which boots should i get?

So i got a proform from work that lets me get boots from;
Burton
Rome
Flow
Ride
I like a softer flexing boot, i ride mostly park, probably 60% park, 20% kickers/all-mountain, and 20% everything else

So far im thinking Burton Rampants or some Burton Invaders. I really haven't looked anywhere else, my mind is open. Thanks!

-EDIT: also is there a time limit on the proform code once i enter into the website? I know you can only checkout once, i think? but yeah if you've ever had one or know anything about them just let me know, thanks again.

I just picked a pair of Burton Hails and I absolutely love them dude. But I was also coming from a boot that was like cardboard 32 ultralights.

I heard the Hails were really nice. I just got some 12 Burton Rulers ($129) and they feel nice do far. Riding tomorrow hopefully, so I'll report back

Find the line/brand that fits you best, and decide from there.

these look nice if you got the proform why not go for the high end?



It would help if you fit burtons in this case but as long as you get the right size, a bootfitter and aftermarket insoles should be able to solve any issues.

Forsure, thanks man. How about the ions have you used them? What's the flex feel like?
