Default ozone or ruler

need some boot advice... boarding for 19 years , i'm 6'1 220 lbs ride all mountain, groomers, pow some jumps, pow when ever i can , with maybe 10% of the time in the park . this year i want to spend more time in the park and doing freestyle as compared to bombing. i found both boots to be comfortable for my size 12 feet. last boots were van's fargo and driver x from a few years ago when i weighed 290 and rode a 167 baron. . i now have a 158w banana magic and 162w custom flying v...both with Co2's except est version for the flying v.

are the ozones geared for more park ? will the ozones be to soft for all mountain riding at my size. im used to stiff boots but these rulers and ozones felt great on . both are priced within $30 of each other on mark down. i expect to get about 25 days in this year and want to see what might be the optimum boot for me .

Get the Ruler. Awesome boot for anywhere, anytime on the mountain. The Ozones will probably be to soft. I rode Rulers last year and they did well park, blacks, off-piste, groomers, etc.

i ordered a pair of last years ions for $229... wore them for the first time this weekend during a big early season dump in Tahoe. next time i will wear them around the house instead of taking them out of the box and hitttng the lift. a bit painful at first but they definately packed out by the end of the day. it was my first time boarding in two seasons due to knee injuries. they fit even worse with superfeet so i kept the stock insole in . i will put in the superfeet this weekend, should feel better now that they are packed out some. one thing i noticed was my ultra flat feet began to get sore on where im supposed to have an arch.

If the superfeet don't fix the pain go see a bootdoctor or foot doctor. i.e. a bootdoctor like Surefoot can make custom footbed for your feet. A lot of ski boot places have this ability. Else see a foot doctor to have an orthotic made.

P.S. I don't remember if the ions have moldable footbeds, but if they do wear the boots for at least half an hour and they should mold to your foot type or go to your local shop that has the liner oven that can heat them up for you.
