What in the hell???

How many damn boots did you link? Get to a store and try some boots on. The best boots are the ones that fit YOU. Once you find some that fit well, then you can narrow it down from there.

It's easy for me. The Salomon F22s are the only boots I've ever tried on that are even remotely close to fitting me.

I actually went out and tried on boots earlier today before I posted this. I am aware of my size I was mainly asking about these models and about how warm they keep you or if they are known to leak. Unfortunately I don't think i can go to a store in August and test out those factors. Thank you for trying though. I am inexperienced at buying snowboarding gear so I came here for help. Oh and if it helps Like I said I was fitted at size 11 and it felt comfortable in 5 sets of boots, but am looking for a size 10.5 as well. If you can help me great if you cannot sorry I cannot provide anymore information about it. I just thought a Forums dedicated to snowboarding with a section dedicated to gear with a category only about boots would be a great place to ask more experienced people for help. I'm sure every thread here doesn't say go to a store there is no way to tell any difference from any model boots all brands are the same and all models are the same.

If anyone has any useful input that would be excellent

Thank you

What he said. Although you know what size boot you wear, all boots are different, and all feet are different. Going by size and ordering a boot online that you've never tried on in store isn't such a great idea.

I doubt that you tried on every pair of those boots that you linked to us in store.

Go into a local shop, say you're a beginner snowboarder, tell them what kind of boot you;re looking for, and I'm sure they'll be happy to help you. Most shops are starting to get the 2011 gear in right about now, so you may be able to find some nice deals on 2010 models. I'd suggest finding a few boots that fit and are comfortable, THEN go online and order (you may be able to find lower prices, colors you like better).

To the OP, the advice to go try on boots at the store until you find one that you like is the best and only advice you will get from just about anyone here.

Fucking hell warmth is subjective do you have raynauds syndrome, frost bite, missing toes, unicorn horns, and any other number of ailments from your feet. It's too subjective find what fits, put them on, wear them, don't step in puddles, and wear the right socks.

Alrighty then. Since warmth is your ultimate concern, here is your ultimate snowboarding boot:

Sorel® Glacier™ Boots : Cabela's

Douchebag

Fuck, any boot can be warm if you layer up the right socks with it. Hell, F22 are some of worst boots on the market as far as insulation (if you want low profile, you gotta lose bulk and you do it by trimming insulation) and I've ridden in brutal cold conditions and been fine. When it's stupid cold, just throw on a pair of Toasty Toes and keep on riding.

If you can't understand the concept that people's feet are different and boots are built differently, then no one here can help you. Fit is THE most important thing with no close second. Warmth can be taken care of.

There is only one store that has snowboard boots near me and I was there yesterday they had 5 boots in my size available, I tried them all on. The advice I was looking for had absolutely nothing to do with fitting me. I was asking a question about quality. I gave a lot of options because they are cheaper boots and I was assuming most of them were garbage. I even said sorry in my original post for the amount I had listed. Then you had such a warm response of "How many damn boots did you link? Get to a store and try some boots on". Not very Welcoming. I'm not stupid, I tried on what I could

Anyway, I understand trying boots on are the best ways to get a comfortable boot but when your options are limited sometimes you don't have a choice. Oh and by the way the only store that was around here didn't even have anyone working for it that knew anything about snowboards. The employee warned us he didn't know much because he was more of a ski/bike guy

I bring up things like leaking and warmth because I have been told by people and read in reviews of certain boots that certain boots can ruin a trip by being bad quality and having huge leaks or having little insulation from poor material.

I guess there just is no advice on brands or models. I guess Ill just order what I think looks good and give it a shot. In most things there are brands that are known to be high quality throughout all of their products. Seems it doesn't work that way with Snowboarding boots
