Some initial thoughts: Deeluxe Visious were one recommendation, Burton Ruler would probably be fairly inexpensive and easy to find.
If you like Burton I tried some Imperials on yesterday that I would've got if they'd had them 1/2 size smaller.
Ended up with a pair of Burton Ambush boots instead. It's my 3rd pair (this season), I keep changing my mind and taking them back. Started with Salomon Dialogues, were too big. Both size wise and no RP. They barely fit in my large formulas. Then F2.0's. Much better than Dialogues, but too narrow.
I tried on some 32's as well. A couple of different styles. The Imperials were my fav. Thinking about taking these back too and ordering the Imperials online... These Ambush are super comfy but I'm thinking they may be too soft for freeride for a n00b on Shames (little grooming, intermediate to advanced terrain) Kind of worried about a lack of response in a soft boot.
