got my 2012 dc boa boots yesterday at the dc outlet in tuallip washington outlet mall for 50 dollar. can u believe it. sweetest deal ever. they were on sale for 99 dollar but they took another 50% off end of season. and i have to say after riding for 8 hr today. they are really worth it. stiff enough for response and comfortable enough all day. boa are easily adjustable. it stays tight for the entire time.

First you gotta try on a bunch of different brands, I found that the fit of boots is pretty close across different models within the same brand. Not exact but close.

Use this link for some pretty good reviews on all kinds of equipment.

I ended up with the K2 Maysis, it has a BOA for the outer shell and one for the inside that really keeps your foot pushed into the heel cup. Would of loved to get the K2 Thraxis triple BOA but I just could not justify $400 for boots.

Also keep your expectations reasonable, your gonna be hard pressed to find a boot that feels like an athletic shoe unless you go for a super soft park boot.

I just discovered Northwave boots, and they have a similar system to BOA, which I think is far superior...

Try taking a peek at the Northwave Caliber - They fit as true and comfortable as Salomon boots, and that T-Track ratchet uses parachute cabling - it will never snap. That strap you see around the ankle at the mid part of the boot is also a built in heel lock that will keep away any lift. Tightens as you pull the ratchet. Looks like this:

Dude.. If you live in Vancouver, go to West Coast Sports and try on those Northwave Calibers before you decide on anything. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
