You're welcome. That is your size, always look for Mondo if possible. 42 EU is correct on a conversion chart but only mondo can guarantee to be that accurate since some shoe companies (stupidly) measure a shoes dimensions to calulate the size they are going to call the shoe rather than the size of the foot that fits in it...poor logic, but now you know why there are so many problems with different brands being different sizes....

Golden rule...If you see Mondopoint. use it..its military precision.

You may still fancy trying half a size down some time since snowboard boots are very padded and some people find that when they pad out even the boot being the right size leaves it too loose once it has padded out. Especially true if you are a XX.5 size since most outer shells will only change size at every whole number so a 27 and a 27.5 will be the same size outer, just with a different amount of padding on the inner liners...saves on production

Unrelated(ish) some pro footballers (soccer) wear boots 1 or 2 sizes too small so that they are super tight to their feet to get the best feel for the ball. This is an observation and they do it only for 90 minutes at a time and only on match days else it can mess with your feet, but i think u get the point.

If you like a boot to be really snug fitting then maybe brave it and try the next size down, you never know until you try.
