Default What type of boots do you use for your snowboarding style.

I'm going to get my first boots soon, and I was wondering what kind of boots do you wear and for what style. I'm planning on doing to some all-mountain/freeriding so I was thinking about getting either some soft boots with a little stiffer inside then freestyle boots, or some hybrid step-ins

Stiffer works better in backcountry and deep pow. Softer is better for park. If you get a midflex boot (like my new Cirro) you can do a little of both.

well yeah, it's always important to make sure they fit correctly, and don't cause pressure points

I'll just go ahead and also list the board I plan on using
It's a Nitro Magnum, I'm about 6' 5" and about 200 lbs so I'm planning on either a 161 or a 165 and a size 14 shoe(possibly a 13 boot) so I'm definitely going to need a wide board
