Dalbello and Fischer last wide

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello
Does anyone know how wide is Dalbello Proton 12 last? How about Fischer X-thunder?
I don't found answers of these questions anywhere.

I need boot for fast ski, so flex should be >100.
My "food last" is wide. I rent Atomic B90 of one day and i think it's wide enaf.(last 104mm).

Thank you for Your answers

If you need a wider last, the Proton is a good option.

I have proton 12, but they are small to me. One reason is, that my foot leight is 27,8 and boot is 27,5. The marketman says that it's ok and it would be get longer in use. They are heated 2 times and skies about 10 hour. After 30 minute ski i have to take them of.

I also dry X-thunder. It was quote ok, but my toes get freeze after 1 hour.

Footbed? How is your foot supported?

If the Atomic seems to fit, maybe you should go with that.

What do you mean? I think that ankle support is quote hard and my ankle does not reach the bottom the way it should be.
There is one pair (28.0) left here in Finland. I just don't know is that too big risk to buy them, even if they are mutch better when I'l drying them in shop.

And for 'Lostboy': I spent over 2 months to reach out what kind of boots there is in market todays. Atomic B90 (and maybe also B100) is good boot to ski, but there is nothing special on these boots. Everything is basic.
Big minus comes from too wide achilles area in innerboot. Also the ski position was litlebit to streight. But still there was no problen when skiing.
But if i'm ready to spent 300-500euros to ski boots, I want to get much of features.

If your fot is not supported properly and your foot pronates it will expand and get wider. This is where you might just need less width than you would expect.

Inter-Tran doesn't have the Finnish for 'footbed', 'insole', or 'orthotic'

suomipoika, what Philpug is asking is:

do you have an insole or orthotic in the Proton right now?

Something like this:


- these are NOT supplied by the boot factory and they can make your foot appear shorter to the boot.

I have basic insole now. I'm been thought to buy orthopedic insole for these boots because basic insole does not lift center of foodbed enaf. Then it should shorter foot leight.

Now I'l go to shop to test 5mm longer boot.

OK - the orthotic insole might be a good idea before you buy anything.

If you don't have one, then you are buying the boot for the bigger foot size that only happens when you have all the weight on that foot.

The Fischer X-Thunder is not really for wide feet. I'ld say perfect for a very snug fit for a medium wide foot. The liner in the forefoot is very thin as the outer boot is probabely the lowest volume non semi-plug or plug boot available.

I have a pair of Fischer F8000's i would classify them as a boot suited to a low volume foot

Oddly enough, if the boot is too large your foot will slide forward and feel cramped. Most of us ski in boots shorter than foot length. If your foot length is 27.8 and the boot is 27.5 you may be in too large a boot, not too small a boot. Have you tried shell sizing the boot, that is, putting your foot in the boot without a liner and seeing how much room is avaialble bhind the heel when you slide your toes all the way forward. Look for about one cm of spare room behind your heel.
