What boot should i get?
I am getting burton mission bindings large for my burton custom x 158 board. I don't have much money left to spend but i need a good pair of snowboarding boots. I wear a size 12.
ummmm... I hope a store didn't sell you that set up. If you are a size 12 boot, you need a wider board.
The custom x will usually take up to an 11, but any more and you're going to get toe or heel drag, unless you ride with your bindings at pretty extreme angles.
I would trade up for a wide board, or at least a mid-wide.
I am a size 12, and used a normal board for a season, and it sucked. I now have the K2 Titan (wide version of the Zepplin) and I love it. I've now been snowboarding for over a decade, and would never use a normal width board again. Source(s): work in a board shop
Ok, you made the same mistake I did. You bought your bindings before your boots. You should ALWAYS buy boots before bindings, so you can make sure your boots fit the bindings you buy snugly. I'm not saying your stupid or anything, I made the same mistake buying my first board, It's just something you know not to do now.
I hope that CustomX is wide too, cause If not, it'll be too narrow for your feet. Size 12 and up = large binding AND wide board. So if it's not wide, your toe drag is gonna be insane, or you need to ride duck-footed (aggressive binding angles). If you can manage to sell it, MFMs pro model with Nitro is wide and is a great park board from what I hear.
Some great brands of boots to look at are Burton- http://burton.com , Vans- http://vanssnow.com , and 32- http://thirtytwo.com
Since you bought the binding first, make sure that the boot your buying fits snugly, and have a sick time snowboarding

When buying boots i usually recommend just going into a shop and trying on all the boots that fit into your price range and going with the ones that feel the most comfortable. Regardless of the brand or the style or colour of the boot, as its vitally important that your boots fit you well and when they are in your bindings you can hardly see them anyway so even if they look a bit dodgy noone will notice them.
But as you have bought bindings already it makes it a bit more tricky as your boots need to fit your bindings well and many makes of boot dont seem to fit Burton bindings that well, i know this from experience as ive had the same problem myself. Obviously you will be ok with Burton boots and Thirty two boots seem to fit Burton bindings well, but you basically need to take your bindings down to the shop when buying your boots to check the fit is good if you do this you should be ok. Good Luck.
burton makes the best boots
