Yeah what he said, my sneakers are Nike and Adidas, my snowboard boots are Salomon Synapse. When I upgraded from Burton Motos it was a revelation. More fun and control, less pain and sadness. Its worth getting the right boots above any other bit of kit.
The type of riding you do will affect which boots are best for you. I tried the Nikes but the were too soft - even box fresh - for my personal preference.
