Default need help deciding

Hi all,

I need to buy my first snowboarding boots. i found a great deal on the burton moto 2014 for 114 $ but i have a couple of questions. first of all i cant try the boots on (i have to buy them online) and my friend will get them to me when he comes to my country. my feet a very wide in the front and usually boots are tight there so anyone had these boots before? are they very tight in the front of the foot or are they acceptable for wide feet?

my snowboarding level is basically i can link turns comfortably i started jumping (on flat ground though not kickers) and i started going on boxes.

any advice on the boots? any advice will be great

Burton's are not known to fit wide feet or least they don't fit my wide feet.

Try DC , ThirtyTwo, K2, & Salomon as they fit wider feet guys.

^ this.

I have the same issue with Burton boots...they are too narrow for me.

Add Rome boots to that list.

I'm having luck with my burton hails now that they're breaking in and I have some pretty wide feet. However, I tried on a few pairs of lower end Burtons and echo what these guys are saying. So make sure that wherever you're buying them from has a smooth return policy.

Lots of people wear Motos I think they're one of the most popular boot. I hated mine, they were like torture devices. I didn't realise how comfy boots could be till I changed to Salomon. Your feet are different to mine though.
