The Burton Hails are the mother of all freestyle boots. I have 09 and 10 models. The 10s are a little softer but have superior heel hold. Super comfortable with enough flex to make a contortionist bashful. Perfect for the park and if you wanna go in the backcountry and stomp a 20 foot kicker just tighten your bindings and you'll be solid. Not to mention they look so good snow bunnies will come and try to lick the snow off of them.
