I tried on many boots.... they all killed my calves . The higher end brands all fit too wide in the foot, and too loose in the ankles. Strangely the only ones that really felt good were 5150 brand from Sport Chek.... they were cheap too. I know you get what you pay for, but the rest didn't feel good at all, especially the Burtons I had originally intended to buy. If my 5150s dont last long, I could care less, they were cheap. I set out to buy cute white Burtons.... I got black 5150's that dont match my board AT ALL, but they fit perfectly on narrow feet.
