You probably want to go with Burton binders since you are on a Burton board. There are companies that have paid for the license to us the 3d pattern, but not a ton of them have. As far as the boots go. Burton boots have a rep of breaking down quicker and being softer than a lot of their counter parts from other companies. If the boot fits you great, then fine, but you certainly don't need to stick to only Burton boots. In fact I would consider it a huge mistake to stick with them if the boot doesn't fit your foot well. This is where the brick and mortar store should make a difference. I would go to your shop and try several different boots from 3-4 companies. Don't bother with DC boots, they kind of suck. Vans, Salomon, K2, Celsius, and even big B make good boots. Regardless, try a few pairs on from different companies to find out who fits your foot best.
