Big foots gotta session, too.
Fat-footed freestylers, meet your boot: the Salomon Dialogue Snowboard Boot. This boot's versatile mid flex delivers increased board feel in the park without compromising response for bombing down to a backcountry booter. Salomon's Biocage liner uses self-molding foam for comfort and a cushy feel all day long. When you're coming up to a nasty double kink, you'll appreciate the super lightweight and ultra thin Dolby sole and its shock-absorbing ADIPRENE compound.

I have these boots and love them (over 100 days on them) but my laces are shot ... where can I get replacements?
Any board shop should have some around or atleast get you some no problem.
Finally a Wide Snowboard Boot
Another first from Salomon! Wide snowboard boots that don't take up much more space, awesome. Salomon boots are great out of the box, and continue to perform year after year. I have these boots for park/spring days since they are softer then the Synapse or Malmute.
After two days, my boots are so broken in, they turned into uncontrollable, unusable mush.
I did research, I paid retail 209, I went through professional fitting.

Should I buy wide boots. Will i need different bindings to the snow board for the wide boot?
No, you won't need different bindings.
Any normal binding will work. I have used several from different manufacturers; all needed a little more adjustment but fit fine!
Used these for all mountain riding and they lasted forever! I have a heel lift issue and these are great for keeping the heel down. I have tried DCs and had trouble with heel lift. The Salomons don't seem to have that problem. I am buying a pair of Malamutes, because I think a stiffer boot will serve me better, but never had any issues with the Dialogues, just packed in from 5 years of riding. I would say the entire Salomon line has it right. These aren't about cool kids, just function for real riders.
I have heard K2 also makes a great boot. I have heard Burton has breakage issues with their boot hardware, but I have a Burton Air board and toecap bindings and they are the bomb.
