom is good. They have about the right amount of flex for general riding I think.

                                  The lacing system is just a standard lace - works ok.

                                  The problems:
                                  They are a full size smaller than advertised. I am normally a 10.5, I bought an 11 - my toes just press the end; if I was buying again today I would buy 11.5.

                                  I have a medium wide very flat foot, I bought DC because they are generally more accomodating for width, but the bottom is flat - like a pancake. I don't think there's any heat moulding option on these - so factor in buying a set of insoles.

                                  Hopefully with an insole these will be good; at least they were cheap.

                                        Really great boot. They're comfortable and look awesome. The only complaint I have is that they seem a little short on the sizing. The width is fine and can even be a little loose but I can feel my toe against the front. It's not really cramped but if my feet were to grow at all these boots would be too short.

                                              If marrying a pair of boots was legal, I would most certainly elope with these DC Phase Snowboard Boots 2012 by DC Shoes. We were made for each other. I can feel it. The feeling when these luscious boots wrap around my feet is practically indescribable. I suppose if I were Shaun White, I could relate it to getting a perfect run in the 2012 winter x-games. Thats how I feel when wearing these beautiful puppies.
