Just put on my first season Motos ...
And damnit they are so comfy. I wore these 3 seasons ago, and ditched them because they kept loosening up on me (speed lace) and my feet were swimming after a few runs and the liner packed out a little.
But I was digging through my shit looking for my bevel/edger and saw the motos in the back of a cabinet. I figured, Hmm, lemme try them on.
Man they are comfy. I have narrow heels, wide feet but not in the toebox, they're wide right in the middle. On top of all of that my feets are low volume.
Since the Motos I've tried:
Nike Kaiju. Heel lift, plus a little narrow which hurt my wider foot.
K2 Maysis. Amazing heel hold with the inner boa, but wasn't wide enough (my stupid foot is wide in the middle)
32 Lashed. Finally something wide enough but it's so big volume wise, that as soon as the liner molded just a little, it didn't fit me well anymore.
DC Gizmo. fits well width wise, but again, just too much volume.
Anyway this is getting too long. My question is, I know the Motos are low level shit. Is the fit on the higher end burtons similar enough to the Motos? Or are they all very different in fit? I'm in San Diego where local shops are slim pickings so I have to try them on where I can find them, or order and try and return. Trust me, I've put on every boot I can.
I like the convenience of the speedlace but they do get loose so I'm probably looking at laces.
Worst come to worst I can just stick with the motos but many they're like jello.
EDIT: Fuck it. Going to order a pair of Raptors and Hails and try them out. the Hails sound a little soft but I never really carve hard or need a stiff boot anyway. My Gizmos are pretty soft.
Hopefully the articulating cuff will help with heel hold too.
