whichever one fits your feet best,

The tech is all very comparable. Quality will be fine on all of them, with 32 being the lowest of the 3.

I'd pick the ones that were most comfortable on my feet.

That's all.

The dude's already said he hasn't got access to the boots, so he's not gonna be able to try em on.
Therefore, telling him to pick whichever fits best or is most comfy is a moot point.
Just help him out with your take on the respective tech and quality.

No, that's not quite what he said, which actually was, "The only boot i am able to try on is the ride."

If there's one boot model that meets your general specs and you're able to try it on, do so. If it feels good, buy it. Only if it doesn't feel good would there be a point to asking for opinions on other boots that can't be tried on. If the Insanos prove to be a good fit, who would be dumb enough to recommend that the OP buy something else instead, sight unseen?

To the OP: Try on the Insanos before you do anything else. Don't worry that there might be some theoretically superior boot out there somewhere. The perfect is the enemy of the good.

You should look into the K2 Maysis. Slightly softer than the T1 DB, and a great boot. It would prob be a better match for your board/binding setup. Celsius Cirrus is also a solid choice. I would stay away from the 32's b/c I'm very unimpressed with their boots. Fit aside, they're just huge and heavy, although not quite as bad as Vans.

15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis
14 Flow Hylite

The board shop in my town, only has laced boots, so i cant even try on the insano, just a similar boot, and have him order the insano for me...

but your right, i want to order online to avoid tax, and because i really dont have a choice..but before i order online, I would like to pick my "best" option for a boot, so im not sending back a million boots..

thanks

in that case, just order a couple of pairs, try them on and send back whichever ones you don't like
