Looking for some new boots

I'm an intermediate/advanced skier, and I ride everything on the mountain. I'm not very good at moguls but I don't want to exclude them either. I'm getting better at the park but I ski everything else too, and I'm looking for some boots, I have a shoe size 12 foot and I am in some old 29.5 ski boots that seem too big (used mount snow rentals i got for super cheap). I have k2 publics 169cm with look px12 bindings if that helps. Obviously I don't want to spend lots of money, over $500 seems pretty ridiculous to me.
I'm going to spend lots of time at different stores trying boots on I know, but do you guys have any initial recommendations?
thanks in advance
Also ill be riding in exclusively new england terrain, no real powder or anything

Hi there,

Well, it is all about fit. The plan is to get boots that match your foot length and don't cause you pain. I tried on dozens of pairs to find the brand that was right for my foot, which has a high arch, wide forefoot, and narrowish heel. Turned out to be Head Edge, which is a very foot-friendly boot and available for cheap money. Yes!! They turned out to be great for my wife as well.

But, don't get hung up on brands and styles. Let your feet buy your boots, not your head. I nearly bought a pair of Lange that were a gorgeous work of art and seemed OK for fit. After 20 minutes in them my feet were begging for mercy. Yes, it takes forever, but your feet will thank you in the end.

Good source for cheap gear is levelninesports.com.
