What Transworld Snowboarding had to say about the 2016 DC Travis Rice Pro Model:

Testers said “ahhhh” when they slid into these boots, which felt like a favorite pair of skate shoes. Don’t let the park boot comfort fool you; these are designed to be ridden aggressively. Cliff drops, steep chutes, and icy trails, they handled everything we threw at them with ease. We were most impressed by the boots’ asymmetrical design, which provided confidence-inspiring forgiveness that had our testers hucking bigger cliffs than usual.

What Snowboard Magazine had to say about the 2016 K2 Contour Women’s Snowboard Boot:

Premium materials, state of the art technology and custom comfort define the K2 Contour women’s snowboard boot so it’s built to last. K2’s Conda™ system, operated by a Boa® dial, allows you to reach beneath the Contour’s pretty surface and adjust the Intuition™ liner from the outside of the boot. A Grip Lite sole provides traction without weighing you down — exactly as it sounds — and Harshmellow™ technology paired with a 3D formed EVA footbed reduces fatigue from hard landings and long days. All of this comes in a mid-flex package that makes it the boot of choice for the K2 Women’s Alliance team.

For the rider who: knows there’s no reason to settle, because pleasing aesthetics and plush comfort aren’t mutually exclusive.
