Cheep boot help, please!
i got to buy a new pair of boots, and my budget is around 120. i checked out department of goods, and i came across two in my size for the amount of money i have, both from last season.

Have you checked local shops? I hit a couple last weekend and saw a lot of bargains on last year's boots, prices as good or better than online and you get to try them on.

I agree, I went to a store and tried on a bunch of last season boots that were all 70% off. I would check some place close to you. I ended up with a 2010-11 boot because it fit much better. Just try on a few boots and you will find one that fits. I bought two and returned two online before getting these. GL!

if you've got a dicks or a sport chalet around you, occasionally they sell decent boots, not sure if they'll be in your budget however.

yeah, but they sell lower-end stuff. these boots i'm looking at are pretty decent. i wouldn't want any snowjam boots on while riding a neversummer, lol. kinda defeats the purpose.

Is there an Eastern Mountain Sports close to you? Seem they have a few shops through out NY so might check into them. I know not many places here have the newer season gear yet but they might have a few stuff from last season about.
