If you are going with Burton, definately go with the Cartels over the Missions. Although, I have heard that the cartel forward lean is a problem for some but I haven't ridden them myself (only played with them at the shop). So if you don't like a lot of forward lean you may want to go with the Missions or a different route all together.
I've got Rome 390s and like them a lot. I chose them over both the Missions and Cartels after a lot of research and fiddling at the shops. The 390s are a little softer than the Burton's, but I like the straps better, they are more adjustable, and they just felt like they were built better (I don't know if they really are). The comformist toe strap is great as a cap strap and seems better than the Burton's IMO.
I don't know much about the other optoins, but have heard rave reviews about the Union Force. Althought I don't think their toes strap works as well as a cap if you are looking for that. The Romes seems to have the best toe strap in the business.
