The Ride Insano Focus is a stiff boot. If you have a stiff board and a stiff binding, then this will be a good pairing. The double BOA lacing system is easy and comfortable, however both boas seem to tighten around the ankle in the same place. So my advice is keep one tighter and one looser. These aren't for the park or for tricks, but if you like to ride fast and need the stability, then these are awesome. Uncomfortable at 1st, but after a couple of uses they seemed to mold to my feet and now they feel great.

I would first like to say that I LOVE RIDE SNOWBOARD PRODUCTS!

My issue with the Insano Boot is that it uses metal rings as part of their internal lacing system. Even with thick socks and the intuition dream liner, the ring on the internal lacing system is driven into my ankle when the BOA is tightened. I have only walked around the house with them but it hurts so bad that I couldn't imagine spending the whole day on the mountain with them. I don't know if it is the boot or just where my ankle is but this boot isn't for me. I will just use my current Ride boots for another season and wait to see if Ride releases another boot that will work for me...

Regardless of this experience I will only use Ride boots!!

Comments about Ride Insano Focus Boa Snowboard Boots 2013:

I jumped ship from my Burton Ion's, which I loved, but the lacing system was unreliable and ultimately failed. I love the Boa system and I am an official convert now. They're wicked stiff but that's why I bought them, and the adjustability of the BOA laces allows you to go as tight or loose as you want. Buy them.

      Comments about Ride Insano Focus Boa Snowboard Boots 2013:

      This boot is comfy and stiff. Exactly what I wanted. I also have a wide foot and these fit great. Lacing with the boa is the only way to go. Used to be a die hard traditional lace up guy, but not any more. Only problem I see is the sole could wear out fast due to no rubber on it. And the ice picks are cool but if you walk in the parking lots they just wear out. Would love to see a rubber sole , but otherwise a awesome boot

          My 2nd pair of Insano, love those. They are super stiff though. Perfect if you have had some ankle issue in the past. Made to go at Mach 5 on slopes. Great for jumps and powder as well. Not sure about jib.

                          Very comfortable boot
                          Stiffer boot, still allows for moderate flexion
                          The Boa system is incredible - allows for modulation of the upper and lower parts of boots. Very fast.
                          I wear a 8.5 running sneaker and this boot fits perfectly. Toes barely brush the front of boots.

                              The Ride Insano Focus is a stiff boot. If you have a stiff board and a stiff binding, then this will be a good pairing. The double BOA lacing system is easy and comfortable, however both boas seem to tighten around the ankle in the same place. So my advice is keep one tighter and one looser. These aren't for the park or for tricks, but if you like to ride fast and need the stability, then these are awesome. Uncomfortable at 1st, but after a couple of uses they seemed to mold to my feet and now they feel great.

                                I like the double boa aspect. Once you have tried this you will never go back. It has a nice comfortable liner. I normally take a size 10, but a 9 1/2. fit perfect. This is a stiff boot, great for charging and going fast. If you want flex this is not for you.

                                  I love the comfort and the ease of the lacing system on these boots. They're the easiest stiff boots I've ever put on becuase they so easily open a lot with the BOA lacing system, and I have both of them off my feet in less then 10 seconds.

                                  When you slip your feet into these even without doing the heat molding of the lining, they feel completely supportive without any pinch points.

                                  This is the most satisfied with a boot purchase I have ever been.

                                      Nice fitting boot I love the dual zone quick lacing system. Would never look back at a different boot.
