Burton Hail vs DC Park (boots)

I'm in the market for new boots for this season since my current boots are starting to rip. I've pretty much narrowed it down to the DC Park boots and the Burton Hail boots. I focus mainly on park (about 80% of my time), so can anyone with any experience with either chime in with some advice? I've hear DC is known for comfortable boots, I haven't tried on either yet so I plan on doing that sometime soon.

Also something unrelated, I've had a pair of burton custom binding which I've used for one season (about 20 trips to the mountain) and I'm thinking about new bindings for this season. Would it be worth it to buy burton Triads or just stick out another season with the customs and wait until next year?

While I dont frequent the park at all, my Hails are INCREDIBLY comfortable and INCREDIBLY warm.

i havent tried the hails but i have the DC park boots. if you get them for under $60(which i did) i would recommend them. the durability isnt that great, but they are really comfortable. well semi-comfortable. i dont know why but my let food was always super snug, super warm, super comfortable, while my right foot would always fall asleep due to the lack of circulation. it wasnt cause i tied them too tight but rather that cushion on the bottom of the tongue pushing down on my toes. if its a slight push its super good like my left boot, too much and it sucks. maybe 5/10

no.
