Which boarding boots???
I have a forum peterline board and burton bindings...does anyone have a good suggestion on boots??
the right snowboard boot is really important and the only way to really find the boot that works best for you is to head on down to the nearest gear store and start trying some on.
but... to give you some guidelines as for what to try on... i'll give a few suggestions:
Salomon F20 Snowboard Boots: great for people with big feet because of its shorter outsole length. good for riding a narrower, responsive board. very lightweight.
DC Park Snowboard Boots: very comfy and supportive with a thinner sole, no toe drag, and lighter weight.
K2 T1 Snowboard Boots: this boot gives great control and has a great lacing system. The outer uses traditional laces so you can snug them up tight or loose. Their upper is made stiff for maximum support on steep runs and quick board control on hard runs. very durable.
Burton Hail Snowboard Boots: tons of padding underfoot eliminates shock and an articulated cuff allows for a great fit and awesome support without that clunky ski-boot feeling that you want to stay away from.
Northwave Decade SL Snowboard Boots: comfy and supportive. also, easier to walk in than most, so it isn't so hard to walk when you're not on your board.
hope some of these helped. i've heard they're all great boots and i own a pair of the DC Park boots. i like em. so check a few of these out. i have a website to prove how good they are (see the link in the source - it's also got some other good boots you might wanna check out) =]

well personally i have a k2 board and burton bindings. theres no certain brand if I were you i would go to the local ski shop and find a pair that are comfortable.
From personal experience, 32 boots are the most comfortable boots to buy. I had Ride boots but they got torn up pretty easily. Our snowboard rental shop gets a lot of complaints form people who buy K2 boots because the laces fray too easy.
I work at a snowboard shop in Big Bear Lake, CA.
The most important part of the board-binding-boot trio is definitely the boot. I have had crappy boots and good boots and the crappy oens aren't worth it.
1) DEMO! Most ski areas have ski shops that let you demo boots, so go in and ask a snowboard person to talk to you about boots. they may not know everything but they do know something and most of them have tried the boots too so they can give you pointers. if there is a girl snowboarder in the shop, you definitely want to talk to her.
2) I have had great luck with both burton and vans. I hate, hate, hate salomon boots (though their boards are phenomenal).
The best boots for you are the ones that fit your feet best. The thing i recommend people to do is to go down to your local snowboard shop with a price in mind and try on all the boots that fit into that price range. Dont worry about the brand or style too much just look for comfort over everything else, its vitally important that your boots fit you well if they dont you will find riding in them a nightmare.
To be honest its best to get your boots before youve got your board and your bindings as not all boots fit all bindings that well. As youve got Burton bindings, Burton boots will be fit ok and Thirty two boots seem to fit well in Buton Bindings also. You need to take your board down to the shop with you when getting your boots to check the fit is alright. Ive made the mistake of buying some bindings without checking the fit with my current boots, and ended up having to sell them as the fit wasent good. Hope this helps good luck.
