Boots for a small foot

I'm looking into getting Celcius or 32s. I have tried 32s in the past and they have a fat foot print, which makes for an odd fit in most bindings. I ride Burton Triads, but don't care for Burton boots much. I have a size 8 foot and wear from 7-8 boot sizes. I have a really hard time finding boots in my size. Anyway, suggestions on boots that would fit Triads nicely? I currently ride Burton Rulers, but I hate them. They compact like a whole size and are hella heavy.

Anyone ride Salmons, 32s, Celcius or Ride boots that wanna comment on them, please? Did 32 change their footprint? I heard they did. Also heard 32 makes Ride boots, this true?

Celsius is supposed to make some rad boots but they don't make anything nearly big enough for me so I will never know.

I suggest you check out the Vans Veil boot.

Nike also has a new boot out that's supposed to be sick, but again they don't make em big enough for me so I will never know.

Never heard anything about 32 making Ride boots.... But I have heard the quality of 32 boots is sometimes not the best.

Ride has some very forward thinking tech going into there boots and you very well could find what you want in that brand...

I would suggest checking into Vans personally as I love my Vans Cirro

I got small feet, shoe size 7,

idk, salomon are supposed to fit small feet

Got 32's but generally size down 1/2 or a full size or use footbed inserts to in my 32 305 men's size 7... and this year picked up some size 8 women's focus boas which are about a 1/2 size smaller and will still probably need some footbeds or butterflies on the liner to take up some of the space and for packing out.

Yeah, I've been thinking I might have to settle for Celcuis Cloud 9, womens boots in a size 8.5 (7 mens). I can't find any shops that carry a mens boot below size 8.

You can find rare sizes at backcountry.com, but you obviously couldn't try those on before buying. Good news is backcountry has a great return policy.

It sucks to have small feet. I wear a size 4 in women's. Try finding THAT size anywhere.

I wasn't Asian the last time I checked. I'm just a small person. 4'11" tall. Thus my screen name: lilfoot

Hehe. I gotcha. I think I can actually thank the Asian ladies for the boots that CAN be found in my size. Burton makes some boots in a size 4, Asian fit only. Whatever that means.

Wow. 14's eh? Hopefully you have some height to even those suckers out.

I can count on just one hand the number of adult boots made in my size that suit my riding style. Just bought a pair of Salomon boots, size 4 that are like 1/2 centimeter too big. D'oh! So close! But for now, they'll have to do.
