go to sporthaus. talk to bart0. he runs the place and he's in charge of winter sporting for the most part. he could most likely order a few sizes of different models so you can try them on. he's done that to me for different boots in the past, and he's a really nice guy. I'm looking at getting full tilts, too, so i'm going to try to talk him into it, too. All he does is buy 5-6 pairs for you to try on, and then once you've got what you want, he sends 'em back. cake!
