I'm very new to snowboarding-- only been once so far, but I really liked it and want to continue. However, I want to get my own boots since I have a low volume foot and the rental boots were too big in the heel and too wide for me---plus I use custom footbeds in my ski boots and think I need them in snowboard boots as well, as I ended up with arch strain in my left foot. Anyway, I've been doing some reading and some places say that not all boots are compatible with all bindings . . . .is this still true ( I was thinking they may be referring to older step in bindings)? So my question is, if I want to buy boots but am not yet ready to purchase a board, am I likely to run into compatibility issues between the bindings and any boots I might get? I was hoping to just get boots for now and continue to rent for a while until I improve and have a better idea of what I want in a board. Thanks.
