I Like Traditional Lacing

Looking to replace my aging Burton Tributes. Want to stay with Traditional Lace. Looking for a stiffer boot.

Rome Folsom's have caught my eye.

I would consider 32 TM's but I have heard that 32 run a little wider. Don't have a wide foot, but I have not tried them on. They might be ok.

Any other suggestions?

The 32 Prime is even stiffer. My buddy likes his, doesn't have wide feet.

I find 32 boots to definitely run wide. I can't wear them and I have a regular size foot. I believe all Nike boots have traditional lacing systems. Whether or not you're into Nike I don't know. I've tried them on and they are super comfy but word is they turn to mush after a while.

the 32 footprint has typically been wider than other brands, but the heat molded liners will hug a wide or narrow foot. i've got flat narrow feet and i doubt i'll ever move away from 32. the tm-two is a super comfy and relatively stiff all-mtn do-it-all boot.

I have very normal feet.

Normal arch, normal width. I fit in Nike shoes very comfortably.

I tried FOREVER to find boots that felt comfortable. People on the hill were always telling me that their boots were as comfortable as their sneakers. I really figured they were all lying, my feet hurt so friggen bad, all the time. Especially just above my ankles. I had weird pressure points in almost every boot. Must have tried every boot out there. Burton, Thirty two, DC, Deelux, Northwave, If you can think of it, I've tried it. Nothing fit comfortably.

I then tried a pair of Kaiju's. They were like heaven on my feet. I wore them almost 100 days. Then, they are nearly done at that point. So soft you almost can't ride them. I did break at least 2 sets of inner lace locks. That is IMO the only weak point of the Nike lacing system.

So, I bought another set of kaijus. Love them. I could wear them literally all day, and not feel any pain at all.

32s are VERY wide in the toe box. Kind of narrow in the heel.

Burtons also feel very wide to me in the toe box.

13/14 days
60/75

14/15 days
let's not talk about it

Stay far far far away from nike and dc if you ride hard, theyll literally fall apart after 20 days.

32 are definitely wider on the outside (which could be a binding fitment issue), but I've never noticed them being wide on the inside. I have pretty normal feet as well.

20 days is an exaggeration buddy. Even the haters usually say about 60. Which is still quick, but for an average rider that only rides 20 days a year (lol if that) they are fine. Obviously an issue for normal riders.

fwiw: The stiffer 32's are pretty tight for my wide feet and need significant hammering in the forefoot to make room (they aren't super wide, but yea). The Lashed fits me the best but they are pretty soft.

My Nike ZF1 lasted 2.5 seasons. As i live at the resort I ride nearly every day for just under 6 months. In the end the only noticeable signs of wear was the tread (worn a little from walking to and from home) the outer tongue was worn on one side, stitching messed up I guess from it not being straight? and rubbing and finally the reason I will be buying a new boot, the first eyelet which is made of fabric busted. I don't know how other brands have ALL the eyelets in the same fabric....

I love traditional lacing.

I ride: NS Pandora 149 + Salomon Absolute premium Bindings
Stepchild PMS 149/ Smokin Fawesym 149 + Nitro Eris Bindings +15 -12

K2 Contour 5.
