boots-- stiffness/flexibility vs fit
I'm getting boots for my wife for her birthday. She's been boarding on and off for about 10 years. She's late 30's, likes to just cruise-- no jumps, definitely no moguls, no park. We're in So Cal, so mostly riding at Big Bear and Mammoth. She's tried a lot of boots on-- the most comfortable for her are the Burton Lodi. These boots are apparently a little more on the flexible side than she would necessarily want for just carving turns down the mountain all day, but they feel the best on her feet. So, here's my question: Which is more important-- the fit of the boot or having a boot that's the right stiffness for the kind of riding she does? Thanks in advance for any help.
