joopsegalwhat ever fits your foot
NotThatNaturalLike im wondering if my feet will get really sore after a little while
NotThatNaturalHi newschoolers,my feet are 100 mm wide. I was wondering if 99 mm ski boot is too small for me?
tomPietrowskiWhat size are you. Full tilt are 99 mm in the 26 shell. So unless you are a 26 so really a 25 because of full tilts weird sizing
FredyFerlSki boots sizing are in cm, so a 26 in FT is the same as every other brand. I had a 27 in FT when I really am a 26, and they were in fact too big, because my toes were never touching the end of the boot and I had toe bangs all the time. I now wear 26s and everything is fine.
To OP, go to a bootfitter as everyone said. If your foot really is 100mm some FT will probably fit you, but I'd consider trying the boots the guy at the shop has to offer you
tomPietrowskiWhat size are you. Full tilt are 99 mm in the 26 shell. So unless you are a 26 so really a 25 because of full tilts weird sizing knowing the width of your foot does not really help. Also is that the width weighted or unweighted? This will make a difference too. If you 100mm when stood when you surport that foot with a footbed it may well go down as much as 5-10mm. Also for foot width is only one factor. We do a 5 point shell check and forefoot is only one of those a checks.dont
So as was said above just go get fitted up you will thank yourself when you don't have sore feet.
I was using a 26 this season but halfway through my toes were really sore and it turned out they were too small and so I got a 27
NegromancerIt's not just the last (width) of the boot that matters thing such as your instep, pronation and general shape of your foot all contribute to whether or not a boot will fit.
So while you may find the width of the boot the be fine other factors such as the overall volume of the boot may mean the boot will not fit.
For example the width of SPK 100 are perfect for me (104mm) but because the boot has a low instep and I have a high instep they don't fit me at all and hurt like hell because the top buckle puts a huge amount of pressure of my saddle bone.
JonssonBuy a boot that fits your foot and dont focus on the brand that much, ill promise you that it will improve your riding more than a Full tilt tha fits kinda bad on your foot
NotThatNaturalIve been riding full tilt for, 4 years and this year the ones I bought started giving me trouble
tomPietrowskidid you change size? Have your feet grown/collapsed? Are you using differnt footbeds? There are so many reasons you may be having problems that the only real wy to know what is wrong is to take them to a fitter an have the fit assese by someone who can see your foot in the shell.
p00npatrolAll I can say is go to a real (read:Professional) bootfitter like Larry's bootfitting in Boulder. it'll be more expensive initially but in the end will save you pain, agitation and time. A bootfitter is the only person that can pretty much instantly make you a better skier.
