    Hey guys, Since I could not find much information pitting these boots against each other, I decided to do a topic myself. First of all, let's set the scene: Been riding for a long time between 2 and 3 weeks per year. Took a break from 22 to 26-ish because I lived pretty far from the snow at that...

    Hi, I am thinking about getting the Burton Step Ons - but I've have had some trouble with sizing. It seems like only the Photons has a wide version for the step-ons, but supposedly photons are very aggressive in terms of stiffness (Burton Photon vs Ion). As for my current boots Salamon Dialogue...

    Female - mid 30s, 5'3 about 170 lbs. Still a newbie and feeling SO frustrated with backwards progression - my friends have all gone onto charging down blues and I feel like everytime I go I get worse instead of better. Right now my feet falling asleep is the biggest problem. In looking for...

    Specifically, using the broken in liner of my 8.5 Maysis that didn't fit properly in the boot of my new 8.5 ride fuses. In the fuses, with insoles and a heel wedge I feel just a bit too much pressure, to the point that I'm not sure they will pack out enough. But with the liners from the maysis...

    I’ve been in the market for boots for a while, and it got me thinking. Why isn’t it a more common recommendation to try boots on barefoot? Without socks (especially padded snowboard socks) on, it seems WAY easier to feel how in contact/not in contact you are with boot liners. Thoughts?

    Hey guys, I switched from size 12 32 TM2 boots to size 10.5 Burton Ions just over a year ago. Unfortunately the burtons have been giving me heel lift issues after breaking in. I have tried insoles, J bars, etc. Nothing seems to help. I am suspecting that I didn't buy the correct boots, even...

    OK. I have been creeping on the boot fit forums for the last year. I started in a men’s size 10 after ---of course--- getting bad boot fit advice. This was almost a decade ago. At that point in my snowboarding I was only riding maybe 5 times per year. I loved snowboarding but my feet would...

    Hi everyone, So I just recently ordered Burton Rulers and the step on bindings a few weeks ago and I tried it out for the first time today at the mountain. It took me while to fit my feet in my boots and once in, it feels very tight and snug. I also can't really wiggle my toes or feet once my...

    I am having a major issue finding pants that fit over my Salomon pearl boots. The boots have a basic BOA locking system for the laces and a bulky liner for insulation. I've attached a picture of the boots below. I previously had a pair of Alpine Design snowboard pants and currently use Outdoor...

    What’s up guys n gals!! It’s my first post here and I was trying to get some insight on what waist board width Would best suit me. I’m set on the Bataleon Boss but not sure what size to get. I’m 5’11 at 170lbs with a size 28cm foot (27.94 to be exact) I think I’ll either be on a 10 or 10.5 boot...

    Hello guys, I have been struggling to find a pair of boots since my feet are flat wide and short. Today i got help from a local shop Snowbitch (in Prague) and went for Deeluxe Choice PF. It is a size UK 7, EUR 40.5, M 26. Even though my feet are 247mm i think theese are ok. Originally the...

    Hi all - I’m having a reoccurring problem where my feet get cold/numb halfway through a day of riding (mid 20’s low 30’s temp). My normal shoe size is a W8.5 and my first rental pair of boots were a 7.5, to which they were faaaar too tight so I sized up to an 8 for the season, but I’m still...

    Is there any difference other than the design and the powerstrap between Vans Infuse vs Vans Jamie Lynn LTD? I was about to buy the Infuse, but if they are the same boot and fit, i would probaly go for the Jamie Lynn, since they match my Niche Maelstrom quite well. I know fit is way more...

    Hello, Finally decided to measure my feet properly. It seems my right foot (the longest) is 27.7 long and 10.7 wide, so would be a 10US. I am wearing Adidas Acerra in size 11. If I recall correctly, at the time I tried the 10 and did felt too tight lenght wise and they did not have a 10.5. I...

    Hi Everyone, Can anyone recommend a good place in the Chicago area to get fitted for some new boots, ideally heat molding and that fun stuff also? It looks like Viking, Burton, and King Kaiser are the main options. Does anyone have experience with them (or know of any others)? Thanks!
