It seems to be a pretty even split with the team riders between the white Murray boots and the Mareks. Both are designed to give you a ton of ankle support. If you want a high end boot with a little more flexibility then you are looking at the Audio's which is Ruck's new boot.
I personally like the looks of the Marek's.

As far as the Hyperlite boots for 09 go, I'd agree with Kyle that it'd be between the Murrays, Marek, and Audio boots. Coming off the Atlas boots, I'm sure the Mareks will not only be supportive, but considered stiff. The Murrays look great for this year, and from what I've heard will provide a supportive, but more flexible feel than the Marek boot. The Audio had more flexability in mind. But hey, you gotta ride em, not me! Good luck, and congrats on the sponsorship!

Just a thought...You might not want to publicly criticize the products of the company sponsoring you & providing free gear!

Congrats on the sponsorship!

I agree with Kat you should never bad mouth a hook up!

As for the 09's go with the audios.

isn't hyperlite more of an indirect sponsor through the dealer he is sponsored by? either way, ya, i'd agree, say only nice things and you need not whisper.

i have not ridden any of the new HY boots, but the '09 Murray boots got a few changes. the liner is different and wraps around kinda like the LF boots and the footbed is different as well as the plates. I would definitely cruise down to your shop and try all the boots on in the shop if you cant actually put them on some boards and give them a full demo.

i messed around with the Marek at a boat show and it seemed the laces did not glide through the boot well and it was a little difficult to loosen and lace up... but maybe that was because the boot was not wet and it was new and not broken-in yet?

Just go try them all on

maybe these vids will help in the mean time

if you not looking for a stiff binding then stay away from the marek boots. i got them and love them. but i like my bindings very stiff. i also have the new byerly boas and they are very comfortable and not super stiff. plus you can adjust the forward lean on them to exactly where you want with the boa. i have only tried on the audios for a second so cant give you advise about those and the same goes for the murray boot. i do know that the new murray boot is much better than the 08 model so i wouldnt turn you back on those boots all the way

The 09 murray boots had several key design changes to them to make them a more fluid fitting boot that moves with you but burly enough to give tons of hold. The most noticeable change is the tongue/liner. It is now a wrap style liner and thinner, more flexible tongue without the pressre points of last years. As said above, for this year the mareks are the stiffest, the murrays are medium and the audios are softer. Depending on your preference you can go from there.

THE NEW BSIDE AND THE AUDIO BOOTS ARE WHERE ITS AT THIS YEAR. HYPERLITE HIRED A NEW BOOT DESIGNER SO THERE BOOTS THIS YEAR ARE INSANELY COMFY. THE MURRAY AND AUDIOS ARE BASICALLY THE SAME BOOT, JUST THE AUDIO HAS A LOWER SUPPORT SO ITS ALL ABOUT PREFERENCE. THE MURRAYS ARE JUST A LITTLE HIGHER AND OFFER A LITTLE MORE SUPPORT.

ALSO THE B-SIDE IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST CONSISTANT BOARDS IN THE LINE. THE SPEED OF THE OLD 3DS AND THE BOOT OF A PREMIER...YOU CANT GO WRONG. GO CHECK IT OUT.
