Im loving mine. They are really comfortable and no heal lift. Best boots Ive owned. This year I tried Driver X, DC boa, etc, and I really like these Malamutes

You are absolutely right. Boots are the most important piece of gear to snowboarding.

Old beat up boots just suck. The life of soft snowboard boots is pathetic. Yeah we pay (relative to ski boots) very little for them but as everyone on this board pretty much agrees splitters are ready for a REAL soft snowboard boot.

It may cost a lot more but I think many of us are willing to pay for a high quality boot that will last and has features we are looking that has been covered in numerous boot threads.

I am just over it and have switched to hardboots, Scarpa F1s. I am hoping to get the durability and lifetime out of them that snowboard boots lack. Through mods I am confident I can get them to ride how I want to.

All of us here can only hope boots like the Deeluxe Spark are a step in the right direction for soft snowboard boot production and in the coming years we'll see high quality offerings!
