Honestly, I find your description confusing. If I understand you correctly, I see this misdiagnosed fairly often. IMO, the toe lift is rarely the best fix for this.

AFTER SPENDING 2 HOURS ON THIS THREAD, I JUST REALIZED THIS IS LAST YEAR'S THREAD. I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS, EVEN IF IT IS MOSTLY MY FAULT.

PEOPLE, LET THIS THREAD DIE!

Hi Jeff,

Posted a question I hoped you could help with yesterday. Coming to Copper Mountain in early Feb Next year.
If the boots I bought play me up I'll sling them, pop over to Breckonridge and buy boots from you.
But, If the boot questions are from an old thread it's certainly as relevant today as last year.
Reading your replies you have knowledge we don't, and I'm sure all respect.
What questions can we ask you if not on boots? ( not that I have any other questions)

All the best,

Mercmac

Rossignol Boot Question

Hello Jeff,

I have a question regarding Rossignol Bandit B1 Boots...

Background: Intermediate skier looking to go to advanced. Live in Cgy, AB. 5'-10", 185lbs. Skis I just bought are B2's (166cm). I also just bought a pair of 27.0 Rossi Bandit B1 Boots and am looking to go skiing tomorrow. I bought the boots at a reputable ski shop and have foot beds (not custom though). I tried on a ton of boots and the rossi's were the only things that didn't put excess pressure on the soft tissue of my ankle when I flexed forward. Problem is, they didn't have any 27.5's for me to try on so I went ahead and bought the 27.0s. I have been wearing them around the house and they are bit tight I think around the forefoot as I seem to get some tingling in that area (mostly just my right foot). I measured my feet and from heel to toe I measure 27.15 cm (left foot) and 26.83cm (right foot). I have a high arch and high instep as well (the footbeds made a big positive difference in thsi regard). By the way, I normally wear a US9.5-10.0 size shoe (mostly 10 though as 9.5's tend to be a little tight on me). I should also add that I am just getting back into skiing as my old Rachlies made skiing so unpleasurable that I decided to quit for a while. So, I am definitely looking for comfort as priority #1. Questions below...

1. Since I want to go skiing tomorrow but can't return the boots after they're used, should I consider looking around for a 27.5 boot?
2. Do the conditions I described seem to indicate that 27.0 or 27.5 is the correct size?
3. What is the difference in shell size between a Rossi 27.0 and 27.5... is it mostly in the length or in the overall volume?
4. Is the tingling I am experincing normal and is it likely to go away after the liner packs out?

Thanks in advance if you can help me out! Cheers, JC

I'm going to lock it for that reason.
