Does anyone have any suggestions for a good softboot for my wife? She is not digging her current boots at all. Thanks.

My fiance loved her 2010 DC Judges up until about 50 days when the forward flex started to really soften up. They were a great fit for her foot although since it's a men's boot it came a little high on her calf and initially gave her some pain there.

With any boots it's VERY worth it to go to a shop with good boot person. It's tough to find for snowboard boots though. But a good shop can definitely measure up her foot and depending upon her foot find a manufacturer and model that is a good fit for her.

Good luck!

My lady uses the Burton Axel for inbounds and spliting. They seem to treat her well. She also used some DCs, but I'm not sure which model. She shreds pretty hard in them.

The only way to shop for boots is to try them on. They vary radically in fit from brand to brand and model to model.

This.

You can narrow down options by the stiffness, type of boot you want. The only way to know if they are going to work for you is to go into the shop and buy them. This is why boots are the one thing I won't buy online. Of course if you live in the boonies this may not be an option...
