cant decide on boots..
alright well i have been boarding for quite some time now, but over the last say 4 years i have not gone out. today i just went out and bought a brand new board and binding for my birthday getting ready to the winter season.. and i seen these boots with the boa system!

i have heard good and bad things about them... just curious if someone could help me a little more about them, are they worth getting or should i just get the regular boots. lace 'em up your self?

any advice will help thanks!

Go and try them on. If they are the most comfortable boot out of all the ones you try on, buy them. If they aren't - don't buy them. There is nothing better about BOA -vs- lace up boots except that you can tighten your boots quicker than with laces. But that means nothing if they hurt like hell.

Having owned both, IMO I can lace up my Salomon F22's just as fast as I could "lace up" my DC Allegiance's.

+1 for trying them on before you choose.

I've got Forum Recon's. I went in and tried on lots of different boots before I decided on the best ones for me. Try on different brands, different styles, etc. Don't limit yourself to a lace-up or BOA, or this brand or that brand. Try on ALOT of different ones and you'll know it when you find the ones for you.

Truth. Go to your local shop and try on a bunch of different types of boots. There is no substitute for it. In my shop i will have people try on 5-10 pairs of boots before i ask them which ones felt the best and then i will have them try on a few of the same pairs again.

I personally own a pair of thirty two focus boa's, a pair of Burton Freestyles and a pair of Salomen Symbios. They all have their ups and downs, BOA vs. Lace vs. Quick Lace

Try a bunch on
