I have always rode in 32 boots (minus one season in Burton Ramparts). This season (2020-2021), my beloved Exits finally gave out, and I had to resort to buying a pair of Lashed Crab Grab's that were a size too big for me offered at a cheap price from a friend (don't worry, I'm still getting to the Lashed Diggers). After a month in the Lashed that were too big, my heel was in pain, and it was time to get a true pair of boots that fit me. I went to my local shop (Gravitee) where I was put into the Lashed Diggers in my true size. I was reluctant, being used to a softer boot and more broken-into boot. That was until I had the boots heat molded and fitted. I thought the break in period was going to take around a week or two of riding like most boots. By the end of my second day of riding in them, I did not want to get out of them. If I was working, I wanted to be back in them. 32 really upped their game up. Within a week, my boots feels like I'm stepping into pillows. The flex is just perfect for me, I have found a liking to the medium flex, best of both worlds. Writing this in week two, I hope to see how durable they really are for the rest of the 2020-2021 season and I hope they hold up for the next one! I've had some negative experience with past 32 boots where the laces or liner would break/snap on me. We'll see how they hold up. I highly recommend making sure you have the RIGHT size, getting them heat molded, and being patient enough to break then in. Because when they do break in, your feet will be thanking you. Can't wait to ride in them tomorrow!
well, my old pair of boots finally had their last day on hill and needed to be replaced. Then came the worry of what to get and the game of which boot will fit my foot perfectly. Not giving me random boot pain, annoying pressure points, and take forever to break-in. I went to stores and tried on tons of boots with no success, causing my level of stoke to dwindle to despair. Then I took a HUGE gamble buying boots online and boy was I pleasantly surprised! Dam, these boots fit SOOOO GUUUD. Thirtytwo Lashed Digger, My god, I was saved!! These boots are legendary. Just what I needed for how I ride. If you need something that can do all-mountain freestyle, park, or hiking some backyard hits, these boots are for you! After breaking in these things I couldn't have been happier with the feel, performance, comfort, and style (if that matters to ya). The craziest thing is the sole of the boot with the Michelin rubber. Not slippin anywhere on hill or the ice walk back to my car. The Flex is a happy medium and if you like soft boots, just take the time to break these bad boys in and you got something that'll last a whole season and more. I shread all year and can say I found the golden standard for snowboarding boots for park riders. I promise you, that you won't be disappointed!
