Question Whats a good boot?

Just bought a board so Im gonna buy some boots before I get the bindings so I know what size to get. Anyways, I really have no idea what a good boot is, or if there are certain types of boots for certain riding styles. So I am more of a freestyle boarder and ill be doing a little bit of park, but yeah I have about $160 bucks to spend on them. So if anybody wants to help me out that would be appreciated!

One that fits and is comfortable. Simple as that.

From what I've learned you want a boot that matches your board and binding in terms of flex.

You'll most likely buy your board based on your riding style and goals. Follow suite with your boots and bindings and you should have a good match.

Search button is your friend. Tons of info on brands and fitting.

My vote goes to salomon. I LOVE their fit. I bought $350 boot without trying it, beeing 10000km far awat from the seller and it fits like a glove. I got lots of salomon shoes and all of then are super goot for me,

But i understand that there's some people that absolutely don't fit in salomon boot, and some that find other's boot more comfy.

At least you know how other salomon fit, if you have one, i mean regular shoe, not snowboarding.

ones that are comfortable for you! everyones foot/ankle is different and every boot is different so find the one that matches you best. it seemed like the 32 lashed were very popular and those are the ones that fit me great as well. might be a model to look into as they may have good universal fit.
id also recommend looking into replacement soles for arch support! imo your boots are the most important part of your setup, so dont skimp!

If you have a normal foot and lower leg then you have little to worry about ordering online. Just need to get the right size. Just hope you're not like me. Narrow heel but normal width toes. Long toes making the foot low volume and I have huge calfs/kankles making for built in forward lean.
