Make sure they fit comfortabley. Which means your toes shouldn't be jammed up against the end of the boot. Make sure you have no heel lift, unless you REALLY force it, and if you get pressure points AT ALL, take the boot off, and go try on something else. That's pretty much what I learned the hardway, in a nutshell.

I used Rulers when I first started snowboarding. Verdict - soft and mushy, stay away. If you are determined to stay with Burton spend a little more and get the Drivers or the Ions.

There are several important questions you need to answer first. What kind of riding do you do? Where do you ride? How often do you go riding? How good are you (honestly)? If you are an all mountain rider looking for a decent amount of support then the Rulers are great. If you are a jibber, they will suck because they will be too stiff.

Regarding the Ions and Drivers, do not get the Drivers unless you are a freerider or weigh over 200 pounds. They are very stiff. The Ions are great, but expensive and are a little stiffer than the Rulers. The main difference is the liner.

Sounds like what you want out of the boots. However, your best bet is to try it on. I hate soft boots with a passion. They tend to hurt my feet and it just feels awful altogether for me.
