^this is a good idea too.
IDK i haven't tried more than 3 brands of boots but to me there is not too much diff.

When I started riding almost 20 years ago, pac-boots were in common use as an alternative to snowboard boots, particularly for beginners wanting to forestall the expenditure on snowboard specific boots. Though I almost never see them on the hill anymore, there's no reason they can't still be used until you can afford to get a pair of geniune snowboard boots. I used pac-boots for two seasons before I got a second hand pair of Burton Comp's. Just be aware that pac-boots are very soft and don't offer the support of snowboard specific boots. The control level won't be the same and injury risk could be higher. You can use a utility knife to shave the heel and toe lug off to help with overhang issues. Worked for me. This photo is from my way-back collection. Burton anorak, European surplus wool pants, and LaCrosse pac-boots.
