My current boots are a Head Dream 12.5. They are two seasons old now and my toes still have that scrunched feeling. The flex was an upgrade for me so the first season, the boots were very tight, even a little painful. Last season it was better.
However, my husband was trying on new boots and like the Atomics, for kicks I tried a pair on as well that even had a higher flex than my Heads. The fitter placed me in one size bigger and it made a huge difference. I am interested in the Atomic Hawk 100. My previous boot size was 23.5 but the Atomic is a 24.5. I do have a large calf.
I like to do the NASTAR racing and ski mid-atlantic region with a 1-2 time a year trip to Utah.
In the midatlantic I ski most everything, except for trees. In Utah, I will do blacks, as well.
Is it okay to go up in the boot size? How does the Atomic Hawk compare to the Head dream 12.5?
The Atomic boots were very comfortable, no pain.
