What size boot should I get?
Yo guys. I'm gonna be buying new boots toward the end of the season/summer and I was wondering if I should get a 26 flat or a 25.5. I have a 26 mondo and a narrow foot so ft boots are my best bet. I'm also getting footbeds too, so should go down to a 25.5? +K for help
Since there are no half sizes in ski boots, the difference between a 25.5 and 26.0 is a full size. 25/25.5 share the same liner and shell, 26/26.5 share the same liner and shell. And if on the off chance that some company has made a slightly different liner, the difference will vanish as soon as you heat mold the liner and use your own footbeds.
Ultimately, your decision should be made based on the shell fit and how snug you are used to wearing your boots. Take the liner out of the shell, step into the bare shell with a thin ski sock on, slide your foot to the front so your toes just barely touch, and examine the space behind your heel. 1cm gap = high performance fit, 2cm = normal, 3cm = too big don't buy
