i need new boots this winter. I have the 170 ar5's, (mounted center +2), 6' tall and ski 50/50 park/all-mountain.
Last year i got a boot which had the 'hard-value' of 8. (I think 10 is the highest for retail boots) I think it was something like the haed edge 8.0 or so, i dont remember exactly.
what do you ride, and what is good?

I ride atomic t10 boots, I like em :)
Rossi Soft...........or some old nordicas....like 3 or 4 years ago model they're all over the place......black T 1.1 or somthing like that....i've had them for 5 years and they are the best boots ive ever had.....ever......invinciible and comfortable
^I also have rossignols softs. They are so good!! (a little much weight tho).
Don´t eat yellow snow!!
the softs suck get like an atomic try-tec
If you're up for second hand boots i would reconmend last years pro models (or the season before too), i like them.
Edge 8.0 would be fine if you want a soft boot.. if you want something stiffer i sugest to get something else. its the one that fits your feet perfect that are good for start, if youre head works fine i sugest that you stick with head or go for nordica cuz youll problably have a wide foot.. it differs beetween the models thought but the edge boot is problably the widest. you can also go with some salomon boots that have a little wider shell like this years 1080 or the perf 8.0.

Go to a boot fitter and get fit for some boots. Boots ain't like skis brah, they're all the same except for fit. Find a company that fits your foot, and choose the model according to the flex needed. There's no reason to have preference for a certain boot when you go to buy some, because fit is all that matters, find a good boot fitter and your set.
''Independence is for the very few; it is a privilege of the strong. And whoever attempts it even with the best right but without inner constraint proves that he is probably not only strong, but also daring to the point of recklessness. He enters into a labyrinth, he multiplies a thousandfold the dangers which life brings with it in any case, not the least of which is that no one can see how and where he loses his way, becomes lonely, and is torn piecemeal by some minotaur of conscience. Supposing one like that comes to grief, this happens so far from the comprehension of men that they neither feel it nor sympathize. And he cannot go back any longer. Nor can he go back to the pity of men.'' -my buddy, Fred

all depends on your ankel flex, sit in a chair with you legs out and knees bent at a 90 degree angle (no shoes on) then have someone take a ruler in cm and lift your toes up but keep your heel on the ground measure from the floor to the ball of your foot by your pinky toe. if the measurment is over 4 cm you will generally want a stiff boot, below 4cm you will want a softer boot.
