Nordica Olympia Speedmachine 12 width?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

I'm ready to buy new boots; however, every shop recommends different boots, lasts and sizes (depending on what they have available at this time). Does anybody know what is the exact last width of Nordica Olympia SM12 (on their website it is listed as: Medium). My foot width is 85mm (at the widest point) and I was wondering if this Nordica boot might be too wide?

I realize that you can't recommend any specific boots online, but would appreciate any input you might have.

Thanks

the last on the speed machine is 100mm in a size 26.5

 

best advice is to find a boot fitter rather than a boot seller, at 85mm that is a very narrow foot

Actually, two of the guys I talked to called themselves the boot fitters, but they were also selling boots...

I guess, I just need to make an appointment with a GOOD boot fitter.

I measure 24 on the mondoboard and boot sizes of 23.5 seem to fit me well lengthwise (I think).

85mm wide, on a 23/24 length is narrow

 

check the shell fit to start (the fitters should be doing this,  if not walk away, actually RUN)

5-15 mm in lenght

 

0-2mm in width.

 

get a tight heel pocket, and the store will make the rest bigger as needed.

 

look at the recomended boot fitters list on this site for some good options in your area?

85mm wide in a 23 mondo is closest to a 95mm lasted boot. ie WC Plug Shells.

So, do you think that 98mm last would be too wide for me? I want/need a high performance boot with a flex of about 100 and more comfortable than a racing boot.

what you need is...

 

check the shell fit to start (the fitters should be doing this,  if not walk away, actually RUN)

5-15 mm in lenght

 

0-2mm in width.
