I've had these boots for 4 years and they have been great. I'm almost always breaking trail and ski 100+ miles per winter. The boots are still in excellent condition. I have long skinny skis (205's), and this combination is best for touring. The boots provide good support, but as you can see they do not have buckles so are not designed for making turns. The only problem I have had is a worn spot in the liner and occasional hot spots on my heel when skiing in warm weather. I would buy them again, but it does not look like I will need to anytime soon.

I have had these boots for under a year, one of the gaiter d rings has torn off the boot. One of the ankle straps has torn, an easy fix with needle and thread. Overall a good warm boot to get into the sport, but it wont last for years and years!
