Large calves, where to buy late in season?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My situation is this, I'm 330 lbs and that takes some muscle to keep upright and propel around. I measured length 28 width c-d. I want an intermediate boot. I can't close the two upper clasps on size 29. I can't close the upper clasp on size 30 boots. 

 

Spent time at local stores today - Live in the Seattle area - Sturtevants did a fantastic job fitting and adjusting my GF's boots. Didn't have anything available to even start a custom fit for me. Stock in other stores was extremely limited too. I don't want to wait until fall if I can avoid it.

 

REI tells me they are recalling all store inventory on the 13th and selling it off online. What are good candidates for a very large calf volume?

 

List they gave me:

Technica Phoenix Firebird

Dalbello Voodoo

Nordica Hot Rod 85

Rossingol Synergy

 

Thanks

buy them all,   take them all to Sturtevants, and ask them. 

 

return all, but the one that fits you best.

 

also, odds are you need a 28, not a 29 or 30.   Yes they might be a bit wider top opening, but  they are taller, so more of your calf (bull?) is in the boot.

 

also, use thin socks. and maybe 5-10mm heel lift too (again to get less of your calf in the boot)

 

buckles can be removed, and moved over to get more volume out of the boot too.

 

 

technica is my guess.

Head AdaptEdge 90 did the trick!
