well if you liked the reliks but want to try something different then maybe start with the softer lower cut boots of other brands.
hyperlite AJ boot and system binding
liquid force shane or vantage closed toe, or the new closed toe ultra boot for 2013
cwb answer, or maybe prizm
or get some ronix parks boots (same as relics)
list is not conclusive or in any order
Best thing is to go to a shop and try some on if possible
