I just started this year, but I'm able to do rails/boxes and go down blacks.

I ride in 2010 Vans matlocks (Got em at REI for $80 bucks) and they feel like moneyyyyyyy Although keep in mind Vans are a little wide. I wear a size 9 and they JUST fit in my M/L Union forces.

I'd have to disagree, after trying on around 30 boots I found Vans were one of the few boots narrow enough to fit my feet.

For around a $150 I would look at the RIde Jackson or K2 Raider. Normaly around $190 you can find them on sale now. They both have heat moldable intuition liners which are killer. Nitro makes an excellent boots as well and they're often overlooked and underated by most.

They also have the shrink technology and you really get the feel of the board for freestyle. And yes, i do bomb down the hill with my park board with no issues. These boots are the shit.

09/10 Burton Hails check em out
Please see my post here:
http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boo...09-2010-a.html

It sounds like you know a lot about the Hail line of Burton boots. What do you think of these Hails that I have for my purposes. I plan on just riding the mountain. Maybe some small jumps. But I don't want to risk too much. Are the 2007 Burton Hails appropriate for me? Or are the Rome Smiths just as good for my purposes?

Oh, I was referring to the outside of the boot. I should take a picture of them top-down compared with my bro's Salomons (both size 9) and the Vans are considerably wider. My Vans actually fit pretty tight, but the outter portion of the boot is wide, at least for the boots I tried on (Aura, Matlock and another one).
