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.

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.

check out Thirty-Two's Ultralight boot... had em since last year and they are crazy light... feels like theres nothing on your feet. Not only that, but theyre super comfortable and warm.

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
