Most if not all 98mm boots are made up to size 30 Mondo. Knowing your Mondo measurement helps us more than knowing US sizing. If you are size 30 Mondo life is easy. Every company has something. If you are "A" width for narrow then life is harder, since 96mm boots typically stop at 28mm.
Thanks for setting me square on this. I'm a dork.
Anyway, on width you are correcct. I believe I am either an A or AA in width. . My dad was a AAA. The heel lift problem plagues me everywhere. I have a 20+ year old pair of custom made all leathr huking boots made by a guy in Oneida, NY, back when they were affordable, and havr cared dearly for them because my narrow heel is hard as heck to hold down and I can't afford what the thing now cost.
i just grabed the old lime green-yellow Fischer MX-Pros and they are 29.5 Mondo. These boots were perfect in every respect but one: every season I would end up with a destroyed large toe nail on each foot - they were a wee bit short in the toe box They are still in the process of growing back out after last year's beating due to their being showed a bit too much in the toe box.
I took the boots to that pretty amazing boot fitter in Vancouver, BC, and they couldn't get the plastic shell to not snap back into it;'s orginal shape when they cooled ( too much memory). So,I kind traded wrecking my toes for six years for the joy of having a tight boot that kept my heel on the heel plate.
So, this is what I'm trying to replace, yes, sorry for the mix up, but I really appreciate you taking the time to ask me to get it straight. ''
