Rome Smith PureFlex 2013 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

The Rome Smith is great for the 20 days a year rider who is looking for something to dabble with everything. If you are a cheap bastard who likes a soft boot but ride 100 days a year it will hold up for at least the season.  It doesn’t have tech that will blow your mind and we would like to see more articulation in the ankle. There is one issue with the Smith Pureflex and that is the handles are a little small and could be a little stronger.  If they strengthen this it would really help This in no way is a top of the line boot but it’s one of our favorite in this price range. For 2013 the Smith Pure Flex isn’t much different but it’s the call over the new Smith Traditional lace if you need more adjustability.
