How are we...

I'm Looking at a pair of Northwave 'kevin jones' Vintage boots I've seen a good deal on, tried them on, very comfy, stiff enough and loook cool.

Anyone got any news on them??

dunno much about the specific model but northwaves in general are ace, unbelieveably comfortable.

got a pair of Northwave Legends - never had so much as a blister off them all season, they were as comfy the first time i wore them as they were at the end of the season.

My Northwave Legends lasted me 3 seasons, totally battered by the end like, but still soooo comfy. I swear by Northwave, although like ski boots each make favours a foot shape. Ie Northwave wide fit, 32 narrow fit etc.

If they're comfy then buy them. Everything else comes second to comfort when buying boots.

I'd say totally the opposite!

I've got narrow feet, northwaves are perfect, 32s are far too wide.

Gah! WHO BLOODY CARES ABOUT THE MAKE!

Go to the bloody shop and try them on, get the most comfy ones that are the most snug and dont bother buying bottom of the range boots.

oh well, if they are comfier than the rest then they are the right ones. If they are boots used by a pro they aren't going to be too bad either.

I have yet to hear of a scare story of any particular make...
