I just got a pair of Vans Hi-Standards and love them. They are flexy with just enough support. I spend most of my time in the park. These are by far the most comfortable boots I have owned and are the cheapest boots I ever bought. They are also surprisingly light next to my old 32 Timbas. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good park boot that can do it all at a reasonable price.

Whatever your foot falls in love with. No one can really "tell" you what to buy. I recommend going to a shop that has a large boot selection and try every single one on that they have in your size. Do not let price or brand influence you too much either. Yes there is cheap crap and way over priced crap, but really focus on the fit and feel rather than the physical appeal of the boot.

Try on as many as you can and see which one is the most comfortable and fits the best.

Like some previous posts, you have to try the boots. I wanted to buy a 32 or DC but they didn't fit at all. the last brand I tried was Salomon and it was perfect for me. Different strokes for different folks.
