f24 has a reduced footprint too, I know they didn't make the f24 this year, I am not sure if they made them last year either. I had the 07-08 f24's and loved them, at the time they were stiffer than the f22.

Gotta throw in my vote for the Nitro Select.
Very warm, very comfortable and you can adjust the stiffness. Also, Heel hold is amazing. I've gotten some friends on them and they're fully stoked too. Didn't know this, but the boots designed by Lange who makes some of the best ski boots.

the ion felt like a cloud around my feet, but the driver x had more support, and was almost as comfortable. being a big guy support was my #1 priority.

Just doublechecked and not seeing them on their website. Weird that they would discontinue their premier/stiffest freeride boot. The K2 T1 (not DB) is their stiffest boot and has a reduced footprint too. Some boots like Vans are ginormous and would be bad news for overhang/drag.

Well they do have the Malamute now. I checked their line and that is the stiffest they are currently making.

I have a brand new pair of malamute, but won't get to use them until next week. They feel great on my feet right now but that doesn't mean much. These malamute might be stiffer than my old f24's but the footprint is a good amount bigger than the f24. With a size 14 I would probably give up on a little stiffness for a reduced footprint.

I like my 32 focus boa boots for freeride although I do not have a large foot so a smaller footprint is not a concern for me. They have held up well so far and I have no complaints. They are warm, comfortable and a pretty nice boot for just carving

Well that pretty much blows cause I just found a killer deal on last years Malamutes. I'm probably going to give them a try. If anything they will be as big as my current boots and if they don't work out I'll pick up a pair of F22s or something with a reduces footprint.

Just get the F22 and do it right the first time.
