Default most comfortable boots?

last season i picked up a pair of the DC Phase park boots, and i gotta say they are super uncomfortable. i have semi skinny feet so i get a lot of heel lift...the boot cant seem to wrap around my heel at all. i also get pressure in certain parts of my feet, especially over the edges of the outside toes and in the calf area. i didnt spend too much money on these boots so im not totally dissapointed, but now im in the market for some super comfy boots.

does anyone have any input on good boots? especially for narrower feet
as long as i can shred in comfort, i dont mind spending a couple hundred bucks

Hard to say, since with boots what is comfy for one might but uncomfy for another, and vice versa.
I found the Vans Danny Kass boots really comfortable, but ended up buying some Rome Libertines which were the most comfortable for me, albeit a little on the soft side for my preference.

For skinny feet check out the Salomon Dialogue, it's a bit narrower than most other models (since they also make a wide version of that boot) and it's great quality too.

Solomon, Ride and DC are boots usually recommended to the narrow footed. I am normal-wide and love Northwaves!

32's are made for Fred Flintstone feet and you can put a butterfly wrap, jbar, o ring, or whatever in any boot. Go try on some boots and see what actually fits you.

I have Salomon F24's and they are best boots I have ever owned. They are even more comfortable than some basketball/tennis shoes I've had...and I love their low profile given my shoe size (12). You might want to check out their line.

I have narrow feet and found the vans BFB's are a perfect fit.
