Yeah, I hear you guys on boot troubles... I'm in the midst of trying to get a 98mm "plug-a-bee" to fit my gigantic feet... however I will say that the fit issue are not in ankle/leg but rather in the forefoot area. But still I want to make things the best they can be so I am going to get one of the 3/4th options.
It's gonna be trouble I'm sure, because I'm 5'7" and probably truly should be in a 29 inseam, however I take leg training very seriously and have quite monstrous thighs (at least compared to other individuals my height). Therefore I hope the 3/4 length in an appropriate "size" will stay above my boot cuff (which is already riding up into my calf muscles b/c my legs are shorter than the legs of an average male the boots were designed to fit). As a last resort, I will consider cutting the thermals down or taking them to a tailor to properly take them down.
It's a little off my topic, but a guy in a Winter Park bootfitting store told me that even the "PhD" ski socks are too thick? WTF? I thought those were already thin. Jeez, are we supposed to be wearing micro fabric on our feet?
