PS - You don't need to heat the Foot beds, just insert them into the boot and wear them. It will be uncomfortable at first but you need to get you boot warmed up to mold the inserts. I played a Wii...

Hi Starlyght,
I was in your shoes with the foot volume problem. I think Wired analysis is correct and here was my work around. Note I have a size 8 foot and bought a size 9 Burton Sabbath.

I've got the Now IPO and the thick "Pillow Cushion" acts like autocanting. As for the "Kingpin", I don't skate either but can feel the difference. Note, I like a damp binding (riding in the Ice...

You don't want extremely thick socks. But yeah, the Dakine are kinda thin. As the others have recommended look at Smart Wool and find the ones with extra padding at the toes and heel.

Both actually. I'm looking at 2014 of some other brands but like some of the changes Flow made with the 2015.

Nice! I'm actual thinking about Flow after seeing the You Tube. The feature I'm most interested in; the adjustable highback.

Which model and strap do you recommend for a Burton Custom X?

Make sure your boots are clean and just take your boots into the store; check to see if they fit into the bindings. I like a tight fit, so I'd try to squeeze them into the S/M first.

The Diodes are not that stiff. They are only rated as an 8 on Burton's site and the Highback is nowhere as stiff as CO2 or my old Ride CAD. If you want to go with a softer binding, then you either...

I've also got short wide feet but with high arches and high instep. The widest boot I've tried are the Salomon wide. For comparison, I wear Burton traditional lace boots; they fit me best.

Nope, here is NS site and the SL specs. I tested the SL in 2008 and became a fan of their product line. But I will admit, the 158 will be stiffer and easier to bend than the 155 due to the increased...

The sole of the boot is curved up from the ball of the foot forward. So a boot 10mm longer is not going to create a foot print 10mm longer. To test, damp (very lightly) the bottom of a boot with...

Big is right about board width. I can feel the difference in a .2 mm waist width increase (NS SL 155 vs. 158).

Note: if you want to ride a wider width, you want a more responsive binding. This is...

Mystery and Read are correct about the ride being personal. For example, Read and I are exact opposite opinion on bindings; TT30 and Hologram.

On another note, I love the Now IPO on my Heritage...

Hey Jdang, to each there own but I think Nivek is right with suggesting the DL; I've got the Proto CT (HD is stiffer) and it matched nicely to an old set of TT30. Note, DL and DS have the same...
