I'm getting Capita Birds of Feather and I don't know what bindings and boots to go with.

https://www.capitasnowboarding.com/s...s-of-a-feather

Looking for all-mountain boots with the casual lacing.

I've had head boots for years and I think it's time to get new ones, they are size US7 EUR39,5 and Flex2.

I don't mind getting similar boots and the only reason I'm getting new ones since my current ones have started to wear off.

Weight : 59kg / 130lbs
Height : 168 cm / 5'6''?
Gender : Female
Boot size : 39
Riding style : All Mountain
Age : 18
budget : None
Your location of riding : Iceland

Thanks ahead!

Got from your other thread that you intend to order the entire setup online. And your former boots were probably men's boots.

To order board and binding online without having tried them will work well, but I'd be concerned with the boots... Different brands and models will fit very differently to ones feet (e.g. room in toebox, tightness around the ancle, hight of bootleg, heelhold). If you were fine with men's boots, I assume, you have rather wide feet? Under this assumption, I'd say stay away from women's Burton and Ride boots, since they are rather narrow.

Do you have absolutely no option to try boots in your area?

Well there are few shops in the capital that have good equipment but I'm not going there before the season and there is a tiny shop in town but no choices. Not talking about the price. Shoes I could buy online are very likely to cost double here at home.

Thanks!
