The hails are nice looking boots, but imo, boots arent for looks but for comfort. you'll perform better with boots that fit your feet than boots that look good on your feet.
Boot fit is NO JOKE! I made a dumb move last year buying boots that felt fine to stand in without trying them on with my board. At first I thought it was normal that after the 2nd and 3rd times riding them my feet would feel super stiff and sore. But by the 6th ride I had damaged and strained muscles in my feet and ankles so that it took two weeks of aggressive PT and chiro just to be able to walk normally in regular shoes.
