My suggestion is to go to the store and start trying on boots until you find the one that fits your foot the best. If money is no object, then just try every boot they have and go with the one that you like taht fits your foot. That is the best and probably only suggestion you will get from just about anyone here.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

im totally diggin' my Ride Insano's - pretty stiff at first but they def. get loose after a solid week of riding
if im hitting the park i pop the boa for some extra flex and if im bombing the groomers I just give 'em a few good cranks and take off.
totally worth the dough

I'm disappointed in mine and my kids K2 Rykers. The BOA is continually loosening. I talked with a K2 rep and this is normal WHaaaaat really, my gear guy says he's been getting complaints on this too.
Very comfy, always need tightening...

I've been riding the K2 Ryker boots and they are pretty solid. A little more on the stiffer side, but very responsive. It has the boa system, but also you can adjust the boot insert, so when your on the chairlift you can just make them comfortable when you not riding and nice and tight when you are.

Tough to get in

I just got the Rykers (K2) but god almighty they are so difficult to put on and take off. Also the Conda speed lace when loosened really doesn;t make much of a difference. But the main bug is really difficult to put on

You should check out Celsius boots. Their double boa system is awesome. I have their Cirrus model and couldn't be happier.
