i prefer a mid to soft flex boot, and just picked up a new pair of Hails this season, wore them around the house a few days and to the mtn. once so far.
Very comfortable and light, my biggest + is that they fit nice and the outside dimensions are very compact which helps when ur like me and wear a sz13
like you said, try em on, go with whats comfortable
Yeah I tried them on the other night and walked around a little bit in them, they felt super comfortable. Alot of padding. Just need to find a correct size I was in such a rush I couldnt figure it out.
