So, last year i demo-ed at ski shop in Mammoth the 2015 boots Dalbello, KR 2 Chakra ID, in mondo 23.5.
They felt great for the first 4 hours of skiing, but at the end of the day i did feel i would like something just a tad bigger, based on some minor numbness.
I went home and purchased online (big mistake) the 2014 version of the Dalbello KR 2 Chakra in mondo 24. They were way too big! Not wanting to give up, I tried to fit them with inserts, thicker socks, buckled them tighter, etc, and took them to the slopes, and nope, waaaay to loose. Can't return them now, since worn, but oh, well..
So, now i decided to just go and buy the same boots that i demo-ed. I figured i can't go wrong. So i ordered 2015 Dalbello, KR 2 Chakra ID from REI in the very same size as i demo-ed : mondo 23.5. I got them, and tried them on at home and my feet are going numb within 10 min of wearing them in the house. I don't understand, they feel way too small. How can this be, the same exact boot, with the same exact socks, verified that the size is marked correctly... Very confused on what to do...Any thoughts?
