think vapens are nikes budget boot, see if you can find zoom force 1s, they look dooope.

or 32 ultralight/tm2/lashed are pretty good. 32 86ft look kind of cool but dunno how theyll hold up

wouldnt bother with much else imvvho, maybe burton ions

Sorry mate but complete nonsense.

Burton, DC, Nike, Solomon, Vans etc all make good boots if they're right for you.
Just go and try a load on, pain in the arse but necessary. You need to make sure you buy a pair that fit your foot snugly with minimal heel lift, but I'm sure you know that already. If the Nike ones fit the bill, brilliant but buying based on how they look could be a mistake.

My riding improved 10 fold once I'd bought the right boots (csb)

biggest mistake someone can make is buying snowboard boots based on looks

rookie error

I've not, tried them on
Few weeks ago. Like the wideness of the fit. But walking about in a shop is not boarding. Bit of a blind purchase isn't it?
Thought vans were uncomfortable.
They didn't have in the new Nike 1's.

obviously everyone makes good boots if they suit you.

never got on with salomon, dc lack availability, vans know what theyre doing and ive had several pairs of burton boots, but wouldnt be my first choice if i was buying completely from scratch…

Anyone fancy chucking a copy on DVD please? No idea about downloading stuff, it always goes wrong or I can't put it on DVD.
