I was hoping that one of the experts might give me a heads up with a new boot selection, sadly we have no boot fitters where I live; that needs a plane or boat trip!
Standing up my feet in cms are:
Length 26.5 26.6
Width 10.2 10.3
Instep 6.5 7.0
Calf 3.6 3.6
Height 5 11 Weight 160lbs
I have been skiing for many years in a pair of Dynafit Competition 3Fs, which are now just about at the end of their days. I guess I am on the Advanced side of Intermediate, did some racing when I was younger but now getting on and just enjoy the snow and the new shaped and rockered skis, my boards used to be 205 Atomics - those were the days!
Am I right in thinking a 26/26.5 mondo boot will be the correct length for me, or does the length vary between brands even though the boxes will say a 26 or 26.5? I believe that most brands these days have the same shell size for a 26 and 26.5.
I know that boot volume will vary between brands and given my dimensions above anyone got any advice on what might prove to be a suitable brand to consider, given that the width of my feet seems to rule out a 100mm width boot, or again is that an incorrect assumption!
I was thinking about the Atomic Hawx range and the Dalbello Axion or Pro range for the shell, and then get a custom footbed with maybe a ZipFit or Intuition liner if they work better; I know one step at a time, and that the shell size and check is all important.
Thanks for any thoughts guys, and apologies for the barrage of questions.
