Which New Boot?

Alright, Its new boot time!! I've narrowed it down to the 32 lashed ft (what I am riding), DC Judge BOA, or Burton Ambush (Quick Lace).

About me... I ride a ride dh2 155cm looking to ride alot of park. Need a comfy boot that will last and be responsive. I ride a size 11 comfortably, but would love a boot i could get in a 10.5. Looking at getting some union SL or burton malvitas to match.

I'm looking for some detailed recomendations or feed back. I'm not interested in just saying a name for names sake. Thanks Guys... Your the Best

Depends on the user. The Judge BOA's seem to be more of a free ride than free style boot, although they can definitely be used for either. You stuck on laceless systems? I always thought park guys prefer traditional laces because it's alot easier to tune stiffness in em.

Try them all on, and see which ones feel the best, are the easiest to get in and out of, easiest to tighten etc.

You no doubt will have your own preference for appearance, so find the ones you think look the best/have the best features, and just try them all on.

I had my heart set on some Burton Ambushes, but after trying on a bunch of boots, Salomon Synapses were the best choice for me. Everyone has different feet, and Salomons seemed to fit my bill

Love my Lashed what else is there to say? They are not a stiff boot by a longshot but mine have over a hundred days on em and look like the next 200 will be no problem.

If you like the pair you already have I don't know why you'd mess with a good thing?

i have the 2012 DC Judge dual boa and i use it for freestyle all the time. the nice thing about boa is that if you want the boots to be a little more forgiving, just don't tighten them up quite as much. there's nothing to complain about with them for me. that being said i know that 32 is one of the best boot brands as well and whenever i get new boots i will definitely be looking in to them more. the lash ft caught my eye. i can't comment on the burton boots as i have never used a pair and haven't done much research on them.

Using Dual Boa DC's and Malavita EST's in my current setup... hoping the dc's pack out more but apart from that no complaints.

I like laceless. Its easier to get a nice universal tightness. I do not much care for the laces on my current boot.

Overall i like my lashed; however, i have around 50 days on them and they are showing significant signs of use, and have packed out to the point they are too roomy now. Super light though, I was just maybe looking to upgrade, but if I cannot find anything much better i will stick with them and just downsize.

The number on the tongue doesn't mean shit. If you find a 10.5 that fits like your 11, it might as well have "11" printed on the tongue because it's pretty much the same size as your current 11.

If you want a smaller boot, look at some reduced volume boots.
