Lange CRL 90 fit question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I pulled the trigger on a pair of Lange CRL 90's. I went with the 11.5 and am wondering if I made the right choice. They are definetley snug and I think if I wear a liner for awhile until they pack out I will be ok. My feet measure at a 12.5 and 13. I tried on the 12.5 and it felt good and snug but not uncomfortable at all. My reasoning for going with the 11.5 was the shell sizing. Lange uses the same shell for size 12-14 boots. I tried on the 11.5 which apparently is identical to the 11 (shell size 10-11) and was suprised I could even get my foot in it. Tried it without the liner and had ~1.5 fingers room, my toes were touching the front of the boot.

Just looking for some confirmation on getting the smaller size boot. I had a ton of room in the 12.5 without the liner in. (I guess cause they use the same shell for 12-14). The 11.5's are really snug but I think I can deal with it. Hopefully I wont be miserable next week for the first turns of the season

once it packs out in a few days you will be fine, right lenght


for others:
So you want to buy some new boots? This information applies to All double boots (boots with removable liners): downhill, telemark, alpine touring, snowboard, ice climbing, and any ability or age.

First of all the sizing information on the tags is not always accurate. Different brands fit differently and sometimes the sizing tags on the boot are gone. If it is right type of boot, in the right price range, and about the right size, try it on. The first step is to shell fit. With the liner removed, your foot in the shell only, and your toes touching the front of the boot, you should have NO MORE then 2 fingers, 2 cm or ¾ inch between your heel and the back of the boot. You also want about 1-3mm around the width of your foot. Yes they will feel a bit snug at first, but they will pack out, trust us.

Put the liner back in and lace or buckle the boot up and make sure that your heel is back all the way in the boot. Then when you flex the boot forward, your heel should stay down, your toes should come back from the front of the boot, and they should feel comfortably snug. Keep in mind that they will stretch out ¼ to ½ size as your foot works it way back in in the boot, and the liner packs out and molds to your foot.

If you go bigger then this your foot will slide around, and cause blisters, you will have to over tighten your boot to make the foot stay in place, cutting off the blood flow and making your feet colder. Boot fitters can make a small boot bigger, but can not make a big boot smaller.
