So did anyone end up testing these out last season and have a review? I'm wondering about them... :twocents:

I think these are pretty sweet, haven't ridden in them but they seem pretty quality.

One of the only boots w actual waterproof membrane to em.

I recently got mine. No riding yet. Run true to size. Remind me very strongly of my 2011 Driver X boots. Pretty stiff uppers, comfy and close fit, good support. The heel area is a little soft in the sole for impact absorption, but if wonder how it will hold up to hiking. The BOA system works well in the living room. I was drawn to the waterproof claim, but the tongue has no gusset, so water can pour in along the edge of the tongue. Dumb. Maybe the fabric is water resistant, but forget dashing across a creek on the approach. Pretty expensive boots. They had better hold up well.

I own the predecessor, called "The One", which looks pretty much the same.

Stiff, comfortable, great to ride!
Love the Boa-System. Supereasy and quick to get the laces tighter without even lifting the pants.

I just received these in the mail yesterday.
After hanging out in them all night (including a brief nap)...

A very stiff boot when all tightened up.
Really looking forward to the Dual BOA zones... I can see the advantages for touring, walking, booting, etc.
Very good fit out of the box, with a pretty nice liner that is very snug along the heel/arch.

Overall, I'm super-satisfied!

Snoozed and loozed. Wish you had written that when they were on the cartel! I was on the fence but didn't order them.
