4th pair of Optimas
After going through 4 pairs of boots in 2 seasons, I finally found the Optima and have worn nothing else since. The 2008-2009 model shown here is my fourth pair, and they do not disappoint.
As for sizing, I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe and bought a 25 boot. If you buy them, I recommend taking them to a shop to have the liner heat molded. It makes them even more comfortable.

How do these compare to the F22w? Are they better for a narrow, low volume foot?
F22's are super super soft. These are more on the stiff side. Both were really comfy on my wide feet, but I preferred the stiffer boot. As far as sizing goes, I typically wear a 7.5 or 8 in shoes and I bought this boot in a 24.5 and it fits just right.
These boots are fantastic. So warm, so comfortable, sturdy. I can't wait to take them out on epic pow days. I expect these to last more than 100 days this season. Sizing is a little off, I suggest trying them on in person somewhere. I usually wear an 8.5, 9 and I bought 25's which is like a 7.5

So if my last pair of snowboard boots were an 8.5, what do I do here? There is no 8.5 on their sizing chart! I don't want to get ones that are too small, but I don't want too big either... sometimes I wear a 9 in other shoes..
I'm an 8.5 or 9, and I currently have some solomons that are a 25 according to their sizing.
