Buy something from last season for half off. Then you can get rapage boots for like 120 at the least!

Ok, when it comes to boots, its all about how stiff you want them. This is all considering your going to buy a rapage boot anyways on sale (unused, thats the beauty of after season sales). First thing is to only focus on how stiff you want the boot to be at first comfortable to your foot. Just make a list of boots that interest you. From there, go try them on at your local shop if they have them, and decide which ones are most comfortable for you to wear. Heres a generic list of your boot flex and what their dominantly designed for.

Park= Soft boot
Freeriding= mildly stiff boot / stiffer boot (depending on how intense of a speed demon you are)
Allmountain= mildly stiff boot
Powder and racing = stiff boot

Just take that into consideration and then you will have many options availible to you. Most boots in the same flex category and at the same price range (give or take 30 dollars for new boots) will all perform almost identically. Its just your choice on which ones are most comfortable for your foot at that point.
