Boot Shopping - Assistance Requested
 
hey all… so, i'm working on buying some new boots later this week, and I want to make sure they're as close to perfect as I can get. I've always, always struggled with foot pain in snowboarding boots. due to an injury I stopped riding for a couple of years and sold all my gear, but I'm back, and looking for something better. previously i had a pair of burton freestyles, and they hurt my feet. I have slightly flatter feet, and when I ride I feel a lot of painful stretching and pulling through my arch. I also experience quite a bit of numbing throughout the front part of my feet when I've been riding for a bit. I want really firm support but keeping the comfort factor, obviously.

I feel like boot technology has changed quite a bit since I've been benched so any suggestions you guys have on the latest + greatest/ best boots, I'm all ears :)

thanks !!!

Try on as many boots as you can. All feet are different and will feel different in each boot.
