I've been reading through the boot forum as well as many other web pages and I'm having trouble locating some info.
I'm looking for a boot like the driver X only with traditional laces. I want something stiff, non boa and non-skinny lace quick do up- that I can use in the BC. Does anyone have any reccomendations? I have bigger feet (11.5 or so) so I'm also looking for reccommendations (if there are any) for smaller overall profile. Obviously gortex would be required as I do a lot of Riding out west and am looking to start doing multi-day tours.
I live close to Toronto in Flat-ario and our anual ski/snowboard show is coming up so that will be a great spot to compare back to back boots and make the right choice.

Have you tried the ThirtyTwo Prime? It's a stiff boot, very comfy. The conditions here are drier than in Onterrible, but I've had enough rain days at Fernie and +10C days slowshoeing to know they do fine when it's wet. I don't think Gore-Tex is going to help much, unless the boot liner is perforated so water vapour can escape. I'd concentrate on having a good sock system to keep your feet comfy.
