The 09 Cells are absolutely amazing boots. They are the most supportive and comfortable I've put my foot into thus far. Super light, and they have a great feel with Ronix's Baseless construction. ZERO heel lift in these babies. At first impression, they do seem unnaturally stiff but get few sets in on them, and they'll be supportive when you want them to be, and still have plenty of flexibility to tweak out your grabs the way you want to. Highly recommend them. Any other questions, just let me know! Ronix all the way!
