Has anyone tried these? I like them but I want to know before I get them how far up your thigh these go? Only as far as the minx? (lower than guys bindings) Or do they go a bit more? I prefer the higher ones, I bought a pair of minx this year but ended up going back to my transits because of that. <BR> <BR>If anyone can help me with this I really appreciate it, I have nowhere to demo or even see these in person. <BR>Thanks

They're super comfy, go pretty high up your calf. Feel like the girl version of the watson's. I was surprised that they laced up so high, most of the girl bindings don't do that.

Thanks!! Thats what I wanted to hear... <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> would you say they go higher than the minx?

I got mine the other day, and I wasn't as happy as I'd hoped, but not sure if I just got the wrong size?! <BR>They fit really well across my feet, and around my leg, but I get a heap of heel lift... Anyone else get the same thing? I had the same trouble in my transits, but I thought these might fit better because they're a ladies cut.

Which size transits did you wear and which size melissa did you get? Maybe you're not tightening them enough? Are they big overall or just around the heel?? <BR> <BR>Can you tell me if they go as high up the calf as your transits? or are they lower?

i had medium transits and i got 7-9 melissas (i am size 8). they're only big around the heel. yes i did them up very tightly, but i found out that you don't need to do them up very tight... firm is good across the toes - tight will cause pain! firm is fine and your feet wont move. I'm not concerned about my foot or my leg - both feel very secure. it's just my heels. i get a fair bit of side to side movement and a bit of lift. if you can find a way to try these on before buying them I really think you should. <BR>i expected heel movement in the transits because they were men's boots, but thought that since these were women's boots they'd have a narrower shape like my minx (which fit pretty well around my heel).

=/ I am the same size as you... I also have the Transits in medium. So Im guessing Ill have the same problem as you. That sucks, I really liked the look of those bindings and I want to get the Jett so the Limited Editions would have looked sweet with it. I dont think Ill get the chance to try before I buy, so I'll guess I'll get the new Transits cause I love mine but they're starting to die... <BR> <BR>Thanks a lot for your help, if you find out a way to make them fit better let me know!
