So I just bought both of these and I am going to ride both and see which I like better... just figured you all would like to see some pics of the new limited edition shanes and watsons..... here ya go! I tried both of them on and they feel amazing... had them on while I was playing xbox for a good hour or two and both pairs felt cumfy the whole time...

Heres a question..... Besides the closed toe, how are the shanes and the watsons built differently.... I have been told that the shanes are less supportive than the watsons but when I look at both boots, they are built exactly the same... do they use like different thicknesses of meterial??????? Also when wearing them not on a board they almost feel the same support wise?? Someone care to explain?

no folks involved... I cant get them to give me money for anything..... 2 real jobs, neighborhood car washing, boat cleaning, and some lawn work, to pay for boat gas (THE BIGGIE), board/binding setup, and since I am only 15 I am saving everything I don't spend to put towards my car in 2 months.... going for a 2002 or newer Jeep Grand Cherokee V8, 4 wheel drive so I can pull the boat and have plenty of room for the ladies.... that or a tahoe... but anyway... like I said I am not keeping both, I am trying them both and selling which ever I don't like as much... I should get the parents to pay for this stuff... lol

its good stuff... the board is amazing... crazy pop... good speed (not super fast but def on the faster side) and good control.. same with bindings... good stuff... no hands entry... tighten the laces and ride in luxury...

i think those watsons are very ugly. the shanes are ok, i like them better then the regular edition shanes, but the watsons are hideous

At least I wasn't the first!

The watsons are definitely not my thing. I'll take some straight black boots over the plaid.

I think both of those boots are hideous, but they look comfortable. I love that board though, it will be my next board.

I was wondering if the Shanes held water in.
