The Rome Folsom does what most boots claim to do, except actually does it-and that is keep your heels from lifting. The liner in these things seems overbuilt around the ankle area that it is actually kind of hard to get into them. And that is really awesome for anyone who has narrow heels and ankles, because you don't want a boot you can just slide into or it will feel like a slipper on the hill. With all the control the Folsom gives you, it is definitely a boot for the guy who likes to go fast, hit big features and rack up a lot of days. But if you like to hit rails and butter around, it does that comfortably too. If I had to compare the flex to other boots out there, it's right up there with a ThirtyTwo TM2 and maybe a tad softer than the Burton Imperial. Definitely recommend it for the well-rounded rider who demands support.
