I just bought a pair of Dalbello Scorpion 105 boots in 24.5. My regular shoe size is a women's US 9, and these say that the 24.5 is an equivalent of a woman's US 7. When I tried them on in store, they fit well, but the ones I tried on were worn previously and presumably packed out a bit. The ones I took home were brand new and in the same size, but when I put them on they feel like they are way too small. My toes are bent when standing up right, and are fairly squished when I flex forward. I took out the liner to double check the shell size, and there is definitely at least .5" between my heel and the back. That should be the right size, correct? Or did I buy them too small? :/
I'm nervous about going skiing in them if my feet are too cramped... Any tips on how to stretch out the liners at home? They claim to be heat moldable, but I'm not sure what that means.
