In a perfect world, I'd be able to try on these boots.

I'm looking for new boots, I have to size up the boots I have now are squishing my toes..plus I WANT new boots lol.

My local stores dont seem to have the inventory I'm looking for, In a perfect world, I'd try on the following boots. Notes: K2 Maysis fit well, and are comfy. Nike ZF1 fit well (store didnt have my size). Wideish, flatish feet.

Burton Imperial
Burton Ion
Nike Lunarendor
Nike Zoom Kaiju
K2 Maysis
Salomon F4.0


I want to take a leap of faith and just order one set off the internet and see how I fair.

What do you guys think!?

I have similar feet to you and went for this years Burton Imperial. Very comfy and warm boot. However, I had to go a size up than my shoe size as the roof in the toe area was putting pressure on my front foot and causing pain. Also the big toes were curling slightly so I would recommend go at least a half size up on these.

As I say though, when they fit they are a great low profile boot with good response for all mountain tom foolery.

If you know what fits, comfy and responsive to your riding...why settle for less or a maybe? Ya I try on different brands/models occasionally, but I continue with the same brand and general model for the past 5-6 years.

Or order all the above, select 1 and return the rest.

Having a similar issue feet wise I would vote to find somewhere local or if you can afford to order 2 or 3 off the net and return

I have had issues forever finding the "right" boot. I am rockin the LunarEndors now. They are comfy and the toe box is decent. I went a half size down. I am a 12 but went with a 11.5

I have short, wide feet, like a hobbit. I ordered about ten pairs of various 7 and 7.5 and 7.5W online. None fit. I ended up with size 8 Lunarendors and love them. (They might be packing out a touch - wish maybe I had 7.5 if they make them.) Nikes are traditionally narrow so they usually aren't great for wide feet, but sizing up managed to work.

So sizing down to an 11.5 wearing a 12 running shoe, how did you feel?

Do you have any toe cramming? my biggest issue is my toes.

I had a 12 originally and felt they may be a tad to big. I went to the 11.5 and my toes are touching the end of the boot. Foot feels secure like a firm handshake. I like the tighter fit of the 11.5. They are touching but not curling or crammed in there.

i have no experience with any of these boots but i actually like to go a size up. i wear 10.5 size shoe and prefer an 11 boot. last year i ordered boots in a 10.5 online and they were a little too tight. they cut off the circulation in my toes just a little bit. didn't feel like returning them because i wanted to keep riding instead of waiting a couple weeks for the exchange to go through. but this year i haven't had that problem yet. i haven't snowboarded as much this year but maybe i just broke them in a little bit from last year. i dont know. but next time im going with an 11.

EDIT: the 10.5 boots that i wear are Rome boots
