Default Same boot.. different year.. same size??

i've got a pair of burton moto boots that's i've been using for the past 3 seasons that i love.. but they're starting to fall apart abit so figured they need replacing. These have really done the job for me.. no complaints.. so thinking about just replacing them with some 2011 motos. just wanted to know if anyone knows if they change the sizing on the same boot over different years.. if u get what i mean..


thanks in advance,
el

You are probably pretty safe in ordering the same size, but it is not at all unusual for companies to change production of a given model to another factory from year to year (or even produce in two factories in the same year). There can be discrepancies in fit based on that. Also, expect your packed out boots to be about a full size bigger than the fresh boots that you receive.

Happy riding!

Hi there,

I tried Burton Moto's in size 12, both 2010 and 2011. Only my wallet could feel a difference. Went for the 2010, as the dual speed zone is not worth 90$... at least not for me.

Depends on the co. and the years in question. Just about every co. out there has been tweaking their boot designs, including major things that change the fit.

cheers for the replies guys.. might take the chance and go for the new moto's… yeah there's a couple of new things in the new moto's.. like the small footprint and the new lining that may change the fit i guess..
as a side note triple8.. have u got the rome boss's yet? and have u had a chance to weigh them? i remember u posted up some binding weights a while back and just wondering how the bosses fare against the others.. if memory serves me i think the old 390's were the lightest.

thanks again,
el

I wouldn't mind trying the 390 boss, as it sounds good on paper, but I'm going with all Flux this year (see sig).

Mm... I wouldn't do it. In 08ish, boots were typically made a bit larger. I learned this when I was buying my Union forces this year, and I found some 08 Force DLX's off the-house - they are listed as M-L, but say they fit 5-8.5. But they are definitely the same size as the 6-10 M/L Union forces from 2011, and they fit my size 10 boots fine. It definitely depends on the company though, and I have the feeling that Burton hasn't gotten all that much smaller over the years.
