Default Boots to go with a Never Summer SL? No idea what to look for in a good boot..

I've got no idea what to look for in a good boot, or what different types there are and what they are best for.

Any suggestions or pointers? I mainly plan to just cruise and work my way up to some jumps, but I don't plan to do rails or boxes. Im a beginner btw.

The one that fits you the best, nothing else matters at this point in your progression.

Yea all you are looking for is fit. The SL is enough of a jack-of-all type board that there are certainly people riding it with all ranges of bootflex from soft to stiff.

My favorite brand that fits my flat wide feet is 32. Nikes tend to run narrow. Burton and K2 are probably the other 2 top loved brands around here.

So I don't have to spend $200+ if I can find a boot that is comfy? Even if its some lower-level brand?

That would be correct.

So Im getting the feeling that for me it would be ok to just wander into a Big 5 or Sports Authority and just buy the cheapest one that fits me well...?

Its not about going cheap or expensive, get what fits you best. It could be that will be a $250 boot or maybe a $100 boot.

The only shops I know of around me big ones like Big 5 or Sports Authority. I live near a socal beach so I doubt there is any specialty winter sport shops.

Find yourself a Sports Chalet at least. Better than any other box store. REI too.
