    Posted: Dec/30/2006 at 7:23pm
1. Beginner/Intermediate
2. 90% freeride 10% park
3. 5'10
    180 lbs
    20 yrs old
    male
    10.5

I tried on the Burton Hails, Freestyle LTD, & DC Phase in size 10 and they all fit fine, specifically the Hails & Freestyles. Then I tried on the Salomon Brigade and that felt too tight. I have a little bit of a wide foot (not extreme but more than average), and I'm flat footed as well and will be wearing the blue or green superfeet. I dunno if I should go 10 or 10.5 but Im leaning towards 10. I measured my foot and it was a little bit above 10, inbetween 10 and 10.5. I narrowed it down to a few boots & there price

06 Ride Deuce Size 10 120$
05 Flow Torque Size 10.5 100$
06 DC Park Size 10 120$
05 Burton Freestyle LTD 110$

Thanks. Much appreciated

I have somewhat similar stats to you (6'0" 190 size 10) and really like my Salomon Dialogues.  They have a fairly wide bridge, but not excessively so (and they have a wide version if it gets to that point).  I do get a small amount of lift in them, but I haven't had a boot yet where that hasn't been an issue. 
ROLL ON, BISHES.

At the same time, don't think that higher price = more comfort.  I know someone with Malamutes, Salomon's super stiff $300 boot... says they kill him.  My Dialogues are $220 retail, sometimes give me some pain.  The 32 Lashed are $180 retail... those things are super cush.  I tried them on and they were great... I am seriously mulling over picking up a pair.

Wait a week and you'll probably find killer boots at 1/2 price.
$$$ won't always equal comfort but its your best chance to find comfort and a solid (stiff) boot.
