Default want to buy new begginer boots..

Hi,
I'm new in snowboarding. I did it once in Mayerhofen, it was great!!
I learned alot and now for my second snowboard trip I want to buy new boots.
I found 32 Lashed (2012) as a good option for me.
ThirtyTwo Lashed, Black White Boots ThirtyTwo, Rider Driven Snowboarding
I want to buy those but im not sure it will be good for me as a beginner. Does it?

You need to try them on. But yes they're a good option from what I've heard.

If they fit, they will be perfect.

I don't really know if there's such a thing as a "good" or "bad" boot for a beginner. Besides maybe a boot being too stiff (unlikely unless you're dropping alot) or hard boots. Really and this is what everyone here will say, the best boot is the boot that fits you and is comfortable. So go try some on.

there is no such thing as a beginner boot....only boots that fit well. however being a beginner...ya don't know what fits and how things pack out...so imho get a med flex boot that fits really good...after trying out at least 50 pairs, anticipate that it will pack out and look/consult with the above sticky boot faq on how to tweak so they work or go to a boot fitter.

I had hard time with boot fitment when starting out. I often had to make adjustment as I was learning, just because I was curious to try different tightness.

I started out with a K2 Maysis that I borrowed from a friend. I liked it it. The second year, I got my own, traditional lace and I didn't like it. For whatever reason while riding and falling I wanted to adjust my boots and that was a pain on the slope because I was tired from falling.

The 3rd season I got a single BOA and it was good. I got rid of it last season and got the K2 Maysis with the true double BOA that adjust internal and external. can't wait to be back on the slope again.

I highly recommend the K2 Maysis boots. The material used is very comfy.
