Mondo sizing mean the number is literally the length of the inside of the boot in centimeters. That is... a boot that is Mondo 26 is 26 cm long... so if you measure your foot and see that it is 25.5-26.0 cm you can be relatively sure the boot will fit you length-wise (it may be too wide or too tall still... but no manufacturer lists those dimensions).

There are plenty of snowboard-only companies that produce crappy products because they know stupid image-conscious people will buy that crap. Salomon has been making quality snowboard products for decades now.
