Recommend me some boots

Looking for new boots to go with my 2011 machete and cartel bindings. Tried on the ride insanoes last season and liked the feel of them cause I've got a narrow heel. Would prefer a boa system just for convenience purposes.

Boots can't really be recommended as everyones feet are different, and size and fit will differ so much from person to person...!!!

You need to visit a shop to get some real idea of what fits and what doesn't...

Or i could just say, well i really like the vans aura, they are excellent and fit me really well...

Well then, looks like you found your boot. Now just make sure they fit properly.

How much do you find boots pack out. 10.5 are snug but not painful, 11 are comfy. Any thoughts

they will pack out at least half a size so if the 10.5 is good and no pain, then get those.

Can't speak for the Insano, but the Burton Rulers I picked up at the start of the year were painfully tight, even after heat molding. Toes curled even when standing crouched. Yet they packed out to a perfect fit after like one day riding.
