The Thirty Two Women’s STW BOA is the BOA version of the 32 Exus. If the STW is comfortable for you then why not. It’s all about comfort at this point and the STW isn’t bad in terms of performance in this price range. Thirty Two also makes some of the wider toe snowboard boots out there so if you have wide feet they are worth considering. We like the rubber sole because it seems to have good traction in most conditions you will experience. The STW isn’t going to blow any minds but if you want an easy in easy out entry level boot then the STW might work fo you.
