27.5 or 28

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

When I measure my foot it is roughly 11 inches in length.


11 inches comes out to about 27.94 cm.


Would I be more suited for a 27.5 boot, or a 28?  How do you typically advise boot buyers when they have a foot size such as this?

You look at their foot to see what boot will fit their foot the best, along with a few other options, then have them try them on while gentle assuring them that "yes, I know your toe is touching the front of the boot that's what we want... yes, they should feel a little tighter than the flip-flops you were wearing when you walked in... no, before you take the boot off because it's "too small" let's try buckling it, OK...work with me here a little..."


Measuring the length of your foot is pretty meaningless in the fitting process. Honestly, you can take the size shoe you normally wear and subtract 1 size for a comfortable performance fit and 2 sizes for an aggressive performance fit. It's at least as accurate as measuring your foot with a ruler then posting on the internet.

As with all footware and clothing in general it is impossible to provide rules that treat every model and company identically.  The only way to determine if a boot fits properly is shell fit.
