Difference of opinion bro lol.. Good luck with them. Did you find the laced or the fast track Lashed boot? I wish I had more backing but other than wearing mine around the house to break them in, I haven't had the chance to ride them yet. They feel great strapped into the board though.

This garbage is what ETM is referring to, and while you may not be the only person, all of you can expect to get flamed.

Playing devils advocate, why the hell would he buy from the shop if OP found a better deal online? Yet you preach trying on boots because they are your most important piece of gear. You have to try them on somewhere. If the shop is willing to help match a price then support your local business.. 85% of what I buy is from my local shop (and I buy a lot from simple beanies and wax to bindings, boards etc) so you "flaming" someone for finding a deal this time that a local shop is not offering or may not have is ridiculous. Get off your self righteousness and tell me EVERYTHING you buy is from your local shop!

The laced kind. I had the Speed Zone Rulers for a long time and I got sick of that type of lacing. I'd rather just get the traditional laces.

Also, I do get a lot of stuff from board shops. I always buy wax, hats, gloves, jackets, pants, etc. from there. I don't have the money to get a whole new setup this year so I wanted to at least get new boots. The place I tried boots on at was a Zumiez in Erie, which I would never buy anything from because they'll be in business no matter what. If I want to buy something from a board shop that I can't find for significantly cheaper, I'd go home to Ohio and go to the shop I always go to, but I can't do that this time around.

I bought a pair of bindings recently from someone on this forum.

Everything else I use I have purchased locally, although some has been at bigger stores unfortunately.

Don't be mad cuz I quoted you, you made a short simple statement, which is gonna rub people the wrong way, it did ETM, myself and I'm sure others.

Going to a shop with the mindset of taking up their time to try on boots with every intention of buying them from someone cheaper online is absolute bullshit, and its called ethics, you can call it smart shopping, I'm not here to change you, but from where I can see, on my high horse, it looks and smells like bullshit.

And giving someone else advice to be a douchebag, is like being a douchebag x2.

I didn't intend on this happening just by asking a simple question. Obviously this is a touchy subject on this forum so next time I just won't ask and buy something online on my own terms.

I'm not trying to start a war either, even though my language is strong, I am simply trying to point out the crux of the issue, which is what and how it was put by sleev, and explain the reasons for the reaction.

If you have the intentions of doing this, tell the shopworker who is fitting you for boots and gauge their reaction.
