I'm due for a new pair of boots, but I'm not sure what to do.
I ride on a pair of 28.5 full tilts I fit myself 6 years ago. I had my fit evaluated a couple of times (getting footbeds and a remold). One fitter said it was perfect and another said he would've tried a size smaller. I don't have any foot pain if I can get the tightness dialed, but that's getting harder as the liners are totally packed out.
I also don't want to remount my skis, and with FKS I only have about ±5mm in BSL wiggle room.
For my next pair, it seems like I have .
1 - Get new full tilts, same size. Either the new 99mm shell if it fits me, or the older one if it doesn't. I won't be able to size down without a remount.
If I do this I'm worried I won't get the best fit I can have, and I'd like to get the 99mm shell if I can. Rubber sole and all that.
2 - Get refit with a different boot in 27.5. The BSLs of 90% of 27.5 boots are the same as the 28.5 full tilt boot. I don't have a list yet, but I can take one with me to the fitter.
If I do this, no more full tilts.
