They look to have decent traction on the bottoms but they don’t look overly durable to me…as far as attachment to the boot in the toe area for kicking steps. As Dave mentioned too, if the crampons fit snap on…that would be tight but I’d like to see a little more reinforcement still.

I’m looking for a new boot and i like the fact that these actually have laces, so i can do something about it out in the bc if they break. how’s the durability? December 14, 2005 at 3:58 am #582573 bcrider 4150 Posts I’m only familiar with the older T1 Cliker boots (non Vibram) bdub. Burton also offers a Vibram sole on the Driver X, it might be worth a look. I think I would prefer that over the new TI as I’m not a fan of BOA. Good luck! Ps. Ho was your big trip? No TR? 🙂 April 24, 2006 at 9:47 pm #582574 shasta 143 Posts Don’t know about the 2006’s but my 2005 TI’s are headed for the trash, ski swap, whatever. Basically I get hot spots on almost every climb because of heel slop. If I tighten them to eliminate the slop my feet go numb but the heel slop continues. I figured the vibram soles meant they were set up for hiking; bad assumption I guess. Also they are very bulky, had to go way out on my strap bindings just to fit ’em in.
