Hi, I am not quite sure which boot to buy out of these two: the Salomon Kiana vs. Burton Emerald. The emerald is quite snug on my foot but passes the toe test when bending my knees but is quite quite snug. On the other hand, the kiana is a little more comfortable but a softer type of boot and due to the lack of snugness i'm worried that when it packs out i might be left with slightly more room then i would with the emerald. I am a high intermediate rider and I suppose i was mainly wondering what I should do considering stiffer vs. a little softer and whether or not if both boots fit will the pack out be so significant on the more comfortable (heel doesnt really lift) that i should go with the very snug one instead so it might fit perfectly when packed out?
