Quick question for you.
I was at the my local boot dealer this weekend and bought a pair of Tecnica Mach1 120 boots. When we were doing the fitting the largest size they had was 29.5. This seemed pretty small even though I was wearing a dress sock. With a ski sock I think it would have been way too tight. I could see my toe pushing the liner out. They also did the shell test but can't remember what they said.
They measured my feet on the mondo scale and the left foot came out to almost 30.5 and the left a little shorter but still over 30.0. In the end I ordered the 30.5 but i am worried its going to be a bit too big.
I am currently skiing in 30.5 Tecnica's from about 10 years ago and they have been perfect. My foot does not move around at all I took my boot and did the test with the wood dowel and it came out to 0.9" which I read is too much space in the FAQ. I read its supposed to be 0.5". I take it the new boots will also be 0.9" since its the same size (30.5).
I am so confused and worried. I had smaller boots before and my feet were so cold that I wanted to give up skiing. With my current Tecnica's I am really happy. They have been extremely warm and comfortable. I just don't want to make a mistake. What do you guys think. Should I have bought the 29.5s or did I do the right thing.
