Well which problem do you think would be worse using columbia winter boots or having my foot stick off a couple inches off the board cause I've heard that can be bad too

out of all the things related to snowboarding...boots should be well tried out before purchasing.

dont go cheap on boots you will hate life when u bought a nice setup and u cant ride it cuz ur feet are getting sodomized. be patient with boots and dont jump the gun. try out as many as possible to find the PERFECT ones

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless

You'd be better off to get snowboard boots in the long run but for a couple days your Columbia ones should do. If its more than an inch of toe overhang it can get annoying when you go to carve sharp corners, but a little bit is fine.

what u r referring to is toe drag. that may occur if ur wearing a size 13 boot on a narrow board.
hence the creation of wide boards.

typically an inch over the edge will not be a problem. u can always adjust the bindings to compensate for this

I haven't had any problems with boots bought online and you can return them if you do.
