I live in the Denver area and have been looking for replacement boots. My current boots are almost 20 years old. Technicas (can't remember what model, but they are advanced boots) that were about a size 12. Since I've owned the boots, my feet have grown at least two sizes even though I'm nearing age 50. I can still wear the Technicas, but I have to wear them barefoot with no socks. I have to say they are the best boots I've ever owned -- always warm regardless of temperatures and not wearing socks, and I can wear them as many as 5 days in a row without pain. But all things eventually must come to an end. I really need new and larger boots, and I'd prefer an advanced to expert boot (plus, it would be nice to find a pair that you can adjust the flex).
My problem is that no ski shop carries anything larger than a 30 mondopoint size. I am guessing I need to look for sizes between 31.5 and 32.5 to make sure I get the right size (I wear size 14 street shoes, and size 15 running shoes, since I need a little extra room for the toes when running). Any suggestions on where and how to look for a boot? Everyone says you need to be sized in person, but I'm kind of SOL in this region (went to Christie Sports and Boulder Ski Deals so far).
