Boots for boyfriend for Xmas...help!
 
So I want to buy my "boyfriend" boots for Christmas. I know near to nothing about snowboarding and wanted some opinions. He has a Forum board (it's blue, black and white). I was thinking of getting him Burton boots? Or is that like a no-no to mix around brands? Should I get Forum boots? He has a black Burton jacket. My ex boyfriend did motocross and they'd be called a goon or whatever for wearing certain stuff. I was thinking black boots too maybe? He has grey snowboarding pants. Maximum price would be $200. He's going on a big snow boarding trip after Christmas. Help please lol.

Get him a gift certificate.

Boots are one of those things that have to fit perfect. They're not a fashion item, they're arguably one of the most important pieces of functional equipment for boarding.

True that! My first fitting was way off and wrong! Now I am stuck with a pair of boots that dont fit.

Gift card for sure! He needs to try on a bunch of boots and find the one that fits his foot best. It's not a one boot fits all kind of deal. $200 will buy him a really nice boot. :thumbsup:

Ok thanks guys! I mean if I don't get him boots he will be renting a pair wherever he is going. I think I'll bring him to our local Burton shop as a surprise!

Yea. He will love that shit for sure. I know I would.

Or I'll buy him a pair and give him the receipt so he can go and return them if he needs to before he leaves. I like having an actual gift to give instead of a gift card.

Yea my girl is they same way. This is the only problem I see about that, is he will be super excited about them and probably just use them instead of returning them to see if it is actually the perfect fit. :dunno:

You're an awesome GF by the way.:D

Have a sister?:giggle:

Ya true, hopefully he won't! I will tell him if he needs to return them to go right ahead! He doesn't snowboard often (a few times during the winter), but he is not a beginner boarder so I think any boot would be better than the ones he would have to rent!
