New Snowboard Boots

I need new snowboard boots that are actually comfortable and don't mess with my toes. Any suggestions for a good pair of boots that aren't way too expensive? Like around 200.

You gotta try em on yourself. Not all of us have toe problems. Just try a crapton on regardless of brand or colorway and buy whatever fits the best.

I've tried on boots but I can't really notice the pain until I start snowboarding with them. I would just like to know a common brand that is known to have good quality.

Well, everyone has favourites.

My personal faves are Vans and Celsius.

Salomon has a great rep but I've never ridden any of their product.

If you're flat footed you might try investing in a pair of Superfeet insoles. I have a pair of Burton Freestyle boots that feel fine when walking around but when strapped in and riding they hurt A LOT. I loosened my lacing a bit and got a pair of blue Superfeet (I'm really flat footed) and the pain is gone now.

Can you get those blue superfeet insoles at like Walmart or something? Because I have Burton Freestyle boots also and I'm kinda experiencing the same thing you did. It only hurts when I start snowboarding. And I'm really flat footed just like you.
