Burton Ruler vs Ride Insano

Need advice! Torn between two boots and I just can't decide. Burton Rulers and Ride Insano. Both are the '10 versions. I am pretty much an all mountain rider. I'll do some jumps and ride a pipe/quarter if there is one but haven't done much in the way of rails/boxes. I tried them a few times this year for the first time lol I've got a nice bruise or three today b/c of it haha.

I think I have the burton rulers.. lol.. not sure but I love the lacing system.. its quick and easy.. the boot itself is pretty comfortable. Kind of soft boot.. not stiff at all. I have the 09's and have had them since late 08.. they are starting to fall apart slowly but still great boots.. warm.

You think you have them? Lets not post reviews on boots that you don't know if you own.

Anyways I know I have them, and they are stiffer than they are softer. Out of the box they were quite stiff but have broken into a mid-stiff nicely, not a soft boot like said above. I bought them due to wanting a bit more ankle support yet leaving me enough mobility for park/rails. I'm very happy with them, they are a very light boot but plenty warm. Don't know about the other boot so I can't give you a review on them.

I've got the 2010 Rulers and they fit great. Both boots you are looking at look very comparable to each other in flex. If you are having a hard time deciding go with the one that has the same manf. as your bindings. The binding to boot fit will probably be better.

BurtonX8 warned me of the out-of-the-box stiffness, and it sure is. I'm looking forward to trying to break them in in the short time we have left in the season. They are very comfortable though. I'm getting a pair of Superfeet greens to throw into the mix.

i love my life

Thanks for all the replies guys. I ended up going with the Burton Rulers. My bindings are Ride EX(medium) so I'm confident either boot would've fit nicely. I researched reviews for a good hour this afternoon and I really couldn't find anything outstanding about the Ride boots. Maybe that particular model just isn't very popular, who knows. I did however come across 90percent positive reviews on the Rulers so that's what I chose.

Sounds like I should walk around the house with them on for a day so they break in a touch though! I'm so excited that I'll be able to get into a decent boot and throw away my crappy LTD's. My feet will be thankful

You did try these boots on before you got them right...?

I'm surprised it took this long for somebody to ask me this

Yeah, I've tried them on earlier in the year. My awesome wife told me today she wanted to order me a pair and to hurry up and pick a pair before she left work so she could do it She also got the K2 Grom pack for our youngest even though she won't need it for a year or two. Price was to good to pass up! Not sure what happened but she wanted to get me new pants too.. ended up linking me the 686 smarty cargo pants and asked if I thought those would be ok. To which I replied, hell yes those would be fantastic!! She rocks
