Boots hunting

So I bought a 2013 K2 Raygun and a 2014 Ride Revolt binding this past season and now I was looking for a boots that fit well with my set.

I'm thinking about Ride Jackson since it got pretty good review it make sense that ride binding go with ride boots. However I found that K2 Raider and Buton Ruler are also not bad are they got better prices.

So what will you guys buy? Or any other suggestion? I normally do all mountain instead of park.
thanks

Buy whatever boots fit your feet properly there's no point me telling you what boots I find comfortable because your feet are probably a totally different shape so what fits me might not fit you. Head to a shop and try on a load till you find some that fit. As for boots matching bindings it doesn't matter as long as you boots fit in them ok, I wear nike boots and have ride, union and salomon bindings.

Go and try on as many boots as you can by working with a good boot fitter. Don't make the mistake of buying boots online because it could or couldn't fit properly and then your next posts will be about either:

1) heel lift
2) foot pain

^ That's your problem, buy boots that fit your feet, not a certain brand because they'll magically somehow work better with the bindings...

No need to match gear.
