I wanted a boot this year that was soft.
I work a lot. I'm a family man...a husband, father of two young girls. I don't get to ride my snowboard as much as I used to (or as much as I wish I could). So, by the time I'm breaking my boots in, the season is just about over and all of the foot aches and pains were for nothing really. So for this year I decided to go with the softest boot 32 had to offer and went with the JP Walker model.
I feel I made a great choice. Straight out of the box, these boots were pretty much ready to go. They almost felt like a pair of skate shoes, comfort wise. So for me, getting to ride about once a week (weekend warrior) these were as good as it gets. I couldn't be happier with them.
If I was capable of going riding say, 2-3-4 times a week then yeah, these boots might have been blown out and overly soggy. But for me, and the type of riding I do at this point in my life, bar none, these were a perfect fit for me. If you're in the same boat as me, go for this boot. I'm positive you'll be smiling ear to ear.
