I am a fan of Northwaves, they seem to be the only boot that dont make my feet hurt and I'm on my second pair of them. But some shop owner was telling me that Northwave have been making shit since they got bought out, but I have a pair of decades that are supposed to be shit according to him and they are my favorite boots to date, in fact I would buy them again in a heart beat. So whats the story, anyone know who owns them now, or is that guy talking shit?
Northwave owns Northwave it's an independent bike shoe company that happens to make snowboarding and snowboarding accessories. Fuck it, if the boot fits wear it, best boot is the boot that fits your foot. All a boot fitter can do is guide you in the direction you need to go, not tell you what is the best boot.

can't really answer your question beyond what was already said. i believe they're an italian bike shoe company that started making boots about 20 years ago.
i bought new 09 northwave decades this year and have about 12 days on them. so far i'm loving them, super comfortable, responsive, supportive, and warm. they did pack out a bit more than i thought they would, but no biggie. i tried on the 2010s and loved 'em, but noticed they're the same as the 2009 just a different design. picked up the 2009s on brociety for 75 bucks. best deal i've gotten on any snowboarding equipment hands down.
