If you're borderline between a wide and narrow board some of the Burton boots with their Shrinkage Technology will help. The boot's footprint is a size smaller than normal.

F22 FTW. If you can find them!

Salomon and Burton are the only two companies I know of that have the low profile type boots. There might be others, so hopefully someone will chime in with that info.

BTW, +1 for F22 (the boots I ride with).

i guess for people in the future who might read this thread, i found the deeluxe one series also is a low profile boot, by 1.5 cm's which is a lot in snowboard ww's. can't seem to find this boot anywhere online, maybe i'll have to wait for the season to start to start trying on boots.

DC Status or Judge are lo-pro. Vanns are fat.

I'm pretty sure Ride is making some low profile boots as well.

My Burton SLX's are low pro.....so much so that my bindings are almost a size too big. That might be something to take in consideration if you're a borderline boot size between binding sizes.

Try to get a refund. Do not settle on boots. they are THE most important piece of gear. you will only regret it if you get some cheap no-name brand like that. Get a refund and then look into 32, Nitro, or Burton again.

Salomon F series, Burton ions, slx, driver x and others, and ride all have some type of footprint reduction. I was previously using f22's for a bunch of seasons before switching to the Burton slx. I wear sz 12 in sneakers but bought boots in an 11 and have a footprint of a 10. No wide boards for me anymore
