Right foot smaller than Left

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My Right foot measures 26.0cm and my Left measures 26.5. When getting fitted for boots should I use my left or right foot for shell fitting?

 

I'm wanting a performance fit, not recreation or race fit.

This is very common.  I would size for the smaller foot and grind for the room needed on the longer toe.  It is a very easy and common modification.

as Bud says go for the boot which fits the smaller foot and work on the pone for the larger foot.... when i read the title i was kind of expecting you to say there was 1.5 sizes or more between them.  0.5 size is very common and should be an easy fix for a good fitter

Hi Guys,

 

Thought as much. My last boots were sized on my larger foot and by my measurement my boots are one size larger than that, making them at least 1.5 sizes too big (minimum). Looks like I'm now another tragic story of buying boots that are too big based on the advice of a so called boot fit specialist. They even (supposedly) shell fitted my foot but did this on the larger foot. No wonder my linings have 'packed out'. (see previous post "Boot Liners have Packed Out" posted 15/03/10).

 

Back to the Ski shop to buy more boots. At least now I'm armed with some great advice from this forum and know what to do to make sure I get the correct boots.
