BoardTheSnow73 Most Deeluxe boots come with a built in Powerstrap.

Bones You mean like the Booster strap for ski boots?

surfinsnow I have The One boot by Flow and love the fit. The liner has a velcro strap that you can get nice and tight around your calf. Even better, the liner's speed lace is actually attached to the back/inside of the boot, so when you pull it tight it pulls the liner (and your calf) snug against the back of the boot. They use lace-lock eyelets (they're also available with Boas, but I'm old school when it comes to laces) so once you get the liner tightented up, you can lace up tight around your upper calf and they stay that way all day. Rarely do I have to stop to re-lace or tighten them up.

Edwin S. Darden Vans makes the Matlock which is a great boot cross over having BOA from the instep down and a nice power/cuff strap at the top for a 2 zone closure. Very Nice!

djsaad1 the powerstrap seems to be exactly what I am looking for, I am going to try that first and then maybe the eliminator. The reviews on the eliminator seem to state that it keeps you more upright, which could be an issue.

i have flat feet and i ride the 2010 Burton O-zones.. i think they're amazing (and i don't really like burton stuff) after the first 2 weeks and they were properly broken in they're soooo comfortable, and i only wear my little cotton running socks in them and i stay warm all day.

**edit** now that i've read your first post, you may not like the O-zones, they're really soft (flexible).. and i like my boots/bindings to give me lots of room to move..

mysterl33 if your feet are flat, there are insoles for that.. I think you can have them custom molded to your feet.. might want to look into that??
