hey all

well i am going to be new to the sport this winter and i am looking for new boots for the year. my question to you experience ones is what boot do you ride and what you like about it n what you suggest would be a better boot? what feel do you need when the board is split in the climbing mode? what brand are good? Salomon, Ride, Burton, Thiry-Two, Northwave? tell me what you think. the bindings i will be riding are Burton Missions. Thank you for you input.

Hey man, welcome to the forum, but, umm, you don't need to ask this question! Take a look at all the threads in this forum! You'll find that everyone has different preferences, and that even depends on what they're doing that day. Basically, I would say that the requirements for a backcountry boot are pretty much the same as front country... If it's comfortable for you and fits your foot pretty well, it could be a good bc boot. Anyway, every other thread is already anserwing this question for you.



:D

Good point... Because everything I rode last year, I throw away right before the season starts. :shock:

Okay, for the record, I'm just giving you a good-natured hard time, and to prove it, I'll say, I've got some scarpa invernos that I'm looking to use this year with the Voile mountain plates. I tried them last year, and didn't like the laces loosening up on me. This year, I'm hoping to put a heel strap over the top of it stop that from happening, we'll see how it works out. Soft boots, still looking...
