[quote=Atomicman;582218]A28 & 28.5 is the exact same shell in almost all boots. Inside the the shell and outside boot sole length is identical on a 28 & 28.5.
This would only NOT be the case if the manufacturer changed shell size on the 1/2 size instead of fullsize which I beleive a couple do.
So you are absolutely wrong.
Sole length is identical on almost all 28/28.5. it is exactly the same boot in the same manufacturers lineup. The only difference is the thickness of the OEM insole!!!![/quoteYeah you're right if we were talking the same model.
BUT, a Salomon 28.0 does NOT have the same boot sole length as a 28.5 Technica or a 28.anything Dalbello. I don't know any manufacturer that changes shell size on the half size.I said the boot sole length of the "same size boots vary with manufacturer, and even vary by model of the same manufacturer." I've seen a 28.0 size boot vary as much as 15mm in boot sole length compared to a 28.0 in another brand.

the original poster never said the 28 and 28.5 were the same model boot.
as long as we talk my apples, and not your oranges, where am I wrong?
