MEAT AND POTATOES of burton ladies boots
they are gonna hurt...at first. they are gonna grab the ankle and hold it down for dear life. you might start crying like a girl (well, we are girls. so i guess a wussy girl.)
BUT then, after a few days, they are gonna be pretty awesome. The meat and potatoes of Burton Ladies Snowboard Boots.
I put the J bar in only my right (smaller foot) boot. And for once in my life no heel lift. I immediately went to another level.
I have Ride bindings. They did ok with the Burton boot. But not great. I'll prob get burton bindings to match for next season. MAYBE THROUGH DOGFUNK. hmmmmmm....

I need a snowboard boot (women's) that will fit a wider calf - help???
I am a guy with pretty large calves, and i have a horrible time finding boots that will accomodate them. What i have found works best is to sacrafice some stiffness for some comfort, its better to have a little less control but still feel your feet. Also, i always lace my ankle really tight, but the tops looser, that will help some. As far as i know, there are no boots specifically that will accomodate larger calves without getting a larger boot size.
Too narrow or something?
I don't think I have a wide foot but it's not really that narrow either. Anyway, these boots were way too narrow for my feet and my feet ended up falling asleep - that would be horrible if I was on the mt. riding! So if you have wide feet or "not wide but not narrow", don't get Burton boots - DC is the boot to go with if you have any doubts.

i have the saphires from i think 2006 and I have a 7.5 wide. do they make wide widths anymore??
Ok, so I have a weird shaped foot, I've decided. I have never been able to wear a women's specific boot until this year. I have suffered through heel lift of astronomical proportions so I could at least not be in serious pain when riding.
This boot actually holds my heel down most of the time. I do still get some heel lift, so I put the J-bars in that come with the boot and that helped some.
The biggest problem right now, is I'm still in serious pain when riding in them, but they are breaking in.
Day 1: Wanted to cry
Day 2: Could only manage one run my feet hurt so bad from the day before. Took a break.
Day 3: Hurt still, but not as bad.
Day 4: Managed more than one run after riding the previous day. Started at 8:45 , but had had enough by noon.
So, there you have it. I would guess by Days 8-10 they should be getting more broken in and feeling pretty decent.
So yeah, minus the break in time for these boots, I so far really love them. Where I'm not in pain (only around my ankles) they are super comfy!
