Default Less Heel lift

I'm going to finish the season with my Burton Moto's, but Looking to next year id like to get a better quality boot with less heel lift. Any thoughts? Is it just a fit issue no matter what boots i get?

I dunno is it? Maybe try some of the DIY mods in the sticky, or here is the link http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boo...s-faq-etc.html

There is probably a boot out there that is perfect for you, but it's pretty much down to trial and error and luck that you find it

A lot of it is fit. Some boots have extra padding near the heel to try to hold it in place. If you still get heel lift, you can always add j-bars.

Get fitted. Don't just get a boot the same size as your shoes. Number 1 no no.

J-bars will most likely solve your problem. Go to a local shop and see the boot-fitter. Let them know you have heel lift and they'll most likely slap some j-bars on the liner for you and you'll be good to go.

That being said... there is probably also a portion of this coming from the fact they are Burton Motos. I'm not trashing them, I rode them for years. But really, they're an incredibly soft and low-end snowboard boot with the most basic of liners.

And THAT being said... even expensive boots sometimes need some tweaking from a boot fitter. Higher price does not always equate to a perfect fit right out of the box.
