i ride the f20's from '07. they may ride a bit high, but there's some flex there so you can still be agile. my only gripe with them is that my feet are a bit wide and it's a pretty snug fit by my toes. the only boots i have to compare is the burton customs, which i prefer the f20's to, hands down. dunno about the dialogues. if you've got a nearby store that carries them, give them a go, first.
