Flick Montana I'd recommend Vans any day. In fact, the last two pairs I have bought were Vans and I have yet to see a reason to buy anything else.

Well then you're absolutely right about that. My new Vans barely squeeze into my M/L Union Force baseplates. They get in there but without a hair width to spare.

They are muuuchh flexier ( i believe a flex rating of 2 or 3 )
They also have the shrink technology and you really get the feel of the board for freestyle. And yes, i do bomb down the hill with my park board with no issues. These boots are the shit.

09/10 Burton Hails check em out
Please see my post here:

It sounds like you know a lot about the Hail line of Burton boots. What do you think of these Hails that I have for my purposes. I plan on just riding the mountain. Maybe some small jumps. But I don't want to risk too much. Are the 2007 Burton Hails appropriate for me? Or are the Rome Smiths just as good for my purposes?

Boardski For around a $150 I would look at the RIde Jackson or K2 Raider. Normaly around $190 you can find them on sale now. They both have heat moldable intuition liners which are killer. Nitro makes an excellent boots as well and they're often overlooked and underated by most.
