boot sizing

I want to sell the other halves ski boots on ebay, (the boots are way to big for her), what I would like to know, is how do I know the real size of her boots - I am a bit confused as to the mondo scale, the boots themselves measure 30.5 cm (12 inches) from the toe to the hill, as measured from underneath. Is the 30.5 the mondo scale?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Clint:
The size should be stamped on the bottom of the boot. 30.5 is large even for a man's boot.
Also, you won't know exactly what the size is because the shell size only changes every full size. Half sizes are formed by a thicker footbed.
I would expect a number between 22 and 25.
Mondo is based on rough foot length measurements and not the actual boot length. Look for a molded number or sticker inside or outside of the shell and on the liner. 305mm is usually around a 26.
305 = 26ish = mens 8-9 = ladies 10+
You should find the mondo point size stamped or stickered on the tongue or on the back of the liner. There might be a mondo point stamp on the inside of the shell, but the actual size can vary by 0.5 depending on the liner. Boot sole length is not an accurate measure of size.

That's all you need to know. Advertise them by mondo point size (that's what people will be looking for) but if you want to add the equivalent shoe size as well, it's easy to convert the mono point to U.S. shoe size.

Once you find the mondo point size, you can convert to U.S. shoe size by adding the first two digits, then adding the decimal digit for men's boots and adding an additional 0.5 for womens sizes.

Example: Mondo Point 27.5 = mens size 9.5 shoe size (2+7+0.5)
Mondo Point 27.5 = womens size 10 shoe size (2+7+0.5+0.5)

Also, ski boots should typically be sized one to two sizes smaller than street shoes. For example, my shoe size is 10.5 but my appropriate size in the brand of ski boots I use is 26.5 (8.5 shoe size). If you bought ski boots for your wife that matched her shoe size, they would definitely be waaay too big for her.
