mondo point size is the physical length of the foot in centimeters,nothing more nothing less.... the boot manufacturer then adds a bit in their products for toe room and the thickness of the liner, it is the additions which make for the differences in boot sizes with some manufacturers adding loads of room and others adding less

hence thew reason that you may measure 29.5cm and ski in a 28.5 boot or smaller

Now that skiing in Jackson has shown you the conversion be careful. The conversion to U.S. is not correct and if you follow without a proper shell fit you'll almost certainly buy to large a boot.

For instance I measure a U.S. size 10.5 to 11 on the Brannock and measure 27 Mondo point. If you look at the chart you'll see 27 Mondo is 9 U.S. Don't go there.

Thanks for pointing this out. I posted it for reference only.

Understood. For those that are interested I stumbled on one that seems to be mostly correct through an online shoe store via ebay. But of course really doesn't matter as measured size is only the starting point anyway.

This is the chart that I use in my store. But I'll reiterate as will anyone else here that it is only a starting place.
