Default Ladies Boots

Hi! I am looking for a pair of ladies snowboard boots, up until now I have rented. I want to know which brands are going to last, and which features are worth it. Example: heat moldable liner, special lacing system, etc.
Any help appreciated

The ones that fit your foot nothing else matters.

THIRTY TWO Women's - Girl's Ultralight Snowboard Boot
Thirty Two Boots are some of the best in the Industry and these ones are wicked light which makes you forget that you have snowboards boots on. (worth the extra money!)

FORUM 09 Women's Aura Snowboard Boot
Out-of-the-box comfort at a great price. Like most of the modern boots, an internal lace up system keeps your heal in the heal-cup. On a toe side turn you should not feel like you're gonna fall out of your boots...

Do NOT wear two socks. I prefer thin socks (sometimes dress socks if my snowboard socks are dirty) and a tight fitting boot. A sloppy boot fit will hinder performance.

I'd try a few brands to see what fits your foot best, and not concentrate too much on the special lacing systems, etc.

However, one that a lot of girls like, that you should at least try on is BOA. It's got a little knob that you turn to tighten your laces - which is a lot nicer on your hands - it seems like a lot of girls who are newer to snowboarding struggle with traditional laces because pulling them tight can be really tough on your hands. Some people don't like BOA tho, so make sure to try it on!

Each brand fits feet a bit differently - so maybe folks could steer you towards some specific brands if you share a little about your foot shape? I've heard good things from girls about Northwave and Salomon, but they tend to be a bit narrower, while Burtons and 32's tend to be fairly wide. I've had good luck with Vans lately, which are narrower around the heel and wider around the toe box. I've also heard good things about k2's latest boots.

I haven't had great luck for durability with 32's recently. They totally fell apart after about 30-40 days of riding. - the material cracked at the ankle where the boot flexes, and just started ripping farther and farther back towards the heel.

Keep in mind that you may need to size down from your normal shoe size for a snug fit!

Also, you might ask around on shred betties - a ton of girls on there, so there'd be some more personal experiences from a female perspective.

so did i.

and i hope that our being able to predict this, helps to impress upon the original poster how true it is!

nothing else matters when compared to the quality of fit.

but if the hope was to see a reduction in choice of what to go for, my missus still likes her 32s (prion i believe) and continues rate them over the last few seasons

Like already stated, it is all based on what feels the best on your feet. With that being said, just like Paolo's missus, mine has a pair of 32 Exus that she absolutely loves, I just bought her a pair of the new 32 shop edition Lashed to match mine, but that was only after her trying them on a few dozen times and saying that they were very comfortable. We could tell you 32, K2, etc., but it's what fits you best and makes you feel comfortable. Remember, you may have a day where you wear them all day.

32 boots = 32 days they're done.
