TM-Two: Thirtytwo Snowboard Boots Review

thirtytwo snowboard boots review

Over 27 seasons of snowboarding I’ve ridden a lot of boots from several different companies — Sorel, Burton, Northwave, Vans, Salomon and Thirtytwo.  There’s probably a few more brands that I can’t remember!  It was about 12 years ago I switched over from Northwave to ThirtyTwo, and I was a huge fan of Northwave/Drake, so this was a major shift in what I had ridden before. I tried on several boots from many companies and I remember trying on the ThirtyTwo Lashed and I was instantly hooked!  I rode the Lashed boot for almost 6 seasons, and they were comfortable and forgiving — a real freestyle boot that I would also highly recommend if you want a softer flex.  I’m not one for BOA systems, or fast track lace ups; I really like a traditional lace up boot.

The TM-Two fit the bill for my style of riding all mountain, park, and pipe. I have a wider and flat foot, and ThirtyTwo seems to make a wider boot so that is something to take note of. As the aging process kicked in, I realized I needed a more supportive boot, and I have a great amount of respect for Sole Technology (ThirtyTwo’s parent company, also responsible for sister brands Etnies, éS Footwear, Emerica, and Altamont). ThirtyTwo is truly a rider-driven company, and is truly focused on your feet. I love their product, and I knew I could find several boots in the line that would fit my needs.  I remember trying the Prion, Prime, and

The TM-Two was the winner, and I’ve never looked back.  As ThirtyTwo has stated, there is a reason why this boot is the team favorite; it’s supportive, and with a medium-stiff flex it’s still perfect for park/pipe and it is awesome in the backcountry. I’ve never really had to heat mold my boots, but having the option for a custom fit rules.  I’ve always felt these boots were comfortable in any situation, their gel cushion system provides ample protection from impacts, and really I don’t want to take them off immediately after riding. I could wear them around après for hours! These boots are true to ThirtyTwo’s mantra: they are lightweight, supportive, and provide a secure fit. I would recommend visiting the ThirtyTwo site and check out the reviews; the TM-Two gets top marks all the way around by everyone who’s put them on their feet.

I love these boots, and I hope you do too. Let us know if you try them out or are currently riding them; we’d love to know what you think too.

Here’s my summary of pros and maybe one con, but really these boots rock all the way around!

Pros

  • Supportive medium/stiff flex
  • Good cushioning and protection on hard landings
  • Strong lasting construction – 14/15 TM-Two’s have held up great to almost 50 days of riding this year
  • Superb heel hold
  • Lightweight, the standard in ThirtyTwo boots
  • Easy to put on and take off
  • Toe bed is true to size
  • Responsive to any riding (groomers, powder, kickers, rails, this boot rules them all)
  • Stylish
  • Break in easily (really they are great on the first day, no break-in period in my opinion)
  • Integrates great with all my bindings, meaning: TM Two boots + bindings = awesome!

Cons

  • If I had to point anything out (and I’m really reaching for something), traction could be slightly better; I have been able to use these hiking up very icy pipes and even several-hour hikes in the backcountry

 

 

Style: (5.0 / 5)
Comfort: (4.0 / 5)
Overall: (4.5 / 5)

  1. I’m looking to buy my first pair of boots, and want something to last. I’m gonna be living in Antarctica for 18 months so a lot of back country riding and need something warm!

    Do you recommend I splash the extra £50 for the TM or go with the lashed? I’m worried as a first boot they might be too stiff as I do like to jib and butter around

    Cheers

    1. Hi Zac,
      Sounds like you’re in for an adventure in Antarctica, good luck and have fun! I rode the Lashed for several years, they are much softer than the TM-Two’s and like the TM-Two’s they break in quickly. Both are great boots, and I prefer the TM-Two where I felt I needed a more performance boot for every type of riding I was doing (Park, All Mountain, and Backcountry) the TM-Two is stiffer, as Thirtytwo says: it’s a good “combination of stability, comfort and flex, for transition from park to backcountry,” It sounds like the TM-Two would work well for your Antarctica trip, they’ll break in nicely and be supportive, but allow you to have the flexibility to butter and jib, I do that a-lot with my TM-Two’s so I would say it’s worth the extra £50!
