I bought these snowboard boots for my daughter. She outgrew her first pair and loved them so much, I bought her a second pair of the same boots. Each year, the Burton Emerald boot has different exterior patterns, but the boot is the same. They have a super warm liner and they fit snuggly (no slipping at the heal). She tried on several brands and models before she found one that didn't slip. They have a pull-string tighting mechanism, so no hand lacing. This saves a lot of time. You pull the bottom tight and it locks into place and you pull the top tight and it locks into place. The pull strings even have their own pockets to tuck into, so no long strings hanging out. They are very well made. My daughter is tough on boots and she outgrew these boots and the boots still look great (normally she destroys the boots long before they are outgrown). I will continue to buy these boots every time she outgrows hers.

Love these boots
My shoe size is 7.5 but after trying these on in the local ski store; I order a size 8. My first time snowboarding they were heaven! The laces are so easy to use. They kept my foot very warm and were comfortable to walk around in. I highly recommend these and the black/white with houndstooth design and splash of green color looks even better in person than in the photo.

I bought these boots for my daughter who is an amature snowboarder. She told me that the boots have an excellent fit, and even after 8 hours of non-stop riding her feet were not sore or tired at all. She highly recommended it to everyone (including me).

These are the ones!
I finally broke down and bought boots this year and these are the ones to own. I have a very narrow foot and these fit tight in the heel, so no more heel lifting. I'm sure they will soften after use, but they get an A+ in my book!
