bseracka Yes get new boots. The Hails are a super soft park boot and you're "never in the park". A stiffer boot will provide more support, response and assist in getting good edge pressure for turns when you're pushing your self.

Jason Thanks for the help. I'll stick with the hails.

Megatron X Stiffer boots would give you a better response so if you feel like you are sluggish then I would invest in some new boots. But if you feel like they are holding up fine then keep your boots as they probably still have life in them.

SnowMotion If you just cruise around the hails should have 90-120 days of riding in them from new. So you can just do the math and see how many days you've ridden them. The other way to find out if you need new boots is if they start getting really soft like converse all-stars or something then you need some new ones. Boots are absolutely the most important piece of equipment so make sure you are in the right ones!GL

Should I get new boots?

Going into my 3rd season with my Burton Hails. I picked up the Hails because they were the most comfortable boot at the store (had a pretty wide selection). I ride in the north east and either take a nice ride down or try to push myself to go fast. I'm never in the park. Would I benefit going to a stiffer boot or should I just stay the hails for a couple more season?
