Buy something from last season for half off. Then you can get rapage boots for like 120 at the least!

Ok, when it comes to boots, its all about how stiff you want them. This is all considering your going to buy a rapage boot anyways on sale (unused, thats the beauty of after season sales). First thing is to only focus on how stiff you want the boot to be at first comfortable to your foot. Just make a list of boots that interest you. From there, go try them on at your local shop if they have them, and decide which ones are most comfortable for you to wear. Heres a generic list of your boot flex and what their dominantly designed for.

Park= Soft boot
Freeriding= mildly stiff boot / stiffer boot (depending on how intense of a speed demon you are)
Allmountain= mildly stiff boot
Powder and racing = stiff boot

Just take that into consideration and then you will have many options availible to you. Most boots in the same flex category and at the same price range (give or take 30 dollars for new boots) will all perform almost identically. Its just your choice on which ones are most comfortable for your foot at that point.

Not an owner. Just a humble employee in the product placement department

I'm here as a fellow snowboarder and it's just happenstance that I work for a snowboard company. I actually didn't realize that we sold snowboards when I saw the job listing. I applied then researched and found out about the awesomeness ahead

Keep shopping at dogfunk if you're happy with them. I don't make any sort of commission or even get a pat on the back for selling anything. I'm here to give and receive advice, to chat and debate, to offer up any deals we have, and to have fun

If we have an unbeatable offer, great! If not, then I hope someone else does so you can go shred with a smile

Well if you are looking for new from a shop then have a look at the ThirtyTwo Prion. I just got a pair since I am getting back into riding but didn't want to spend a ton of money. They really seem nice thus far.

Take your $150 budget and set aside $50 for inserts for your flat feet. Superfeet, Sole(what I use), and Remind seem to be mentioned here often.

Thank me later

thanks guys. i'm going to the shop tomorrow and i'll look around. but my budget like depleted to 80ish because my dad is going to buy them now. i wish i could buy online, though. they don't carry much, more like burton, k2 and airwalk.

i was hoping it score some rome timberlines, but oh well.
