Not to rush you, but you may not find any better deals that you will this weekend. I would try on boots at your local store then get online and look for Black Friday deals. You could save up to 70%. My Hotrods retailed for just over $500, I got them online for $189 in the sales. Just make sure they have a return policy if you haven't tried them on before. Buying boots blind can be a crap shoot for fit.
Interesting. I'll see if I can swing by a sports store tomorrow and try a few on. But in regards to modifications, since skiboards have different bindings, it's not quite a step-in like ski bindings. I noticed on some video that you need a modified heel to click into the bindings? I could be wrong though.
And with the receptor bindings, would I be using ski boots or snowboard boots? Or can I use either of them (hardshell snowboard boots?)
The heel pieces you are referring to are a specialist set up that uses hardboot/Alpine/carving snowboard boots with matching bindings. This is a very rare set up that is not commonly used.
You are looking to buy regular ski boots to use with either non release skiboard bindings, like the Receptors, or regular ski bindings, either on risers or direct fix. No modifications required.
If you get the Revolts with Receptor bindings you just need regular ski boots and you are good to go.
The advice you should be asking for is "Where are the good bootfitters in your area". If you were near me I would send you to my local shop where my wife got her boots. A good bootfitter will not only fit your feet but also your budget.
NOO! The skiboards are sold. The guy forgot to take of kijiji! ((( Bakc to hunting!
Actually don't know how many pairs I have!

Hm. I'm possibly going with skiboots. Bindings are cheaper and I like the security of a harder boot shell
Now I bought at a bootfitter, haven't tried them yet (soon) but they will make adjustments for free, and if the boot still doesn't work will give me credit towards another boot.
Take the advice, don't make the same mistake as I.
I just purchased my first skiboard used from a SBOL user. Looking forward to receiving them in the mail! Will take pictures when I get it!
Also, looking for bindings for it now! :P
Finally received them in the mail!
Now I need release bindings!
