Today, I went down to my local shop to try on some boots, with the intention of buying online later. I tried on a pair of size 12 ride boots, they were too cramped, and the size 12 DC Judge boots were good, except they really pinched my big toe. I'm looking at sierra's page for boots right now, and would love to buy some on sale... Snowboard Boots - Men's Snowboard Boots
The shop I went to (Peter Glenn) is the only one in town that had boots, I went to used sporting goods places but they had nada. I ride a size 13 liquid soft flex right now and want to go to a medium flex. The liquid boots fit me pretty damn well at that size, and my standard shoe size is a 13 (12 in a converse hi-top but they run small.) Anyone know how burton/forum boots compare in size? I'd like to but on sale and not spend $$$ on the 2010 stuff when it's full retail at the beginning of next season. Help!
I'm riding a pair of 2007 Burton Rulers. I tried them on in a store before buying them online at sierrasnowboard.com...good thing too, because they run small. I normally wear a size 12 in street shoes, but had to move up to a size 13 with the Rulers. I like 'em though. Medium flex, light-weight, and very comfortable to both ride and walk in. The speed lacing system takes a bit getting used to though...getting them on is easy, but it must have taken me at least 10 minutes to get them off the first time
A note of caution though-- In my personal experience, Burton is inconsistent in their boot sizing...not all models run small. I bought my wife a pair of 2006 Burton Freestyles and they fit true-to-size.
