1/2 sizes...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
There is another thread in Ski Gear Discussion asking about the difference between a Salomon 26.0 and a 26.5 in the same boot.

Is it:

a) different shell w/ same sole length
b) different zeppa
c) different liner
d) different stock foot bed

?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ?????????????

Inquiring minds NEED to KNOW. Help us O' Foot Fetishists... err, Boot Guys.

and the answer is "D"!!!

The footbed is thicker in the 26.0 than in the 26.5---the thicker footbed pushes the foot upward in the toe box reducing volume and making the boot feel shorter.

In Salomon's Case it's c) the liner. and D) the stock footbed.

and answer "E" is

doesn't matter as they all pack out to the same "fit" anyways.

I like mntlion's point. In my store I don't even bother to stock half sizes. I buy boots in 26, 27, etc because the half sizes really don't accomplish anything.
