Boots on a tropical island..
I'm having major issues finding boots where I live.. Okinawa, Japan. It's a tropical island that hasn't seen temperatures below freezing.. ever. So they don't have any snowboard gear here.
So what would you guys suggest I do? I hate to order online and keep mailing boots back that dont fit perfect. I can wait till the winter and buy some when I get to the mountain. Or I can fly all the way to tokyo just to try boots on, and pay japanese prices for boots are probably twice what they are in america on top of the airplane ticket.
My idea was to rent boots when I get up there, find a pair that I liked and just order those for next year. only issue is im wanting to buy a board and bindings before I go and dont want to get boots that fit great, but dont work with the bindings that I get.
