New Boots

Since sales are good right now and I have a bit of money to spare I would like to upgrade my boots. I wear 32 prospects at the time being, but they are getting uncomfortable and the liner doesn't hold my foot in place well.
Boots I was thinking of:
thirty two lashed(better liner, heel hold etc.)
Burton ozone(light, speed lace)
and maybe a celsius boot. Anybody have a good one of theirs for someone looking for a mid-soft flex boot. I normally ride a lot of jibs and jumps up to 30 feet

stay with 32, I have had solomans, DC and burtons before, and nothing comes close to 32's in terms of comfort and weight, but then I like boardercross and "motorway boarding" only doing some lame jumps here and there so is probably looking at different kind of boots to you. Definitely try on some Boa ones, they are so good when you need to rest your feet at the cafe!!

this question is a bit silly because its not like every brand will fit you well, thats all that matters in boots really, is that they fit you. most boots are medium flex, you have to go out of your way to find really soft or really stiff ones

Go to your local shop and try every boot on you like. Fit and comfort are key so it doesn't matter if the boots are from Burton or from Bob.

if you're looking for a brand and don't care how the boots fit, then i've only heard great things about celsius. If you like a good fit, then try on every boot that you can and pick the comfiest one
