The best advice with boots is always go and try some one.

I've got size 13 and wide feet so always struggle to find boots that fit. I got some DC Judge's about 10 years ago and have stayed with this model ever since. They have the double BOA and are super comfy. BUT they fit my feet and we all have different shaped feet.

Walk into any snowboard shop and try on as many as you can before they get annoyed. We all know that boots are really important and make the difference between a comfortable day's riding and a pain in the arse day.

I can tell you that I pretty much love the double BOA system and have never had any problems with it.

If the tongue could move around ie up or down with your foot in the boot laced up what does that say about the boot volume and sizing you were using ?

My guess is you were possibly 1-2-3 mondo sizes oversized

Too start you need to accurately measure your feet lenghts and widths weighted with ankles flexed in mm .
Boot lenghts are marked in mm/mondo/japan so match that to your feet measurements in lenght ,this is to start the process .
Your personal tolerance may agree or disagree with a mondo sized fit on lenght but its correct and heat fitting must be taken into consideration .

If your feet are wide you look at Salomon 2EE wides or Burton 3EEE Wides .

Most all entry boots like Motos will be high volume generic fitting

The links above are semi informative but offer nothing on sizing feet so are nothing more than just sales/marketing .
Your going to come across alot of that and less of your accurate foot sizing which is where it all starts .
