  #2  Snowboard boots comfort  Posted 07/11/2017 @ 07:02
I have recently purchased a pair of Salomon Launch but they were torturing my feet. Now I am on a lookout for new boots and have tried few pairs, really looking for something that will actually fit my odd feet properly (wide toecap, fairly narrow heel). After trying about 20 different pairs of boots Burton Ion fits the best. Really feels nice on my feet. I am concerned about the stiffness rating of this model though. It is 2018 version rated as stiff. I am a beginner, can link turns fine just working on my switch at the moment. What do you think, is it worth prioritising comfort over softness of the boot for a beginner? (32 Lashed was the next best thing but to get some comfort I had to a size higher - normally I am 11 but had to go 12 with 32 Lashed to feel I have enough room) Would I get away with riding Burton Ion or would it affect my progression?

you could ask wiredsport on snowboarding forum. he is very helpful if you stick up some photos of your feet being measuered for mondo sizing.

Ion's are awesome boots but yeah they are stiff for a beginner. They will kick your a$$ if you're not careful. Stiff boots translate more of your movement to the board so poor technique will not be tolerated. It may be tougher at first but you will get used to them and longer term they will improve your riding.

You might want to sack off learning switch and concentrate on going forwards for now, until you are comfortable riding in your new boots

Hi I have the same problem

the best boots I have used with a wide fitting are the Lash Thirty Two they

are very comfortable and last all day with no niggles and wide foot.

probably one if not the most comfortable boot on the market
