Default 32 Lashed or Ultralight?

Looking to get some new boots as the '10 Burton Rulers I had absolutely killed my feet in the two days I rode in them. Unfortunately I don't have any nearby shops that have these in my size (at least that I know of), but I tried on a pair of available Prions and they were way more comfortable without all the pressure/pain in my Burton boots (though I wouldn't really be able to tell unless I rode with them for a little bit), but were a bit soft.

Anybody had experience with one, the other or both? As I understand it the Ultralight is slightly stiffer than the Lashed at least according to 32's stiffness scale, and also uses the super high density foam liner that they have vs the dual density softtouch that they have for most of the rest of their model line. Do the lacing eyelets being on the inside of the cuff on the Ultralight become uncomfortable when clamping down with binders?

I do mostly groomed runs but looking to start a little park riding some time (may or may not be soon depending on how fast I want to go).

I'm on my 3rd pair of 32 Lashed and I love them. It would be good if you could try them on though, sizing isn't always what you expect.

Lashed are great for everything, not to stiff, not to soft. I would also try them on, my previous boots were 10.5, and my new lashed as 9.5. Haven't tried the ultralight.

I recently got rid of some Vans that were giving me the same problems. I had an old pair of thritytwos before that, I don't recall the model. Anyway, I picked up some prions, since that was all the shop had, but as soon as I can I'm probably going to go with the lashed. The prions are super light and comfy, but just too soft. I notice that there are a lot of people that love the lashed, so I'm thinking it's probably the same comfort and fit as the prion, but with a stiffer flex. Oh and on the size, my old boot was 9.5, and the new boot is 9. My shoe size is usually 8.5 or 9 depending. Another thing, is I ordered the vans online and I got lucky with the length, but they just had a lower profile that hurt. All in all, try them on if you can and heat molding definitely helped out for me!

Yea, if they boots fit well, but have a few weird pressure points, molding them will usually make things hunky-dory

I absolutely hated my lashed, the sewing around laces started to come off and I would say theyre more of a park boot, way too soft. Go try some salomons

what year are your tmtwo's? What problems are you having with them? Also, did you downsize?

Coming from '06 32 Prions to '08 32 Lashed years ago, currently in my 3rd season using them and best boot I've ever owned to date. Comfortable, durable and not a single isssue with them. Not sure about the newer versions.

It may depend on how many days you use them for as well since out west people will be on the slopes 3-4 times what East Coasters usually will. To date I have around 50~60 days on mine total.

If you get 32's, rule of thumb I tell everyone is go 1/2 size bigger than your usual shoe size for a good fit. Otherwise it may be a bit tight.

I would just try it on, because for me it was 1/2 a size smaller then my shoe size.
