Going to buy new boots this week- which is the best from this list (local shop)

do im going to goldstocks or galaxy sports, a couple local shops, to look for snowboard boots this week. my budget is $150 and my shoe is size 12.

2010 Burton Moto
2010 Burton Invader
2010 Vans Mantra
2010 Salomon Fraction
edit: i also found some 09 head classics in their outlet, but the size is 12.5- how would that do? they are only $70...
they need to go on a pair of 09 burton custom bindings. my riding style is more on the freestyle side because im going to start heading to the park this year. thanks!

2011 Never Summer Revolver-R 156

Again, it way more important to buy a boot that fits well rather than a specific model. All of those boots you have listed will fit differently, buy the one that is the best fit for your foot.

thanks. i just cant find much info on them. like which is a more freestyle boot?

also burtonx8, is it true that it is better to get burton boots and bindings because they match up better?

I recently picked up the Invaders. I haven't had a chance to go out and ride in them yet (haven't gotten my board yet), but around the house they are real comfortable. Unfortunately, I can't compare them to the others though. I'm sure it's partly marketing hype, but Burton does say that the Moto is the best selling boot ever. If this is true, there must be a reason...
