dont order boots online unless youve tried them on in the store.
or unless you plan on doing a bunch of returns and exchanges.

if you had searched these forums for boot topics (size, brand, etc...) you wouldn't have made this thread.
There is no way for anyone to tell you what size YOU should get in any boot. the only answer that applies to any boot size/fit/brand question is "goto the shop and try them on and get the one that fits you best"!!!

These quotes can't be emphasized enough. Even if you save some money ordering online without trying, you'll end up losing any savings by the time you finish trying an returning, trying and returning...

I bought Hails for my first season and they were comfy

That said i started to realize they were a bit too soft for my style of riding which is more or less everything but the park....

There's always a resounding "try them the fuck on" in these threads, but I have to give a nod to my Cirros.
