The Forum Tramp looks like a normal traditional lace boot with an articulating cuff from one side but on the inside there is a completely different articulation tech implemented. This makes the boot flex differently in different directions and that really helps out in the park or when buttering around. This is a watered down Forum Forumula but it’s still not so watered down that you can’t get drunk of it’s ride. We like this tech and feel the only issue with the Tramp and the other Forum boots is the insoles. The liners of old were missing the special something that many other companies had but every year they seem to be improving when it comes to comfort and custom fit. Now they are right there with the others. The reduced footprint is great tech that allows your boot to be the same size on the inside but a size smaller on the outside. This can potentially get you into a smaller width board so you can get more response. This is magic for that size 11 boot rider that can now be a size 10 on the outside and potentially avoid getting a mid/wide board. This is a great freestyle focused lace boot for the price.
