Default What kind of boot should I buy?

Hey,

What kind of boot should I buy? I was used to ride a burton moto, but I would prefere something more special. The only problem is that I have a size 15 (us).
The setup I ride with is: a lib tech dark series from 2011 and the bindings I use are union forces of the same year.
Any suggestion is welcome.

Thanks on advance

Hey,

For the moment I'm doubting about two boots: the burton ion (but I'm afraid it's going to be a little bit to stif, if you're coming from a moto) and the other option is the burton raptor. The reason why I'm thinking about buying a burton boot is because they have shrinkage footprint reduction and for a big - footed guy like me, it's an interesting option.
Let me know if you can help me out?

thanks

with a hoof like that I really think you need to try on as many boots as you can.

yeah, that's actually the thing. In my normal shoes I always have like a 13, so i'm hoping a 13 in snowboardboots would fit me.

make sure you get down to a shop and try them on. Ordering over the internet without trying any on is a bad idea IMO, not to mention the fact that you've been riding a 15 but are thinking of trying a 13.

This, went to my local shop and spent two hours there today, it's slow season so the store owner literally chilled with me as I tried on 10-15 pairs of boots. Ended up getting 2012 thirtytwo Lashed Bradshaw ed.

The boots before this I got on a whim at a boarding show where I didn't have enough time to walk around/try on that many pairs and I regretted it.
