I have a pair of 26.5 Tecnica Explosion X (the model that preceded the Icon) that have about 25 days on them. I bought them thinking they would pack out enough for me, but they didn't. They've packed out to a 27.0, but I needed a 27.5. If you've got a Tecnica foot, I'd be happy part with them for $75<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
gonzo, that is an excellent offer, and I hugely appreciate it. I am going to get my butt down to the shop within a couple days, I hope, maybe several. Before I do, though - are these adult racing boots? Because if they are, I doubt I can manage them. Too stiff. If they do have enough flex for my needs, I will happily go right ahead and find out how I feel in Technicas. I'll try to try on that particular model, just to be sure. I'll double-check my boot size too.
Of course, I will have to ask that if all the above criteria are met and I pay $75 for your boots that I will be able to ask for a refund if the boots turn out to not work for me? After all, I will not have been able to try before buying. In any case, we can talk more about things like that in the future, assuming that I find I like the fit of that particular Technica boot.
