How To Snowboard: Finding the right snowboard boots
Here are a couple tips on how to find the right snowboard boots for you. The Snowboard boot fit is all about comfort. Your toes should be snug to the end of the boot, but not curled. The boots will break in, allowing more room, but they should be mostly comfortable out of the box.
Get your heel all the way in the bottom of the boot and tighten down the heel harness.
Walk around the shop and get a feel for the boots. Make sure your toes are up against the end of the boot, but not curled.
Your feet should be comfortable.
