Salomon Faction
Hello I have been snowboarding since 2008 with my Salomon Faction, however I was thinking in upgrade to a stiffer boot and with the double Boa System.
My salomon were size 10-USA 28cm, and I have no problem however I feel the boot just a little tight I think if the boot were a little bigger perhaps a size 11 should be more appropriate, I have mesaured my foot naked at home and it measures 29.5cm long.
When I put the sock perhaps a size 11 should be the correct size, what do you think?
So what I am looking for i a Stiffer boot with double BOA.

My snowboard is a Nitro Prime taped 159 and my bindings are Raiden Strike size Large.
I am 5'11'' tall and my weight is 163 pounds

My level is Intermediate I think, I don't have any problem doing red or black slopes and turning on them with some speed.
I like to ride fast I usually don't do Jump, but I am starting at the park on small jumps but a very small amount of time Park is not what I most enjoy.

If Possible I would like to read your opinions in my case.
Best regards and happy trails :)

Not sure what your question really is, but knowbody can really tell you what size boot too wear, you have to try them on yourself and pick which boot and size fits your foot the best .

Ok regarding the size I already decide, I will buy with the possibility to return in of bad fit, however i have been around some k2 boots.
Probably the k2 Thraxis from 2011 with triple boa or the k2 T1 with double boa. At the moment the k2 thraxis is in advantage because of the triple boa instead of the double Boa.
What do you think
Best regards
