Default All Mountain Freestyle Boots.

Hey guys,

Picking up a bunch of new gear this year iincluding a new setup that will be using a Lib tech TRS and Union Atlas's. I know boots are mainly about fit and feeling but i'm looking for a pair that will compliment this setup as well as my 11.5 foot lol.


Thanks guys.

32 Tm-two. The Lashed is their most popular all-mtn boot, but slightly noodely. The Tm-two basically targets the same riding but is just more built, a little better tech, upgraded liners, etc.

If you don't hit park at all, and want something more bomber, the Prime is awesome.

32's are all your'e gonna hear from me, but you are correct about fit. They tend to run wide, while boots like Nike tend to run narrow (maybe u have narrow feet). K2 and Burton also make decent boots - supposedly Adidas is coming to the dance as well.

Go try some shit on, and don't skimp. Don't come back here and tell us you got a pair of Burton Motos - they have less support than my smartwool socks.

Im not a huge fan of Burton. More than likely i'll be doing 90% Mountain 10% Park to hang out with my friends who do the opposite. I've heard 32's a lot. Any input on DC? I'll definitely try them on!




P.S. Thanks for the responses guys I really appreciate it.

I'd consider DC just because they did start with shoes. I'd alot sooner buy a DC boot than a DC board

Salomon is the only company (that i KNOW of) that actually offers some of their models in WIDE versions. FWIW

I think my feet are slightly wide but not not like crazy. I was looking at DC's Gizmos or Ceptors but I've hear so many good things about 32's ahh lol More than likely they'll being used with Atlas's or tt30's

DC's feel like cardboard. The Gizmo's tightening system on the lower section is useless. Even cranking down those straps do minimal amounts of actual tightening on the boot. They do not use heat moldable liners either.

Other than that, 32's have a generally average fit in the heel, wider midfoot and wider toebox. K2, average, average, roomy. Burton, average, ave, ave. Ride is basically the same as K2 for fit. Salomon is narrow, average, roomy. Nike, narrow narrow, slightly roomier than narrow. Cecius fit similar to 32.

As you should be expecting though, try a bunch on and decide for yourself.

Alos using DC's experience in skate shoes as support that they may make a good boot is bad. Their skate shoes are garbage.

You should checkout Celsius boots too. Something like the Xenon or Rexford might fit the bill.

Ride's intuition liner is bomb and I like them too cuz their boas come in medium stiff....check em out. I ride a lot of park but like to haul ass too so I like my boots a little on the stiffer side
