Fergatron2000 Adidas fit on the midwide to wide side. Nike fits very narrow (at least historically) and burton is in between but kinda narrow.

Read some disparaging feedback on Adidas boots here and elsewhere. Although the JBs felt pretty nice in the store.

Big Foot If you buy your boots online based on a deal without ever trying them on, you're gonna have a bad day.

i hear you man, struggling with the same thing myself.

people on this forum love to be all smug and say "try them on. duh" but i spent an entire day last weekend trying on different boots at several local shops and not only was i not able to find anything that fit me but i found the help at these shops to be lacking as well. it's frustrating feeling like i need new boots but having no idea how to go about finding them other than just picking a pair online that have good reviews and hoping they work. sucks.

let me know if you find something good though, i feel like i'm looking for about the same thing as you are.

Best Boot - Adidas, Nike, Burton, etc???

Was looking at several boots to pick up with some hopeful deals in the new future. If you looked at my boots now, you'd puke. They are nearin' close to the 20yr make, it's disgusting. Anyways, here's what I had in mind...

1) The new Adidas Blauvelt

2) Burton Ambush

3) Nike Kaiju or Lunarendor... heard the Kaiju's have been Nike's most tried and true.

I ride all-mountain mostly, and like to hit side kickers, and some park from time to time and maybe a cliff if I can find the right scope... just picked up a new set of the Union Contact Pro's for my Bataleon, so this is another complement. I know you have to break-in some boots more than others, but my foot is a little more on the wider side, so I know previous Nike's were too tight around the ankle, so that definitely is a concern for me if they are still the same.

All in all, I am looking for anything really, medium to MH flex for the most part, and I do prefer lace up... since I think they will sustain more through the seasons.

Appreciate any replies.
