Boots: Double Boa...Where?

Hello,

Well from what I been reading most people enjoy BOA more then just regular boots...

I'm just wondering does anyone know where I can find them? In Toronto (Canada) I've been to sportinglife, Sign of a skiier and some other "bigger" retail locations and they don't carry any...

Because, I don't want to purchase online and find out the boot does not fit me and hurt my feet.

So if anyone knows where they are sold it would be great...

and should I just consider buying a single BOA because it is sold at a lot more places....???

Google 'dual boa snowboard boots'.
Make a note of the hits.
Go to the mfg website.
Find the dealers in your area.

You'll get much farther than asking us where you can find boots in your area without actually naming a boot.

I just ordered a pair last night from Daddies, they were 33% off, and in my size (14).

The "Double Boa" system is called Focus. Google Boa Focus.

I don't know much about the Boa system but I am in Toronto - you might want to try: Boardsports, Boardzone, Hogtown and So Hip it Hurts and see if they have what you are looking for. I would call first though before just showing up as I have been to at least two of them recently and can't recall seeing any Boa systems at all (now I was looking at women's stuff so the selection may have been different).

Alternatively you may want to expand your horizons to speedlace boots since the main advantage to Boa's seems to be ease of tightening and the speedlaces pretty much match that advantage now. Many of them have dual zone technology so you can tighten top vs. bottom differently. You will probably have an easier time trying to find these as they are very common in Burton and Salomon boots which are carried pretty much everywhere.

Thanks, Mel.

Not 100% what boot yet...still looking around...$$ is not really too big matter...well unless if it is like $500 boots then maybe...

but around 200-300 is not a problem...

Yeah, I should look into speedlacing as well I guess...probably be around the same price range anyways

I need to stop going to these "big" retail places...

Snowboard - Boots - Men - SportChek.ca

I get sportchek discount...but not sure if these are any good input??

Give Skiis and Bikes a call. They have K2 T1's in a boa, not the double boa, though.

I'm no boot expert. Just upgraded my Burton Tribute's to Salomon F22Ws but my main concern was fit. The Tribute's were killing me and making it impossible for me to board more than a few hours at a time. I went to three or four stores and tried on everything they had in a speedlace and the end result was that the F22W's were heads and tails more comfortable for my feet. Got out for half a day on Saturday and was pleased that it felt that I could easily have kept going all day. Unfortunately my newbie friend disregarded my advice about wristguards and we spent the rest of the day in the hospital instead.

So, long story short, my completely untutored opinion is try every brand on that you can find and buy the ones that give you the maximum comfort while still keeping your heel locked in.

Wrong. Boa Focus is a Vans brand of Double Boa. Coincidentally, i's also the name of a 32 boot that only has single Boa.

That's interesting. Then why do I have DC boots that say 'BOA Focus System'?

Pump your brakes son.
