Need advice with women's boots

Last season I bought Nike zoom forces that I thought would be a good fit after I wore them for awhile but they are way too small. I like the look of them and want something on the stiffer side for park. I've tried on the burton emerarlds and like em. Has anyone worn the emeralds? Or should I get a larger size in Nike boots.

My wife is riding on a pair of Burton Sapphires which she really likes (very good heel hold considering how skinny her ankles are). I'm really not very familiar with women's boots... but the Emerald seem to share the same naming convention... so I guess(?) they would be good too?

Bla Zoom Force 1, ick. Those where the worst boots I ever had. Cold feet and pain. They made me suck more, I swear. The day I went back to my old boots my friend said I was riding way faster and my feet were happier.

Both Sapphires and Emeralds are soft boots. I had 2 pairs of Sapphires. Sapphires are park boots, you suppose to want softer for park. They were trashed and falling apart at 70 days. They were way better than those nasty nikes. I had Emeralds years ago. I don't remember what sizes they were exactly. Overall I thought both were good boots.

The best boots I ever had were Northwave Devines. Those Nikes can suck it. Them crazy good Northwaves went over 200 days until they finally started falling apart. I am going to buy those again. Never again Nike. I would buy sapphires again if they were a great killer deal.

Maybe the Nikes do fit, but feel like they are small because they suck. i guess some people like them, but I never heard of it. I know another person who hated them and I heard of other people regretting them.
