I have been riding for about 11 years and am really into technical tree riding and have used a pretty soft boot for the past 4 or 5 years. I just bought the Burton Motos and they seem to be way to stiff for me because I had to leave them quite loose for me to make the tight turns in the trees. They felt great when riding down a groomer due to their great support and they worked really well with my bindings, but I am wondering if someone here can point me in a better direction for a boot that will offer great cushion for binding straps and offer enough ankle flexibility to tighten the boots enough to keep my foot from sliding around in the boot.
I also don't know if I just need to adjust my riding style to accommodate the added stiffness or wait to see what these will feel like after they are broken in. Any suggestions would be great.
