Forums Boots Soft Boots? Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)Author Posts August 24, 2014 at 7:20 pm #580076 mursemorlock 2 PostsI have been using Ride Insano boots for the past 3 seasons for both resort and backcountry riding. Currently looking at purchasing a new pair of boots and am interested to know what others may be using for the same hybrid riding situation? I have read a lot about the Fitwell for it’s backcountry use, but other than the Burton Driver, I am still interested in exporting some other options. The Insano has been decent for me, but is definitely shingles signs of wear at this point so I think it’s time to pull the trigger and get into something a little newer, although I am not opposed to just replacing the liners if there is a good option out there as well.I mostly ride Colorado backcountry and some resorts in the area, with the occasional trip to BC and a trip to Japan coming up this season.Thanks everyone!

Other than that go with the boots that fit you and your riding style best. I just got a pair of SLX’s (90% off, Ha!) and I’m sure they will work just fine for my North East touring, ymmv.

It’s a little added confidence for something like 20 bucks although you could easily make your own. Viewing 4 posts - 1 through 4 (of 4 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
