Default Good Low Profile/Footprint Boots?

Hi guys, I'm new here. Also new to snowboarding and loving it.

Looking to reduce my toe drag and I was hoping for more compact boots because these Flow Rift's seem massive (prob because I'm a size 13 too :P), giving me about 1.75 - 2 inches of toe drag at 18/18 wider stance.

Anyone have any good recommendations? I'm not really interested in spending a fortune on em yet maybe around $100 - 150.

Unfortunately you're not going to find many reduced footprint boots in that price range. Maybe keep an eye out for a pair of previous seasons Salomon F20s.

Dang, how do they compare in terms of protection to larger boots? Good enough?

Do you ride a wide board and still get that much toe drag?

I would suggest looking for last season models or used boots if you want to keep that price range.
