salomon or burton boots??
 
i looked at salomon boots, dialogue and maori, both fit well. Which is a better boot? A local shope said i should look into Burton freestyle or moto. what do you all think?

Go with what fits better with a lesser price tag.
Therefore Salomon. Salomon you will pay alot cheaper for the same quality boot.

I have always like salomon boots better than burton. I have had both boots and like salomon better.

Although I have never tried Salomon boots, I just bought some 2009 Burton Ion boots today. I tried several different boots on and these were by far the most comfortable and the speed-lacing system is pretty cool. They retail for an expensive $350 but you can find them for less than $250 now.

Just picked up FreeStyles today. Been wearing them for an hour now, breaking them in. THey were by far the most comfortable. I tried on a few pairs too. 2 different places and all the shop guys were steering me to regular old lace ups. I was looking at ones with BOA and speed lace but I just want an easy fix if im on a hill and a lace breaks. The guys at the stores said that was the reason they like lace up. Im happy and they feel great. Tried on 2 Flows and those thangs were stiff! Didn't feel good AT ALL..

He said they were the most comfortable when walking around his home, but when he would snowboard his feet got mega sore. He would loosen the bindings and they would still hurt. When I was riding with him one of the liners in his boot slipped out aswell as his foot.

He needs some inserts it sounds like. Gotta keep em laced tight and bound well too. I was worried they had major issues. Thanks for the info. One more question, what level rider is your friend?

YanTheMan 02-24-2009 07:46 PM

Yeah some inserts would probably help. Hes Id say intermediate. Pretty fast, can pull of pretty big 180's and sometimes 360's.
