Salomon x max sizing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I live a great distance from any boot fitter but have a ski shop near me whose owner seems to know his merchandise well. I was debating a couple of different boots, but have recently been spending some time in the shop in Salomon X Max 100's. they seem to hold me in a good position and have an appropriate flex for me. My feet measure almost 29 on left and just about 28 (standing) on right. Forefoot is approx 101-102. High arches with average ankle mobility. Was previously wearing 28.5 boots, but am looking for more performance oriented fit. Smaller foot in shell has one finger -possibly a bit more - I'm guessing 13-14mm based on a 15 mm dowel being snug behind the heel.
A friend who got a similar boot (120 flex) said that prior to molding the boot felt too small, but after molding almost felt too big. When I stand up straight, the 27.5 is very tight in width and height, but my toes are JUST touching the front. The heel and throat feel very tight, but I like the tightness due to my older boots being too loose in these areas.

Does it sound to you guys like the 27.5 will be a good length for me or should I hold out and try a 26.5 (they do not have this boot in that size but I tried an X Pro in 26.5 and it was very tight in length but everywhere else felt like it might be to big).
Thanks for any advice

27 sounds like the correct choice. 26, i don't think so.

 

are you using a custom or trim to fit footbed?

Hi Jim
I am using a custom (Instaprint) footbed.
Thanks,
Jeff
