low profile boots?

I am like a borderline big foot rider with a 10.5 burton freestyle and i have felt like i may have out grown this boot since i now realize it is super flexy, but it is very comfy. i was just wondering if ne people out there know of some nice lower profile boots that i should be checking out cause i don't want ne nasty toe/heel drag. =)

thx in advance

don't know if they are touted as low profile, but when I was trying on boots, the burton Ions seemed pretty low profile, were pretty stiff, but felt super comfy. Real nice boot, but pretty pricey. I didn't go with them cause I opted for some boas, but they felt real nice.

32's.

But I wouldn't worry about toe drag with 10.5 unless you're riding a narrow board. Buying some LOWPRO boots will only bring the footprint down maybe to a 10. Not much help. So if your current boots are still comfy, I suggest replacing them only when they are no longer comfy.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I would say anything under about a 24.8- 25.0 for your foot size.

10.5 isn't borderline wide profile, on modern gear that line isnt drawn until about size 12.

Ive got 10.5 `09 Rulers and could ride my 158 with angles of 0/0 and have no drag issues.

Burton Custom `09 158 and Cartel Bindings.

Boots are `09 Burton Rulers.

the 09 rulers are suposed to be smaller though, the burton "shrinkage" tech says a 10.5 would be a 9.5

notice ne difference in size of outside of boot?
