I had the dialogues several years back and absolutely loved everything about them...but they packed out within 2 seasons (was riding a ton then). Bought same size dialogues after that and they were HUGE...hated them. I realized Soloman boot sizes change every year! Returned the dialogues and bought the F20...after a change of insoles, have a boot with which I'm quite satisfied (rub my Achilles tendon, but gets better the more I wear them).
Also live in the boonies...one hr drive to nearest real snowboard shop and, even then, their stock is limited. The good thing about that shop is I learned enough about boot fitting (from actual, experienced snowboarders) to know what to look for in a well fitting snowboard boot.
Where I live, only way I can get the boot brands/models I want is to buy online. I bought and returned 4 sets of different model boots before I found the F20s. Don't remember the store I bought from (evo?), but seem to remember the returns were either "free" or cheap...time consuming, but not too bad experience, overall.
