Size differences within boot manufacturer?
I have a question. I've got a sick deal lined up for some '09 DC Judge boots, size 9, that fit really, really well. However, before I 100% commit to this, I want to try some 8.5 size. Problem is, no one within 200 miles of me has them in a 8.5. Would trying a different DC boot in 8.5 give me a good idea of how the Judge in an 8.5 will fit?
The 9 fits perfectly. I mean, it couldn't get better. That's my concern though. I don't want it to break in and pack out and then not fit well anymore. I am wondering if an 8.5 might fit better after it has been worn a bit.
Also, while here, I was told by a sales rep at a local board shop that most good boots made don't really pack out anymore. She stated that, specifically referring to the Judge, that they have a gel that doesn't really get any larger, and that I shouldn't have to worry about the size changing. How true is this?
