3) wearing Technica icon x's the last 5? years size 10 1/2 (the orange tiger striped) street shoes are a size 12. icons fit reasonably well after a break in and a bit of forefoot punchout around "6th toe" area on both feet.
worked well for years , now finding that no matter how tight i cinch up power strap (on inside) the edge of liners now touch preventing furhther tightening
4) in your expert opinion can you reccommend a boot brand irrelevent
thank you for your time regards greg
probably to your area next feb. for annual trip
nice skis, man.
Many skiers have issues tightening Tecnica cuffs. You did not list your foot width, instep height etc..., so this is just a guess. Boots that are similar in fit and stance to your boots are the Tecnica Vento 10, and the Nordica Speedmachine 12. You may want to start your search here.
