Try wearing size 14s. no one local carries them so I'm pretty much stuck ordering. so far things have come out okay but I'm sure I'll eventually have to return a pair.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

LOLs!

I remember it took me 2 weeks to find the boot I wanted!

I just spent three weeks searching for the best boot. Multiple shops, multiple hours, multiple boots lol. Finally settled on a pair of K2 Darko boots.

I've been in the market for 2 months...everytime my girlfriend and I went somewhere I always scoped out what shops were in the area and went boot finding. It paid off in the end.

I've been using them since last year, at least once a week being that I'm about an hour away from mountain creek. Not one problem with them, not one complaint. Excellent boot IMO

seriously, I rode f20's for my first two years until they died. then i tried another pair of f20's and they became very soft very quick, then i tried slx, they were torture on my feet, then i tried the solomon pledge, were pretty good but not perfect. im looking into nike's now
