I am trying to get my first boots but I'm not sure about the size.

I used to wear 7.5 for the rental Burton boots. Right now I want to buy a Ride boots but I'm not sure if I should get a 7.5 or a 8 because I heard Burton's shoe size is larger than other brands.

Please help me~~ thanks

My experience is the opposite, i can use a ride 13 but a burton 13 is to small. You really should try on boots, its much better to find out what fits your foot.

I bought new boots a couple of months ago and tried on bunches of different brands. I didn't find any of them to fit bigger or smaller in the foot. I wear a 7. All the 7s fit.

It was more about the heel fit (whether it was sloppy), whether I felt like I could snug the laces down enough, if the base was cushy enough, etc.

I would go try them on in person.

Agreed, I would try on if possible.

I have a pair of '13 size 12 ride insano's and a pair of '13 size 12 burton driver x. Both fit me well.
No idea what your saying, are you saying your shoe size is 13 and you wear a size 12 boot:dizzy:

... that for his feet, a size 12 of both brands of two 2013 models fit the same. Perfectly fine information :dunno:


I formerly had a Burton Emerald. When I got the Ride Cadence I chose it a size bigger cos they are very snug around the ankle. A Ride in the same size would have fitted the length of the foot as well but would have been too tight around the wrist/ankle. But that is due to my high wrist.

So OP: each foot is different, absolutely try the boots.
