White Boots?
 
Thinking up picking up this seasons Burton Moto in white/black but im kinda curious about one thing. Never owned white boots, think they might get all nasty after a while? What do you think? Im kinda a clean freak with my stuff, are white boots a no-no or would they clean easily?

stupid question i know. lol

to my knowledge... white gets dirty easy.... and all the dirt and mud you have have to trek through.... my advice if u are a clean freak stay away from white

mud, forgot about that one. haha. True, good point. I also heard that after a while they turn yellow so ill skip on that then.

I've owned white Burton Moto's, didn't have any problem with them getting clean. Dirt happens and it will show up more on white but they are boots, you can just wipe them off. Dirt you pick up on the walk from the parking lot typically is gone due to a day spent riding in the snow. Dirt on the way back to the car can easily be cleaned up if you're really a big clean-freak but it was never a problem to any degree for me that I even needed to do it.

I'd be more concerned about Moto's in any color, I found them to be a pretty poor boot. :D

The Moto was my first snowboard boot. MeanJoe is correct, there are much better boots out there. Get the best fitting, and best quality, boot you can find and don't worry too much about the color.

The ambush was my next choice, hows that one?

I already got black moto ones but I'll return them no bigge

The Ambush looks pretty good, definitely a big step up from the Moto. My favorite boots the past couple of seasons have been the Burton Hail and Grail, but I like traditional lacing. Just be sure you get a good fit, whatever boot you get.

Well i looked around all day and tried to find some honest reviews and the Ambush doesnt look so bad. I went ahead and ordered it, not so much more than the moto but at least its better.

Do you not have a store where you can try on boots?

It's very unwise to make an online boot purchase without previously trying them on.

A boot that works for the person reviewing them almost certainly doesn't have the same feet as you

Maybe you'll end up ok, but you just took a big risk

well i went boot shopping the other day and i tried on like 4 pairs of Burtons all the same size so i know the size will be right. As for the boot itself its a wider boot which might feel nice also compared to some others i tried that feel a little too snug.

But not much of a risk, the store i purchased them from is like 5 min away from me its just that if you buy online you get free shipping and no tax. lol. I figured i'd save a few bucks and order online. If i don't like the fit i can always return or exchange at store. (if it wasn't for that then i wouldn't have bought them. lol)
