I guess you missed the part where he said not afraid to spend money on something that works.

You were able to wear a pair of Firefly's and have a good time snowboarding! I sir, applaud you and your feet. Firefly's were my first boot, and I only bought them cause I spent to much money on my board and bindings (noob mistake). I didn't know of course that they would suck so much. Anyway if you can have a good time with them, keep them. For me they're going to stay in the Friends who don't have equipment, and don't want to rent box.

Anyway as for a boot recommendation to the OP. I used to have a pair of Vans Aura boots, they were comfortable for me. I really liked them because of their double boa system, and really nice heel hold. Sadly I returned them, because they weren't the right size. When I went back to exchange them, they didn't have my size and walked I out instead with a pair of ZF1s (but I never regretted it).

Tried some DC Judge, no dice didn't feet my feet well. I ended up picking up some Salomon Faction Boa from the local shop and they are great I can wear them all day with no pain. Softer than I like but small price to pay - finally got some comfortable boots after buying and selling 5-6 different pairs over the last few years.

Next time you need boots get the heat moldable liners. You can throw them in the oven at 210 for 12 minutes without the insoles in. Then build up your toe area with some old socks and duct tape them on to your regular sock or two regular socks to make "space". I just did this again with my boots building up the toe area more and they are even better now. I can wiggle my toes great and it did relieve any stress points. I've never had such comfortable boots

I agree with this man. I spent a good few weeks going around all the shops I could, trying on different brands, like Burton, K2, Flow, Vans DC etc etc... and Salomons were the most comfortable. Easy to get into, good hold on the heels. I have a wider foot, so went with the Synpase Wide model. Very comfortable

I'll post another vouch for Salomon boots. I haven't had a more comfortable pair of boots since my Vans back in the late 90's when Vans was still Vans.
