I was looking at these boots. Do you guys think they would be a solid split choice or are they all show?

Also, would that lip on the front and heal be enough for semi-auto crampons?

They certainly are a very stylish pair of boots... I think if you found them in a shop you could put them on and feel very quickly if they were a solid snowboard boot or not.

:shock: :shock: :shock:

I think these would be a terrible choice for any type of backcountry riding, forget about splitting. Look at that sole, looks like zero tread. Also would not recommend trying crampons on these. (For the pons, you want a very stiff sole, these look like they have the opposite.)

The rovers are soft flex. Good boot if you like surfy soft boots. Good idea to treat the leather with nik wax or similar.
***edit oops I was talking about last years rover. Don't know about the boots you linked to .
