Are hard snowboard boots or soft snowboard boots better?

Hard Times

Hard snowboard boots are better than soft snowboard boots for carving at higher speeds because they provide more support. The hard shell on hard snowboard boots provides greater leverage, power, and precision to edging movements.

These boots are best for those who like to carve or race. Hard plastic boots are hardly ever used with freestyle boards because the stiff boot cuff doesn't allow enough range of ankle movement for acrobatic tricks.
