I just got new boots from sierra. Walked into the store and tried on every pair they had in my size. Didn't even look at price, the guy just sized me and pulled every boot they had that fit. I'd put one boot on one foot, then a different boot on the other. I would then stand up see how they felt, leaned into them like I was doing a toe side carve, etc. Whichever boot I liked better, I kept on and put a new boot on my other foot and repeated the process till I tried em all. Then I put the winner on both feet and repeated the process to be sure that one foot didn't differ from the other.
If i were you I'd also keep an open mind to both boa and speed lacing. My new boots and former boots are both speed lacing and the rentals I've used were boa's. The dual boa is much nicer then the single IMO. However, I found all three types of lacing to be much easier to lace up, get tighter and more consistent then traditional lacing.
