How much foot size measured with brands (atomic, salomon, rossignol, etc) measuring stick correspond to the proper size of the boot?
Because shell fit depends on foot length, right? Even bad fitted boot could have the right size. There should be connection foot lenght - boot size.
Dear bootfitters, you probably start with that measuring device, then do shell fit... you should have general experience on how much proper boot size differs from measured on the same brand stick.
It's sometimes difficult to measure shell fit, cause there is not enough space in calf area to put hand behind my heel and precisely measure shell fit. When I'm drunk it is 5mm, when I'm clear and lean forward it is about 30mm. :) J
From your experience what can you say if I measured 26.0 with Salomon stick, 26.5 with Atomic stick, 26.3mm at home measured by myself, what size Salomon Falcon (X3) boots do I need?
Why Boot companies produce sticks that show different values for the same foot? Ok boot models differs and comfort models could have 20-30mm shell fit. But there should be some guideline from manufactures: if you want really racing X3 model you need "size measured minus 0.5" if you want comfort Mission model you need "size measured plus 0.5".
Sorry, I don't know any bootfiter in my area, all I have is Epicski.com.
