I have been browsing the BST and gear talk lately and have seen so many people saying they wear sizes such as 26.5 and 27. I am either incredibly foolish to believe that an average bootsize is a 29-30 (11-12) or are people purposely wearing smaller boots. If so what are the advantages.
Also if you're still unsure on the way a boot should fit reply to that thread with your question, or inbox onenerdykid. He usually replies to that thread though. I'm pretty sure he's one of the lead dogs for boot design at Atomic, so he really knows his stuff.
