Can you snowboard with regular winter boots?

Hey I just joined this forum and I was wondering since I just bought a board off craigslist and I don't have snowboard boots yet if I can just use my columbia winter boots. I just tried it in my backyard it seemed fine but I wanted to see if anyone would see any problems with that. Also I think if I was wearing snowboard boots my feet would stick off a inch or so which probably isn't good. (I wear a size 12-13 depending on brand)Thanks-Stinko

would you want to drive your car with 4 flat tires?

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

Well a major lack of support in the ankle would be a huge issue.

IDK when I tried it in my backyard it seemed fine but that's probably true maybe if i found something to insert in the boot it could keep it firmer

Don't listen to them if you are a begginer it should be fine as long as the boots have a little stiffness to them.

your all terrain colombias would flop around inside of the binding like a solder inside of a vietnamese whore.

u would prob fall out of your bindings, and not to mention u would have no control of it.

u would have no ankle support so therefore u will receive a class A transport to ur local hospital

No I can get it just as tight as I could in my old snowboard but the ankle support thing might be true I'll have to look into it.
