I'm glad the boots work for you. I'd be really careful about using your USA foot size.
This season and last I've been playing around with the Fischer boots. I found that he MX series runs fairly wide at the mid-foot. I also went two shoe sizes down to get a 1 finger fit.
This season, I switched to the RC4 Race which uses the same shell as the X-Fire, I think. This boot is a little narrower with a thinner liner that doesn't pack out as much as the MX liner does. Again, two sizes down for a 1 finger fit.
SOMA is a concept that works but unless you get lucky, I think most would be better off trying them on before they buy. Until I tried the Fischer boots I was skiing the Flexon, blown out at the mid-foot and with the instep raised-basically adjusted for a medium all around type foot.
