Default Newbie needs advice on boots

In the end, I was debating between the 32 STW BOA and the Lashed. Although I loved the idiot proof ease of the BOA, the single BOA did not fit right (good fit on the foot, but too loose around the ankle/calf). Unfortunately, there were no double BOA boots to try on. I eventually settled on the 32 Lashed (with laces) for $150.

I'm just glad that I never have to wear uncomfortable rentals again! Thanks to everyone for their help.
Ull enjoy the lashed boots! Like he said give em a good few to break in they will be stiff....i usually wear my molds around on a day off for a few hrs to mold them to my feet!
