Default boots... for park?

idk if theres even such thing, so i apologize if i sound like a retard.
but my question is just that is there such thing as a different boot for different styles of riding?
like i know already its boots first before bindings and everything and make sure it fits your foot well and all that so i dont need to hear that,
but im using some crappy burton tributes i bought on sale for like 80 bucks. idk i guess there decent, but is there any type of boot that would be better for an all park rider?
i have like no boot knowledge so forgive me.

yes there is different boots for styles of riding........if your riding park you will most likely want a soft/flexible boot

again, you are all OVER THINKING IT!!! While some companies may claim that a boot is "park specific" i don't see the difference between one boot from the next. While there is a difference in boots that are 100 dollars then a boot around 300, the style really shouldn't matter. Snowboarding boots are meant for well SNOWBOARDING. My advice is get a boot that is super comfy! I don't think you should have a price range when it comes to a boot. You will progress soOOOOOOO much more when you are A. Comfortable and B. Warm. When you arn't worrying about how damn cold your toes are, you can focus better on which trick you are going to slay next.

Well how do you stop your toes getting cold, I thought it was just the hire boots I had been wearing, but I decided to finish kitting myself up and got a pair of ride jack Jackson boots with boa SUPER comfy, but sometimes my toes will go, a bit funny, like cold/numb, then the nest minute their fine?

The perfect park boot look at the tweakability you can get from that thing, that sole it grips right in when you have to hike, Faux Fur for the fashion conscious. It's amazing!

Yes snowboard boots are meant for snowboarding, but that doesn't have to mean that any boot will perform optimally any situation. Cars are meant for driving, but different situations require different needs from a car. I'm sure you wouldn't want to be street racing in a Toyota Prius, just as much as you wouldn't want to drive through a few feet of snow in a rear wheel drive corvette. People who have different riding styles have different needs from their gear, and it is nice to options as far as what you want out of your gear.

32 makes some quality boots. I've been riding them for the last 3 seasons and don't have one bad thing to say about them.

Brand doesn't matter much. TRY THEM ON! Find a pair that fits nicely and has the flex/support that you need. That being said, some boot brands I have had good experience with: Salomon, 32, Rome, Vans.
