Boot Sizing -- Does Anyone Really Follow the Sizing Charts?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I'm still on the hunt for replacements for my old ski boots, and I keep seeing charts that tell me my 27.5 boots are meant for someone who wears a size 9 US shoe...But I'm a size 11 US shoe. 

 

Am I a freak, and I just don't like getting into big boots? 


Or is this normal, and everyone who has a 11 shoe buys a 27.5-ish ski boot?

 

I still use my old Superfeet Kork footbeds, the continue to offer terrific support, and they keep my feet stable and avoid extra elongation in the boot.

 

Unless someone has some interesting POV on why I need to go up a shell size, I'll keep looking at 27.5's. I like the snug fit, the toes don't bang and when the liner packs out, I'm pretty good for a while. I'd imagine if I went up a size, I'd be swimming in the boots after 10 days or so.

 

Thanks for your opinions.

 

Best,

Dave

sounds fine to me.   the charts are for a very recreational fitting boot at best.

moma told us, our toes shouldn't touch---the charts would agree with that --- irony.gif.

not certain what Mike is trying to say but I'm between a 10 1/2 and 11 and wear a 27.  I also measure a 27 as would anyone else.

Understand, my point is more that the sizing conversion is wrong between U.S. and Mondo and I notice that none of us recommend a size 27 to someone that is a 9 1/2
