Iheard a rumor that the 09 il moro’s run a lil wider but I’m pretty sure that’s justa rumor. I ride 08's and i couldnt notice a difference in my buds 09s for what its worth
itcomes down to flex and comfort. Personally I prefer il moro's
The biggest differenceis in the cuff. The Il moro's cuff flex is noticeably smoother than the rampagecuff. On rampages it flexes great for a while and then it just stops abruptlywhen the buckles have been flexed out. You don't notice this until you've had arampage on one foot and an il moro on the other. I switched to the il moro cuffand I'm really glad I did. I love the smoother flex and its been easier on myshins. Downside is i felt the rampage cuff handled a little better all mt, however the difference in liner's made up for it.
Another difference isthe rampages come with a softer shell than the il moro’s Althoughthe shell of the il moro is stiffer, the flex of the boot feels similar torampages just a lot smoother because of the cuff. The cuff flexes freely which makes it feel alil softer than it really is. So rampages will be softer and il moros will be a tad stiffer but still on the softer side. dunno what flex you like.
il moros come with silveri.d liners. The i.d liners are 100% heat moldable and incredibly light. Theinside of the liner forms to a perfect custom fit around your foot while theoutside forms to fit every nook and cranny in the shell. Its unique to idliners there's no slop between your liner and shell so the shell, liner andyour foot act as one seemless response. Thesilver liner comes in a medium comfort density foam which has great responsebut is also very comfortable in the park, The rampages come with a truft liner.Comparatively its noticeably heavier than i.d's and a lil heavier than othertypical liners. Its not 100% heat moldable but it certainly is not a bad liner.They're pretty comfortable and have decent response. Only downside is they tendto pack out rather quickly so you may need to buy new liners around 50days.
Personally I feel theextra money spent on the il moro’s is well worth it. The liner responds better, is more comfortable, the boot flexes smoother, was easier on the shins and is noticeablylighter.
And size wise personally i'd buy the size that fits. The liner will pack out over time which may work to your advantage if your feet are still growing. Also if feet grow you can always try and remold the I.d liners. They have a little bit of lee way.
The liner will form to your foot, and don't double up on socks (bad idea), if anything get fitted with a thick sock, and once your foot grows a bit get thinner socks
