some wise words! haha. i know, im doin that soon anyway. Just figured id post on here if anyone had any experience with the boots i mentioned.

@slyder Yea i was also looking at K2 since ride is a part of K2 and ive loved ride products the last few years. Ill be sure to check out the Rykers, thanks!

slyder I agree with Shred but to add some input my 2 boys have had 2 sets of Ride Orion line and they loved the fit. I liked my Vans but they are bulkier boot and you are trying to stay away from but still a very comfortable boot, a bit stiff though at least the model I had.
I switched to the K2 Ryker and I love the fit, boa and it is not a bulky boot, so it fits your criteria.

Looking for some new boots

Ive been using an older pair of Burton Motos for the last couple seasons and i can tell that the boots are done and packed out haha. My main setup is 2011 Lib Tech TRS 157 with 2012 Ride Rodeos L. I would say im an advanced rider looking for a more all mtn freestyle boot. I put alot of days in each season and im an instructor at my home mountain up here in New York, so not always prime conditions each weekend.

The TRS has a 25.3 waist width and i dont have any toe or heel drag with my 10.5 boots but the Moto's just feel bulky, so i would like a lighter boot that has a smaller footprint than what the actual size is, i can most likely fit in a size 10 boot.
I was looking at Ride's boot line because i was so impressed with their bindings last season that i tried, i was thinking about going with either the Insano Focus Boa, The RFL's, of the FUL's. Anyone have any experience with these?

Im of course open to any other suggestions that anyone may have!
Thanks!

**EDIT---Also, i am not in the park very often.
