The Bodega Collection is our offering for riders who want a softer flexing boot that doesn’t skimp on performance. The plush Pro F.I.T. Liner keeps things supportive thanks to the molded SkateCuff 3D in the ankle region but has a focus on smooth-flexing tweakability, thanks to the GripFlex Outsole. With a focus on board feel and pressability, the Bodega Collection is a freestyle-minded offering for riders who want to tweak.
Love the feel of the boots but the toe material has been destroyed within 2 months of riding. I work in a rental shop and our rental boots have no damage after 2-3 seasons of use.
Very disappointed and Rome will not cover under warranty. The product is no fit for purpose.
I bought these boots excited to have my first, nice, higher end pair of boots. I used the boots for a total of 1 day before looking down and seeing the attached picture. I could understand if the boots sustained such damage after an entire season or two, but not a day. So, I took the boots back to the shop that I bought them from, and the manager suggested I put JB Weld or epoxy onto the toe to protect it from damaging further in the future. With all due respect to the shop manager and to Rome, I did not spend $350 on boots to put JB Weld on them after one days' use. My previous pair of boots (the cheapest K2 has to offer) withstood 7 years of riding progression from Novice to Intermediate to skilled rider and still don't have a single rip, tear, or even scuff on them. I am disappointed with the quality of the material used. The boots are extremely comfortable and look super shiny and well made in the store, evidently until you use them for the first time and get the damage you see here. I spoke with the warranty department, and they said that this kind of damage is not covered by their warranty. Overall, save your money and buy yourself a pair of boots that won't need JB weld after 1 days' riding.
The toe cap material is way too soft. I used these 5 times. I looked down and there was a slice in them. It was too easy (and early) for that to happen. They won’t cover it on their warranty. This is a poor quality issue. I am not the only one this has happened to. Brand new boots that they suggested to put “shoe goo” on. How long until it happens again? Not worth the money.
This is my first Rome-Boot, that I bought in Germany 2 weeks ago. The Inliner fits perfect around the ankle and my feet are super warm on the mountain day. The middle flex is perfect aswell.
But there is one horrible material around the front-cap outliner. This material is so super soft. When I waited in the lift-line, a person catched my front boot with his ski, and the Boot got a deep cut in this soft material on the first day threw the hole material :(. I would never buy a boot again with this soft-rubber material at the front cap. Absolutely annoying
Love them. I upgraded from 10 yr old Burtons and noticed a HUGE difference (tech has come along way ;) Super responsive and comfortable. Would def recommend for the avid snowboarder looking for added control, stability and comfort.
