(One of the most common and popular skis for teaching at the local mountain is 98mm underfoot. A friend taught her off piste clinic on the women's version of the Shogun last week. ) I doubt his ski was even reviewed by SKI magazine, nor was it hyped.... it's a design that's been around for about three seasons now. I also provided him a link for the Taos ski week program which is a bargain by anyone's standards. There's a ton of basic boot fitting information available to anyone with an internet connection that can type 'google.com' and 'ski boot fitting'. We know nothing about where and how he went about buying his boots. A big box store with 'sale' bargin tables? Could be. The last cool looking pair of boots that were 'only' a size too big? The buyer has many resources available to them with only a modest amount of energy expended. Obviously, Ryan didn't really know what he didn't know and that deferred learning curve is coming back to haunt him a bit. In the end, he's got his big boy pants on and will sort it out for himself and maybe even ask for a good shop/boot fitter in his area. At least his most recent shop let him know his boots were 2 sizes too big, so I'd say they've gone their job pretty well.
