2hellnbak I had some Solomon Dialogues that were pretty awesome. I don't think you can go wrong with that company as long as they fit your feet.... If they don't fit I suggest you go see a real boot fitter and see what wraps around your feet properly

Bertieman If anyone cares- I ordered last years solomon f3.0. If they don't fit, evo outlet offers $8 return policy with shipping label.

2hellnbak I have a pair of Ride Ful boots and they definitely have a low profile, and after looking at a lot of boots I think there are numerous companies offering it. The K2 boots looked like they had a pretty low profile as well. I'd go hit up a local shop and try some boots on and see what you find.

I think the base is more tapered in at the bottom to give you better heel and toe angles.

Solomons website doesn't actually specify if their boots are reduced footprint. Burtons boots do, but I don't trust those fake boa, overpriced boots, after owning a pair of em'.

The closest store that sells all this shit from me is like 2 hours so it sucks I can't compare them.
Salomon's 2.0/3.0/4.0 boots are nowhere near as reduced footprint as the F Series they replaced, fyi.
Very disappointing.

Brewtown With boots your going to want to try several on anyway to get one that fits right. If your really that worried about it then make the drive to a shop and bring a tape measure, otherwise order several pairs from an online place with a free returns.

From personal experience I couldn't tell a noticeable difference between burton, 32, ride, and dc as far as foot print.

Bertieman Hmm alright thanks for the information.

Justin Ride and k2 should be the same i think, but don't hold me to that.

Justin Salomon, you need to get the F series from them to get the reduce foot print.

Burton, has a maybe the smallest foot print however i think they have also shrunk there boots a bit in size as well.

Ride, I am currently using a pair. They are a bit bigger than the burtons in length however they also are a bit bigger inside. My toes will get messed up in a burton 13 however a ride 13 fits well.

I found dc to have a much longer foot print then burton, vans i think is big as well. You can just compare them in store also, take 2 boots of the same size and put them next to each other.
