Hey Trey,

The proper course of action when you are confused is to ask questions, not accuse people of lying. The actual length of boots varies quite a bit between companies (up to a full size). That's why your actual foot measurement matters. Simplifying it by saying your boot size is the same as a tight tennis shoe is where many people go wrong. It's a good place to start, but not the final straw by any means.

I haven't really decided yet, I only live 20 minutes from Chicopee (I know it's a craptastic hill in the grand scheme) but more cost effective for my learning I would think.
Stoked, and thanks for that extra info. 26 cm is actually a US size 8 shoe size. 26.5 is a US size 8.5. This is why we always ask this question. It is not a problem at all and it does not indicate for sure that your boots are the incorrect size. This is not uncommon.

Give me a bit. I am going to do a search and see if I have an appropriate board that I can hook you up with. More soon.

Hi Guelph,

I have a board that will be perfect for you. It is brand new but has a minor chip on the nose from shipping. I will be happy to send it to you (free of charge, of course). Please PM your email and shipping address.

Stoked!

How do you fit the halo under your helmet/beanie when you ride?
