scrill Any other suggestions on bindings?

BurtonAvenger Best boots the one that fits your foot. I haven't seen your foot so I suggest you wear Sorels and use duct tape straps.

Ok, don't email Greg at BWMSnow. That site that you got the picture from is in New Zealand hahaha.

jdang307 Buying online is fine. Just expect to wait a bit. I have a terrible boot selection around here. Sometimes I can't find my size (split between 7.5 and 8 depending on brand).

Order from places that have great return policies and you're good.

Endless.com only carries 32 and DC. They provide free shipping, easy returns, and free shipping back to them. I just got a pair of 32 Prions today and they feel like heaven on my wide feet. Feet so wide they get pinched by K2 Maysis boots which are also supposed to be wide.

scrill Alright thanks for the feedback on the boots, I guess I'll just buy them when I'm up there. As far as bindings I'm still open for suggestions. Thanks

bcasey I would never buy a boot blind (online). Always try them on.. too important imo.

As a side note... I have even tried 3 pairs of the same boot in the same size and found that one of the 3 pairs felt better than the other two.

I get what your saying.. but boots should always be tried on you can't just hit the internet up... everything else like board and bindings aren't as important to see in person when making a choice.

Snowboard_Otaku if you cant try boots on i would NEVER suggest buying online...

trying on boots is a MUST so when you go to CO try as many pairs as you can... i'm sure many people here are from CO and can redirect you to stores with alot of variety...

Bindings.. I am partial to burton bindings for my own reasons. That said, bindings are personal pref. Take into account stiffness, padding, quality straps and most of all... ratchets that work. If you ride a lot.. also take into account binding repair. That is another reason I ride burton bindings, burton is easily the largest and most popular company and therefore there is a ton of shops that will have burton repair kits with replacement ratchets and ladders.

Generic response I know... but seriously, buy boots that fit very well. No one will be able to tell you what boots will be best for you but YOU. We can only tell you what kind of things to look for in a fit.

EDIT - Just wanted to add.. I ride burton boots with my burton bindings. They are designed to fit/work together well.
