You are Great Inspector ! Thanks . 23.5 cm it is length of my unweighted foot , weighted extends to 24.5 cm . I ordered between but I definitly like tighter fit .
So my advice for Icon Alu HF buyers : DOWNSIZE if you want tight firmer fit .
Thank you, but we really are talking about two different things. I'm talking about the length of the boot's sole as it interfaces with your bindings. I believe you, on the other hand, are talking about measuring from the posterior edge of your calcaneus (the tarsal bone, that in humans is the great bone of the heel) to the tips of your piggies
Maybe you mentioned it above, but I have to add; if your weighted foot grows a full centimeter when compared to its unweighted length, you had better
be using a high-quality, custom-made footbed. Purely my opinion, but you should:
- Not leave home without a good footbed</font>
- Have this footbed in-hand prior to purchasing your new boots</font>
- Not make the mistake of skipping either point above</font>
