Mine are 250mm and I take a 24.5

Even though the vacuum system can expand up to 10mm successfully width wise it is somewhat less versatile on the instep and ankle area. These areas need to be properly assessed to be able to absolutely answer your question. The boot board in the few vacuum versions available can also be a factor. I suggest you contact a ski shop that actually has the system and has experience with it to insure that you really get the proper fit. This is a new system and everyone is still learning....even the manufacturer!

The only boots in the Fischer Vacuum line that are available in a 24.5 are the Vacuum RC4 Pro in either the 130 or the 150 flex. That is unless you want the 110 flex in the ladies line. Don't forget that the sizing on the box is only what the manufacturers have decided it should read. Just shell fit the boot to make sure it's right. I was in a 24.5 Technica with a fingers width of space, now I'm in the Vacuum 130 (white shell) in a 25.5 with the same amount of room. Go figure.

Find a good bootfitter and let them help you out.

Check out the link for the US dealers. You might have to start calling around as it's only a shop listing. Here you go: http://www.fischersports.com/us/Alpine/FISCHER-USA/ALPINE/ALPINE-DEALERS

I've been searching for Fischer USA's contact info, but I haven't found anything. If you can find their number it might be worth a call.

You could alway take a drive down here to CT and see my boot guys.

The closest shop might be Hunter Mountain, N. Y.. 800-486-8376

Yes it is.  I'm in Rochester and VJR (the company that owns the shops in Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse) doesn't carry the Vacuums.  Hunter is the closest, but it's quite far away.

Cannonsburg MI is the closest to Toronto. Hunter is also within striking distant. Startinggate in VT was down to a few pairs by Columbus weekend - Definitely no more 24 in Pro 130. My son got his there. Suburban in Berlin, CT still had a large selection (not to metion great prices) on the same weekend. I got mine there. However, much time have pasted since then, so hurry.
