According to my shop, I have an unusually long sole length (as measure from the back of the foot to my slight bunion at the base of my big toe). If I am sized based on shell fit, I would wear a 26.5, but if I am sized based on the sole length, I would go with 28. My boot fitter (a certified bootfitter) suggested a boot sized according to the sole length because he say my very wide foot is basically like a big foot with short toes, and the bigger boot would better fit around the midfoot/ankle. I worry, however, that this would leave me with a lot of room in the shell, and I don't want to float around. In the past, I have gotten smaller boots and required extensive shell stretching and modifications for comfort. Any suggestions/comments from the boot guys? Thanks.
Do you still shell fit a foot with a very long sole length

I think what you are saying is you have short toes.
If you have a 26.5 length foot and you buy a 28.5 boot you will be swimming in it. Get the 26.5 and have them or a better shop make room for your first met heads.
