I tried on some FTs at the end of last season in either a 27 or 27.5 and they were awesome, but I can't remember which of those two sizes I tried. and the shop is 2+hrs away. I measured my foot to just under 10.4 inches. I would really not like to drive to the boot fitter again, so which size do you *EXPERIENCED* members think I should buy, based on my foot's length?
The shop I went to wasn't that formal. I asked them to show me some boots I could fit into, they passed me some Dalbellos and some FT's and I was like "oh these ones fit nicely" on the FTs and then I left because I had no money.
Material wise there is no difference between the 27 and 27.5 boots from FT. There is a slightly larger "metal foot" that is used to do the initial stretching and molding of the intuition liner, but once this liner is re-heatmolded to your foot you will be dealing with the same size of liner with the same amount of material in either.
