My bad, didn't realize you were up in Canada. So you liked both the Felix and Emerald, and you can find them both in stock? They both have the same flex rating and they have a lot of the same features, but the Felix has some extra features and they have different liners. I would go try the felix on both feet for 10 minutes, then try the Emerald on for 10 minutes. Buy the ones that feel the best. If you can't tell any difference in which one feels better, then buy the cheaper ones and use the extra money to put towards a lift ticket or some goggles or gloves or something. Or if you can't tell the difference just buy the ones you think match your board and outfit. Don't over think it, go with your gut
