Let me start by saying my wife has loved her thirtytwo's, only good things to say about them, and luckily was able to by them locally, and try on to find the right size. Whats great about these boots that I purchased for myself is they are VERY lightweight, easy to get in and out of. Whats not great is the sole, which feels like molded plastic or foam, which despite deep tread, makes them extremely slippery on a number of common surfaces you will run into at resorts. The Exit model, on the other hand, appears to have the exact same molded pattern, but the material is more of a rubber, providing MUCH better grip on all surfaces. One star taken off for this. The other star was taken off because of Thirtytwo's sizing chart, which according to the mondopoint conversion would have put me in a men's size 7.5, when historically I've worn other brand's size 10. I unfortunately could not find the right sizes locally, so had to purchase direct from thirtytwo, and went somewhat middle of the road with an 8, which was still too tight - toes were curled. Thirtytwo offers free returns, but you unfortunately still lose out on the original shipping cost. My second order was still a bit off in sizing, but decided to suck it up and hope they break in a bit more in the future.
