I was curious reading some of the shell sizing questions so I traced and measured my foot in a thin dress sock.
Foot measured length - 273 mm
width- 85 mm
Curently in a 27 Head Raptor boot . When I pull the liner out and stick a small diameter dowl behind my heel with my toes in the front of the boot I have what I would descibe as no more than a finger's width behind the heel . The dowel measured width is approx 1/4 in.
I still think I could get a 26 shell (303 mm?) to work with some stretches and punches. My concern is I have the "pump bumps" on my heels and I had a lot of grinding done in a previous boot (Atomic CS 26 Shell) and I still had a lot of rubbing in that area.
Last thing, I think as narrow as my foot is I could also benefit from a 95 last on width versus the 98 I currentlu am in.
Thanks for your inputs.
