What is your boot size (mondo+BSL) relative to your street shoe (sneaker) size (US) currently? Indicate shell fit measurements if you know them. - Page 4

New Balance running shoe size 10 EEEE

Ski Boot is a Technical 10.2 - 100 in a 26.5 HVL with 306 BSL (New 2016 season)

The foot bed is OEM for now.

Boots fit well, my left foot is longer than the right but my right foot is wider than the left.

Toes of the lift foot still touch a bit but as the liner compresses more they will be fine.

As you can see from the photos above, my forefoot is probably shaped different then 90% of the population here. The euorpeans refer to them as "French Feet". Short toes, not very tapered inward, big toe is the longest, narrow heel low volume medium arch. I don't compromise on shoe fit, and do not have bunions, hammer toe or other mangled toe deformities. Minamalist running shoes designed for toe splay were a welcomed "gift " for me.
I always end up in a US 8 sneaker (currently, Nike Air Zoom Terra Kiger lll Trail-Running).

Cross Country Ski Boot BC-NNN Alpina Alaska size 40

I guess I have French feet. US 15 AA New Balance 990 running shoes based on arch length, but my feet measure 14-14.5 in length. Purchased new boots before this season. Lange RS 130 30.5 (BSL 346 mm) with Sidas Winter+ Slim insoles. Recently remeasured shell fit to be between 10 and 15 mm.

An interesting point is I can not think of a single ski boot manufacture that uses the Brannock device as their standard, for that matter I can not think of a shoe manufacture that uses it as a standard.  My running shoe is a New Balance 10 EEEE and their shoe that they make in the USA the 990 group seem very close to Brannon but the models made out side the USA seem shorter.  Some models I have to use the 10.5 EEEE. But other manufactures are using their own standard for what they call a size 10 or 11.  Some are close to the Brannock but not exact, so why does everyone think the Brannock is that important?  It was a sales tool used in shoe stores from the 1950's and 1960's not for ski boots.  A few years back some manufactures provided measuring devices for their own ski boots I think that is a better choice.  If you are trying on Nordica boots and you use their measuring device it is probably the best way to start.  I think all manufactures should have their own measuring device to show what standard they use for their product.

I could swear I've seen Brannock devices with mondo markings instead of the US standard.

Apparently mondo sized boots are no more standardized in length than US sized shoes.

That's why you should always do a shell fit for each boot first!
