Default boot opinions

i have several higher end bont boots that i've worn over the years. im looking for a comfortable budget boot, with extra padding, for a second practice set. i've narrowed it down to the bont enduro, luigino strut, and bont pursuit. i want to try something other than bont for once though. i've heard the luigino strut is a very comfortable boot with plenty of padding. any opinions or first hand experience with these three? maybe even a suggestion of another boot that has a little more padding.

I have Luigino Strut, toebox is kinda weird.
It has triangle shape than rather as they are claiming: bare foot technology.

Luigino Challenge has more bare boot shape.

I don't like Luigino's anymore. Even with heatmolding with water inner liner is now loose from glue.....
Well when heatmolding with water warranty is lifetime, but I have no faith so....trash bin....

Default boot opinions

My son uses a pair of Bont Enduros. Very affordable with a minimal break in period. He really liked them. However, they didn't hold up to him. He is very rough on shoes, but these also seemed a bit cheaply made. Great beginner/intro boot, but wouldn't count on it to last.

so that's both boots down. hmm. any suggestions on comfortable padded boots? after heat molding every bont boot i've owned, i'm leaning towards something made a little more "universal" that doesn't need to melted to the shape of my foot. honestly, i think i've become spoiled by my riedell quads boots. i know that's two completely different applications and i shouldn't expect the same. i know the next step is semi race boots but i can't stand to have my ankles clamped in place.

I had Powerslide Puls boots, they fits without any heatmolding.
And padding is made for comfort.
Too bad it is way overpriced compare to stuff they has been using for these boots.....

Forgotten to say older models of Puls boots are not heatmoldable.
Newer ones are very restricted heatmoldable, so you can conclude it is almost same as older ones.....
