My brother has a '12 or '13 Lange RX 130.
He and I have about the same size foot. He's a 9.5/10 US and I'm a good 10.5. I wear a Salomon XMax130 in a 27, and wondering now if I'm in too big a boot even though I had a boot fitter fit me. My brother thought I'd be a 26 and he thought his boot was a 26 in the Lange.
I know boot brands size differently, but when looking at his boot, I read the sole at 295mm, which to me would be a 25/25.5 rather than the 26. He said that this particular Lange shell was shorter than normal...and that's my question, do any of you boot guys know if this boot did infact have a shorter shell than usual, or is he in a 26 @ 295mm?
I'm asking because I just spent a bunch of coin on my new Salomon's and before I ski them, I want to be sure.
I used to ski a Salomon Falcon 10 in the 27/27.5 as well, but just wondering if I try to go smaller. When I tried the 26.5 in the Xmax, the tops of my toes (knuckles) hit, but now I'm just wondering if I should take a closer look at it and then have them grind that part of the boot out.
The bootfitter thought I may have enough room in the 26 when he measured me w/o the liner (shell only), but said it was close...and just said the 27 was probably better.
Again, a bunch of info here, but I just want to be sure. My brother being one size down in the Lange didn't concern me, but when I read his boot was a 295mm, I started thinking, "Wow, he may be two sizes down from my Salomon which is 27.5 and 315mm in length.
Hope that made some sense.
