I'm on my third year with mine. They have great support and are really comfortable. My feet stay warm, and have never been cold in them. They are a pain in the a$$ to get on and off but you get used to it and get faster at it. They aren't coming apart and are holding up good. I would buy another pair. A freind of mine wears his snowboard boots, they're pretty much the same thing exept they have a twisting thing for tightning them up. I saw some like it in Dennis Kirk, pretty slick deal.
