Default How often does the average person get new boots?

I currently have the 07/08 ThirtyTwo Lashed boots. I love them and they're still in great condition.

I recently bought a new board and pair of bindings because of the new banana/camber hybrid, magne-traction, canted footbeds, etc. that I didn't have on my old setup. Just wanted to give them a try.

Has the snowboard boot changed/improved enough over the past 5-6 years for me to warrant buying a new pair of boots? I would love to hear how often the average person get new boots.

Almost every two seasons for me. Sometimes less sometimes more. Not more than 3 though. Shit just wears out splitting all the time.

2 pairs every season, 0.5 size inbetween for really cold and just cold, and sell at the end of the season as i sell for about what i pay for them as i buy in the UK and sell in Norway, so it works for me...

Sounds like I should shop for some new boots. I think I'd stick with the ThirtyTwo Lashed boots. It'd be interesting to see how much weight has been shed from the boot in the past 6 years.

It really depends on how many days you got on them.

Two seasons is roughly 120 days for me. Usually around 70-90 days I find I am about ready for a new pair because the current pair is really starting to fall apart.

Some people on this forum get well over 100 days a season. They might need a couple of pairs a boots a season. Other members are lucky to get ten days. Their boots may last as long as they want to use them for.

I'm starting on my 4th pair going into my 6th season. 30-40 days per season.

I have bought really stiff boots for my last three pairs. Got about 90 days on my current pair and they're going strong.

If they fit well and you like them, no need to change really. They get softer over time but as long as you're comfortable, that's the main thing.

I ride my boots till they literally blow apart and I can't use them anymore which tends to be around the 4-5 month mark. Spring has a tendency to ruining my boots since I ride almost everyday and sometimes I just cant dry them out enough before the next day so the threading starts coming apart.
