I love my K2 Maysis boots. Only boot I've worn where my foot is completely locked in with no heel wiggle but still super comfy. Everyone's foot fits differently but it might be worth a shot.

that's funny, the first boots I ever bought were some vans in the 90s and they were super comfortable

that's a tough one then, buying local is always better but try to find a shop with a boot fitter so they can tweak yours if they're not perfect. My local shop offered free fitting. I ended up with boots that aren't completely ideal (I would liked to try some higher-end/stiffer Salomons), but still the best boots I've had in years. Try to find a shop that will work with you and order in sizes/models they might not have in-store. Not always a sure thing though, I've had boots that were comfortable walking around and then killed my feet while riding. Worst case you'll have to buy online and return/resell like I have done. good luck

I was going to try that with the 32s but the ankle support was right on my ankle bone and I didn't want to mold them and then not be able to return/sell them. But yeah, next time I need boots I'm sticking with Salomon and I'll pick up some with moldable liners. My local shop didn't carry any of the higher end models

Zappos.com has a lot of snowboard boots, and they have free shipping and return shipping so you can buy all the pairs you want to try and then just send back the ones you don't like.

This is a tasty burger.

Saw someone already recommended Ski Barn. If you're driving out to Route 17 anyway might as well check out Cury's too -- kind of hit or miss on the customer service front but last time I was in they had a good selection. They're probably another 10 minutes north.

I've heard food things about (but have never been to) Emilio's in Queens.

Emilio's is cool. I picked up some Salomon boots there last year. I've also heard good things about Panda Sports in Brooklyn.

Good luck!

The Synapse Focus is the most comfortable boot I've ever put on my feet. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good enough deal, so I went with my second choice, the DC Judge (which are great as well).

Salomon knows what the hell they are doing.
