These boots were absolutely bang on for me, comfiest i tried out of 15-20 pairs, I may go for a slightly stiffer boot next time though.

Rode on them for 7 days straight, no issues whatsoever, the materials etc just seem so much comfier than all the others i tried!

Trouble with boots is everyones feet are different, just keep trying as many as you can on, you'll find the right one eventually!

that's what the guy at the shop suggested i was going for 13 but 12 fit just fine. oh well we will see how they will feel tomorrow at hunter

XxSnowbunnyxX I'm not a boot expert, but I'm wondering if maybe you need a wide shoe? I have Burton Cocoa and I LOVE them. First season riding with them and at first they made my feet fall asleep and I hated that, but now that I've worn them in they're fine and theyre so cushioned and comfortable. If you buy some new ones, I suggest trying on tons of different kinds and wear them around the house for a couple weeks and see how they feel. If they're no good, return them. Just don't go riding with them yet.

The Synapse Focus is the most comfortable boot I've ever put on my feet. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good enough deal, so I went with my second choice, the DC Judge (which are great as well).

Salomon knows what the hell they are doing.

I've heard food things about (but have never been to) Emilio's in Queens.
Emilio's is cool. I picked up some Salomon boots there last year. I've also heard good things about Panda Sports in Brooklyn.

Good luck!

I have been to paragon sports, rei, blades downtown, burton store, eastern mountain sports, modells (useless), sports authority (useless)

Zappos.com has a lot of snowboard boots, and they have free shipping and return shipping so you can buy all the pairs you want to try and then just send back the ones you don't like.
