Qustion about buying boots

Im trying to get into snowboarding and relize how important boots are. I'm going to be going to a shop soon and trying on a bunch. I don't have a board or bindings yet. If I find a pair that fit and I like would I be able to use them with any bindings/board?

Sort of? There are certain things that come into play when sizing boots and boards. Typically, board width isn't a mega huge concern as long as you don't have giant stompers, or are going for the ultra tiny sized board.

I have normal 10.5 feet. Nothing huge.

Would it be safe to buy a pair of boots if I found some I liked or wait and just buy everything at once?

get the boots if they fit. you can definitely ride a normal width board with a 10.5 shoe.

Agreed, with a 10.5 you will be able to ride pretty much any board you want. Proper boot fit is key and will definitely make for a more enjoyable day of riding.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.
