I have bright purple boots and I get TONS of comments on them. Sure they fit good but even if they didn't Id wear them anyway. They match my outfit AND I adore getting complimented. Not to mention Im easy to spot anywhere on the mtn with BRIGHT purple boots.

it's like win win win
really you like compliments? what are you one of these half-shark half-cat people?!?!

just kidding who doesnt

Matty, keeping snowboarding simple around here since Nov 2010....

Also, if you're looking at price points, consider how many days in a season you're going to put on them. Some lower end boots will last 30-50 days (or less) while some of the more expensive boots will last 70-100 days (or more) before parts (outsole, laces, etc) start breaking.

In the end, follow _stark's advice. Having a great time sliding on snow starts with some boots that will be comfortable for the entire day.

IMHO, between those three, you already made your choice...

If you wanted to expand in brands, do what twoface said. Find a few brands where it's dualzone and compare. If you don't want to do the research, buy the Ions and have fun!

Whichever fits best. Those three boots are not gonna fit the same. Especially the thirty two. Try them on. The most important and really only important tech on a boot is how it fits you.

I'm a beginner park rider. I still cruz a lot but im trying to learn how to do small jumps right now ( I can land about 50% of them)

haha. I guess i got taken in by the salesman at the shop and was wondering if all those fancy features that the more expensive boots have is worth anything ( you know, the Rad Pads, Liner Sole, Low-Profile, Optimized Midsole, AutoCANT Cushioning etc.. If all those technical terms means anything)

I think i will just order 10 pairs of boots from Zappos, try them all on and keep the one that fits me best.

By the way, any good recommendations i should consider for zappos? Im going with them because they have the best return policy and i get a good discount from them.

If I was going to not buy local where I can try them all on and pick the one that fits best, then I would be looking to buy from Dogfunk or Backcountry.com, not Zappos. To each their own, but seriously, purchasing snowboarding boots from a shoe specific sales website just doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Very true. I love my ions, and I couldn't go without dual zone now
