Everyone is going to tell you to get boots that fit. My 32 Lashed are fucking tits.
After all this pain you going to buy based on internet recommendations? Go try them on.
Most boot discussion is moot, either buy from someone who knows how to fit, goto a bootfitter, whatever, its a specific and important process. The only useful information here is some basic brands to shoot for.
Yes Nike, Salomon, also try K2 and Burton. Maybe you NEED BOAS or maybe you need to go BACK to laces.
is it late october yet?
