Default park boot?

Hey,

Lookin for a decent park boot. Don't really know much about park boots, i assume they would be very soft for hard landings. I've been riding for 5 years but never got a specific set up so i'm looking at getting something aimed at park. Do you guys like park boots with more stiffness or softer?

Any boot suggestions at fair prices?

Generally a bit softer. I use my old about worn out Salomon F22s for park riding. They're not really a park boot, but they are when they have 100 or so days on them!

What size do you wear? I have a pair of DC Scouts in 11 that I'm trying to get rid of. I acquired them in a gear trade and have no use for them.

Im 11 in regular shoe size. I have 11 in my snowboard boots and that's a little tight. So i'm probably 11.5.

Wait, you're an 11 in street shoes but think you're an 11.5 in snowboarding boots? Most people size down a half size to a full size for boots.

then it may have just been the boot i got. I went cheap last year and got a pair of Apex boots or something. Super cheap. That's why i'm trying to clean it up a little and get good stuff in which i'll notice the difference.
