I use Mentors from a couple years back and am pretty happy with them. (I also ride NS boards with minimal park time) They're very comfortable and supportive, though the base was a little bit more flexible than I was expecting. It looks like they might have changed the design of the baseplate, the one in the link appears to be one piece whereas mine are split in the middle to allow you to adjust between two different widths. I assume since you ride a TX you've got big feet, so I'd try to find out what the length of the baseplate is to make sure they're not too short for your boots. Mine are size XL, but if they didn't adjust out to the wider setting I don't think I'd be able to use them.
