To vacuum or not to vacuum. at least not at first

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have Soma Ranger 12s on order. (I tried them on, thought about it went back sold out) I already know how the fit and I think I could wear them out of the box without having any real issues. So then I got to thinking would it be better to pack out the liners a little and go back for the vacuum process? I really want to avoid molding the shells more than once. Is there any reason why that's not a good idea?

if it feels that good out the box you have to ask if it is too big?  not to say that it is, but if you have tried them on casually like that, not had a footbed done etc etc you have to ask the question

I'm pretty sure they're not too big I think they're 101mm last and I've gone down a size my old pairs were I think 102mm last 27.5 these ones are 26.5 but that might be a difference from brand to brand or how my foot fit in them. I've got a half size difference from left to right too. My previous pair were sized by a boot fitter footbeds and a few adjustment in them. Is there a way to measure your last other than feel?

I got word back that the backorder was until end of Dec. so I jumped ship to the Cochise Pro Light. I haven't cancelled the Ranger yet but I think it's likely, I contacted their support asking about the weight and didn't get any responce past the autoreply(on the Fischer). same thing wth Recon, i guess I'm just unlucky when it comes to getting support, i guess thats what I get for not picking up the phone.
