Try the Burton Moto or Ruler.

The Ruler IMO, is the best performance/value mid-level boot out there. Great fit, good amount of features, and super efficient Speedzone lacing.

The only compromise is that the Moto and Ruler don't have as good as a heel hold as the higher end liners.

Ill give ya 2cents.

I am having my best luck ever with boots going to 32's this year. FWIW: my feet are flat and wide.

The Moto is the best selling boot for the past 10 years or something like that. There could be many reasons for this, among which I would imagine is them not sucking. My riding buddy has been wearing a pair of Moto's that he bought used for over 3 seasons. They aren't very stiff but you can buy stiff boots when you are good enough to know you need them.

If comfort is not an issue, buy either the cheapest one, or the most expensive depending on if you want to save or invest (in whatever frills the more expensive option offers).

moto probably sold alot because it's burton and cheap. +1 on nike boots. they were very comfy and supportive.
Jp walker was very good also but they were soft. so if you ride alot of park it will be good.
When you are buying pay attention to the liners. Some packs more than others. Generally firmer dense liners packs less.
And soft light liners packs alot. Burton moto looks like i would have to one size smaller. Generally cheaper the boots more they are going to pack down

just bought the Burton Ruler from 2011. after trying lots and lots of boots i bought these ones.
the price? 67 euros (90 dollars). yep, that's true. a great "last day deal" in a local store.

Sweet deal... Anything less than half price is really good. I've got most of my gear during a local stores spring 50% off everything deals. That goes for board/boots/bindings, as well as goggls, helmet, etc. etc. etc. Just picked up a new pair of pants for $45!
