you have to try boots on.  end of story.  any suggestion anyone gives you is irrelevant.  go get fitted in a shop.  there is literally no other way to find out what fits.

everyone else that posts is going to reiterate the same thing... watch.

Reiteration. . . .

Sorry it's true and sometimes a pain in the butt when you are really interested in a couple that you can't find carried anywhere near you
Like everything else in snowboarding, it's all preference!

buy a few from endless.com then send back the ones you don't want.  Free return shipping.  Also the Thirty Two ultralights are noticeably lighter than other boots.

Only other option is to find a site with a good returns policy (like endless.com or shoes.com) that carries snowboard boots. Then you need to read a billion reviews and try to find something that sounds like someone with the same feet as you.

By the time you've done all that, and probably returned some boots that didn't fit (driving to the UPS Store with a pre-paid label), you probably coulda gone to a store and tried a few on. Even if that store was a hike.

Check reviews and try some on.  I can tell you which ones you could get, but you would either like them or hate them.  Spend some cash on good ones though, that's the only advice I can give you.

The best boot in the world, it's super light and way comfy is this one that you can get by trying a bunch on.  It's way sweet.

AHAHAHA Krazylegs every time i see your posts i gotta crack up. 

As for the boot situation; REITERATION!!! Seriously you have to try the boots to find ones you like. Generally the more expensive ones are the most comfortable. Go try it on at a store and then decide if you want it. Personally i ride my K2 T1 DB's and they are amazing. Love the feel, love the flex, love the grip, the warmth, and especially the comfort.

My Vans were really comfy, but they fell apart after two seasons, so even though they refunded my money(I paid 90 bucks), I def can't get another pair without having to shell out more money, so I might try some DC boots this time around.

Make sure you decide early on if you want BoAs or laces. Will help narrow down your search quite a bit :)

I owned 3 boots and all were Burtons and all comfortable.
I got wide feet and Burtons fit me great, I'm sure there are other companies that fit wide feet but didnt want to switch when I'm happy with the ones I got.

I'd never buy DC boots...I have so many pair of DC shoes and they all fall apart (but look so fresh!)

My buddy suggested 32s so I went and tried 3 pair on at the shop and not a single one fit because of my high arches. The sales lady suggested Ride boots and I'm currently rocking the Ride Orions (cause they were cheap, and I needed boots) and I love them.

Next season I will get another set of Ride boots but I'm going to go with boa coilers instead of standard laces because the laces on these ones end up loosening up throughout the day (and I keep forgetting to check them!)

I would suggest going to a local shop to try boots on and then purchase them online.

This concept kills the local shops, you go waste their time trying on their boots then after you wasted all their time you go buy from another place.....

This is what causes them to go out of business.

you should go try the boots before buying them.  everyone's feet are shaped differently.  depending on the length and the width of your feet, some brands (and models) will feel differently from others.

some brands tend to size larger and others smaller.  i personally have dc judge, and they tend to be smaller than others.  but, without trying them on, there's no way to feel them out.

Definitely spend a few hours at different shops trying them on, walk around the store, walk some stairs, etc... its a process, you'll be glad later. 
I just switched to Salomon savage, most other boots run too tight in the toes for me, but these give you the wiggle room I want but are snug and soft elsewhere.. perfect for me

IOFractal...I agree 100%. Personally, I never buy any clothing online. It was just a selection for saving money, as the OP seems like he wants to buy from this online website we are posting on right now.

It seems to me that most online stores have the same prices as my local shops. However, when my local shops have their clearance sales, it is cheaper there, but the selection is less. And then if you are looking for last years stuff, there is a better selection online and the local shops are usually sold out.

I bought all my stuff at the shop but am getting all of my daughter's stuff online.

don't be swayed by lacing systems.  Boa is overated, imo.  Both salomon powerlace pro and burton's system are good

I'm a huge fan of the DC Judges boot.  I've worn them for approx 4 seasons and have not had any issues with them.  The newer ones out are very light and very comfortable.  They are a medium stiffness and perform equally well on the mountain as well as the park.  The dual BOA is a nice system.

I ride with the DC Judge boots and there awsome. Includes the boa lace system, great support, very comfy. The new model has the double boa system also to cater for fitting problems, how can you go wrong??

When I bought mine, I order a lot of different kind boot from REI and go try on at the store.
If you don't like it, just return them.

You can go snowboard store as well. I just don't like they putting pressure on you ...
