You really need to try on a few different boots before you make a boot decision. I got the burton moto boots....and on my first day of boarding I almost gave it up. They were a nightmare. The fit was so wrong in so many ways. They came up to high on my leg, made my feet go numb, cramped my entire foot. They were just wrong....so incredibly wrong for me and for my foot and leg. I hated them. But that was ME. They were not a good fit for my foot or leg. I ended up having to buy a new set of boots. I tried on several and found that a pair of Sims Omen boots were the ones for me. Best $150 I could have spent.

The point is that boots are super important, and you need to try on a few pairs and really hang out in them for 10 mins or so to find out how they feel. I would also buy from a place with a good return policy.

I am a super new rider...but, boots is something I spent a whole lot of time and research on.
