Does anyone know how Northwave tends to fit? Like if I took a 9 in Burton would I generally be a 9 in Northwave?

Northwave is more of like a show fit type boot. Burton uses shrink fit where the sole is actually shorter to reduce heel and toe drag. northwave is a wider fit type boot. If your a 10 you should get a 10.5 in this boot

I have a narrow foot, and used to have a hard time finding snowboard boots that fit me correctly and kept my heels locked in place. I would go the same size you wear in street shoes..... DON'T size up. I wear 10.5/11 in street shoes, and 11 in NW boots is too large. The 10.5 is perfect.

I agree with PowderKing, choose the same size you wear for street shoes/sneakers. I wear street size 8 and an 8.5 Northwave Freedom SL felt a little too big. A snug fit also meant the tightness is at the limit almost deforming the part where the laces puts pressure on. I replaced the Freedom SL with a size 8 Decade SL and it fits perfectly with enough wiggle room for my toes and the laces tightened normal.
