Hey Wiredsport much thanks for the help so far. Although I got that measurement, I comfortably wear a size 10.5 boot. 9 is tight and my toes get jammed up in the front pretty bad. Would the 156 goliath still be a good size?
Yes. The board will only respond to your foot measurement (26.76) which is unrelated to boot size. There is an enormous amount of variation in boot production sizing accuracy by brand, etc. That is why we have riders measure their actual bare feet. It is not uncommon for riders to report a boot size which is significantly above/below their measured foot size.
