Going Boot Shopping, Need Some Advice...

I'm going to try on everything I possibly can. I have a bit of a wide foot. I wear 10-10.5 street shoes. I have an old pair of Burtons that are 10.5 and they are way too big, I get heel lift and my feet move around so I know exactly what I'm not looking for.

I have a budget of $200 (is that reasonable to get something decent?)

Its my first season so I don't need anything top of the line. I ride groomers and sometimes hit the park but nothing crazy. I'm starting to get the hang of carving and I've been riding pretty fast recently.


Any particular brands or models that I should absolutely not miss when I'm trying stuff on?


Also I live just outside of Philly in South Jersey, does anyone know any good places around here that fit boots? Thanks!!

I'd highly recommend Celsius Cirrus if you have a wider foot. They're quality boots. They run very true to size and they have a smaller overall profile, my size 10 Vans are the same length as the Cirrus 11. The only reason I don't ride these is because of my narrow foot. Also check out ThirtyTwo Lashed or Team Two's. Also a little wider in the toe box.

Good suggestion! I ended up getting a pair of 32 lashed and they fit great
