dude, if u been eyeing for a long time and u need the boots then just get them. When the deal is over, you will be kicking yourself for not buying it at less than half price.

Nothing wrong with the boots I have now. I want these boots but I don't need them. Hence why I'm posting the deal.

I watched these drop from 220 to 170 and now 137.

The ideal fit is when your toes are touching the front of the boot as the liner will pack out and become bigger with a few days of use. It's really hard to fit snowboard boots because of this. You also have to avoid pressure points and make sure the boot ankle fit matches your ankles. What I mean by that is that there needs to be a proper ankle fit so that your ankle is locked down into the boot.

This is the ideal fit but its hard to reach unless you put a lot of effort into trying on boots. You get a lot more board control with a proper boot fit.

Hmmm, sounds like one of those things I should avoid buying online without trying in store first. Thanks for the advice.

+1 Ankle lock down is keeey! I didn't know when I was a beginner. It doesn't limit your skill progression, but if you're just gliding on toe side for a long cat trail, the flat of your feet will burn because you're essentially "tippy toeing" through the whole thing.
I ended up modifying my boots by getting heel lifts to fill the space. Not only should you try boots on in store, but take an aggressive carving position, squat down, bent knees, lean on toe and heel sides and feel how locked down your feet are.

Similar to your method - I had usually put on 2 different boots in store and tighten them to comfort then do a flat footed jump (not off the toes). The boot with less heel lift is the better fitting boot.
There's also stiffness of the boot which is a whole another world of preferences.
