Extremo Well I've found 32 and Celsius are wide boots. Check out a few of their models. You cant go wrong with either company.

Krans Thanks for the responses so far

@neversummer: I checked out the site, has some good info, i'll try and browse around to see if i can find one through there.

@Extremo: That's a good point you made, i actually have wide feet, not sure how to classify my ankles, i guess they are average. if you are familiar with shoe sizes, usually Nike's are tighter on me so i buy a size or size and a half up. Lately though shoe sizes have been all over the board with me, i've bought anywhere from a 9 to a 10 1/2 but i'd say i hover around a 9 1/2 size. For the snowboard boots i figured i should err on the side of smaller, so i was going to look for a 9.

Anyway if you have any suggestions based on that, let me know. Also i noticed there were different lacing types, i was looking at a boa style boot but never tried that style before.

Extremo Boots are pretty standard now a days. Obviously you can find your own size...I've found almost all boots are pretty consistent as far as that goes. What differs in most boots is foot width esp in the toe box and ankle hold. So if you have wide feet, narrow feet, narrow ankles, etc. we could tell you what boot would best suit your feet from our experience. For example I have narrow feet (AAA) and narrow ankles and I found that the Vans Andreas Wiig II and the Vans Cirro were snug in those areas. As opposed to Celsius Climate and Celsius Cirrus which had more width in the toe box.

Aloha New Here -- Odd Boot Situation

Hey All,

I threw Aloha in the topic thread because i live in Hawaii, so obviously i don't get to see or practice snowboarding all too often -- even though when i do i enjoy it quite a bit.

My problem is for the last few years me and my family have been flying up to Canada (Big White) to ski/snowboard for about a week every spring break.

A lot of my other family members have been skiing for a while, they have their own gear and so things are pretty consistent.

For me however, i'm the only snowboarder, i still have to rent a board and boots each time, and while i don't mind renting the board i just can't stand rental boots anymore.

Since i go up in March, it is near the end of season and there isn't really a good selection of boots. Also we don't rent a car and we stay on the resort so i can't go to shops unless i taxi a day out.

I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how i could find a boot. I heard ordering online without trying is just too difficult but i'm desperate to find a way to avoid rentals
