Snowboard Boots. If you know, you know. Snowboard boots are probably the most difficult to get just right. It’s worth measuring your feet and checking the size chart for each individual brand if you’re buying online or better yet try them on in a shop then use sameway.co to secure the best price online! If you have wide feet then go for 32 or Burton snowboard boots. For those with chronic heal lift we recommend Adidas, Ride or Vans snowboard boots. When it comes to lacing you have two main options, the BOA lacing system or standard laces. This is really down to preference but at Sameway Co. we prefer standard laces. It means you can more easily determine the tightness of your boot without giving yourself foot cramp or burning toes caused by no blood flow to your toes and feet.With BOA it’s easy to go too tight without meaning to. Standard laces do loosen up throughout the day however so they may need a retighten during your lunch stop. We find that standard laces have a bit more give in them when dropping climbs or hitting large or XL kickers in the snow park. Boots are arguably more important than your snowboard and snowboard bindings. If your feet hurt or your heal is lifting you won’t be riding for very long or getting the most out of your lift pass.
