Hello Bears !!
So I got the new Atomic M-80 recently which is a nice boot.
I got it in two sizes, Mondo 26.0 and 27.0
I've read all the ski boot fitting guides I could get my hands on (inlcuding the one here) and am still not sure about the correct fit, mainly in terms of feet length nothing else.
The issues confusing me is that
1- The liner will pack out
2- The touching of toes
In both sizes, the toes touch the front when standing and then move back when flexing the boot, however in the 26.0 the toes are pressing REAL hard on the front of the boot, whereas in 27.0, they are lightly and comfortably brushing the front when standing
I am not sure which size should I go for, especially that both shell sizes I think fall within the recommended shell length (Fitting the empty shell, 10-20 mm behind heel)
Will the 26 pack out considerably ? Should I stick with 27 ? Or is it worth it to try a 26.5 even ?
Appreciate the advice, you know how critical a good fit is :)
