Ok, I get it. Now, seriously, what boot should I buy? If I buy it online how will I know it fits? Let's say I go to a shop and try a pair and like them. If I order the same pair online, can I expect the same fit as the other pair?

backstop13 STICKY request

And i would add another bullet point not to buy boots online after you've tried them all on...

Get your lazy ass to a local shop and try them on. Try every fucking pair on in the store, in multiple sizes. Then, pass your cash to the poor chumps how had to deal with you trying everything in the store on instead of passing it to some mega-warehouse corporation.

earl_je While I completely agree with this thread, it doesn't hurt to ask about a certain boots flexibility also. Think of it as a starting point of the thousands of boots available out there.

Leo I don't see anything but sound advice here. I say the same thing to people asking about boots. All I can talk about is construction quality and durability.

your boots are the piece of gear that how they perform is entirely based on how they work for the individual rider.
the best feedback that you can get from other riders is going to be regarding the durability of the boot - fit is completely subjective and how a boot fits someone else has absolutely nothing to do with how it will perform for you.

that's about it. that is all you noobs need to know about boots. try lots of em on, and spend whatever you need to to get the right boot FOR YOU.

Fuckin Sticky Bitches.
Doesn't look like whining at all to me. It's a good point. I'm guessing a lot of people are going to try to buy online without trying them on first, especially coming into the sport new and not wanting to spend a lot. Beginners don't really understand why the boots are as important as they are and if we're going to give advice on gear in general on this forum, this most certainly should be stickied.
