Default need some help with boots

I am looking into buying a pair of boots but don't know which to buy. I was looking at Burton Hail or the Burton Freestyle. How are those two boots for all mountain riding. 70% groomers , trail, trees 30% park. If yall have any other opinions of boots better suited for my type of riding will be greatly appreciated.

I have the Burton Freestyles and they are great all around boots. The perfect stiffness and are really comfortable.

i tried on both and but both were comfortable, a couple people told me they are primarilly used for park riding. i really dont know, and that is why i am here. And let me tell you brodda that i definatly am not the one to match all my gear. I cant afford all that shit!
i just want to know what people think about these two pairs, and if they know any boots that they like or what might be best suitable for my type of riding i do. Thanks for any help

I think both are rather soft so for mostly freeride you might want something stiffer. Although it is really all about preference. I tend to like a stiffer boot, but that's me. I'd try on more than 2 pairs before buying.

Also, think about the type of lacing system you like since there are many different kinds now. Burton has the "speed lacing" which uses little pull coards instead of normal laces. Other brands have the boa which is a twist nob with wire laces. Or you can just use standard laces. I like the boa best, but again, that's just me.
