thegreek Yea, I think this time around im probly gonna try and buy something that is lace up. I think my boa's were just makin too many pressure points, I had to loosen the boa buckles before getting on the lift, jst to give my feet some rest

Milo303 Depends on what type of pain these boots are giving you

If you're getting pressure points on top of your feet, new insoles will likely not make a difference for you. But if you're having pain issues with the under side of your foot or maybe even your muscles, then you should maybe try insoles first.

And ya, you just gotta try on a ton of boots and let the boot pick you. I have Vans Cirro boots and they're starting to get pressure points now that they've been ridden for a season. I'm getting lace ups next time, screw boa

Puggy From listening around the forum the best advice, try on as many as you can until you find the one that fits perfectly.

Psi-Man I don't think a change of insoles is necessarily going to make something that uncomfortable feel better. 10 days of riding should break a boot in, imo. Given that uncomfortable feet snowboarding completely blows, I would consider selling them and moving on.

I have been looking at freeride boots this year as well. I have looked at the Solomon F22 & Malamute, and the Ride Insano and RFL's. I am trying Cirrus next, and may look at some of the Burton line if that does not work out.

new insoles vs new boots

Right now I have a pair of barely used (maybe 10 rides on them) 32 Focus boa's with a dual boa system that are an 08 model. My problem is that these are the most uncomfortable boots I have ever worn. I had the boots heat molded when I bought them, but they are still super uncomfortable. My question is should I get some better insoles or should I fork out the money and get some new boots.

Also if you guys do suggest new boots, what are some really comfortable boots out there for a more freeride focused rider/
