    Comments about DC Status BOA Snowboard Boots 2012:

    I use this boot for the resort. I have used this boot with my split in the backcountry, but don't like to. If the boa breaks you are kind of screwed. But for resort days, best boot I have found. The inner ankle tightening is awesome and the Velcro strap across the top of the liner adds that extra bit of stability. Plus the boa is great for the resort. Don't have to take the boot out of the binding to get a little pressure relief.

      Comments about DC Status BOA Snowboard Boots 2012:

      Only used them once so far. Great bindings, the BOA system is amazing as I could never get a tight fit with laces and if I did, they would obviously loosen after a few runs. The two separate torques allow you to free up your toes if you feel the need. The only thing I hesitate to say is the quality of the material in terms of how long it will withstand the cable. There is a lot of pulling and "cutting" of the cable in my mind when tightening and I don't know how long that fabric/material will last. Barring that, I would totally get these, and as for the 2013 model, you're paying for T Rice's name so think twice about that as well. This is why I went with 2012 model.

      Comments about DC Status BOA Snowboard Boots 2012:

      I like to wear mine tight so I got the BOA but...

      I wear either a 10.5 or an 11 -> when standing my foot is a half-size bigger and I'd read that these run small so I got the 11's. It was a mistake because it feels a bit over-sized so its not as responsive as I'd like.

      Also, I tend to skate with my foot on the back and the finish on these boots is totally fragile––any minor nicks turn into tears in the leather finish. So after only a half-dozen rides, they look pretty well aged.

      I have a pair of white Solomons and they have a black rubberized portion on the toe area and they still look perfect after 2 years.
