i will give a write in suggestion for the brand celsius,model cirrus. its a small company making sick sick boots. they are rated a 7/10 on what i consider to be the most accurate boot stiffness scale in the market. the cirrus's are also in transworlds top 15 boots of the year. they are comparable in weight to last years 32 lashed(not this years with the styrofoam cup sole that will wear down from walking across the parking lot.) they run pretty true to size if not a tad small, i wear a 10.5 and they seem like a 10.75ish lol. my only problems, if you can even say that, is that they are like physically like taller over your actual foot so you have to adjust your binder straps or get new bindings in my case(i had med bindings that went to 11, but wouldnt fit the boot.) not talking about the actual height of the boot, im just not sure what you would call it...last but not least they look fressshhh. now im definetly not the "down with burton" person seeing as i have a burton board, bindings, coat, and pants but i dont really like there boots, they just dont feel right to me, i feel like boots are the most important part of a setup and i have a better experience leaving it to boot companies like 32, celsius, dc, etc...

also available in boa or lace...i dont like boa either if that matters whatsoever lol
