Ive Been Wearing the Wrong boots........

so yesterday i stopped by the local shop just to check out boots. ive always just skimp'd out on boots, (usually using some cheap burtons), but that wasnt the problem. i have been wearing a size 10.5 for the past 5 years and yesterday i realized i was really a size 9!!!! i got myself a set of 09 Thirty two lashed boots (white/black) for a great deal. Holy Sh*tt, these boots are light as hell couldnt be happier with my purchase. i readjusted my bindings and i everything seems to fit right now, its like a night and day difference. im totally pumped to ride now. woohoo!!

This is me reaching through the interwebz and smacking some sense into you.

Your toes should barely touch the tip of the liner when you're standing, that's a big sign the boots are the right size for you. A LOT of boot problems happen because people are wearing a bigger size than they need.

Good for you on supporting your local shop, that's just as important as getting the right boot.

I was in the same position as you were. Was riding with a size 10 DC since 06 and decided to go try some boots on at the local dealer. I ended up leaving with a size 8.5 32 Lashed.

Great news. Comfy boots change the whole experience.

I think my boots are too big also. It sucks.

When your boots where too big did it ever feel like the arch of your good is [KILLING!] you?

Thats the problem i have and i recently ordered custom orthotics and im really hoping the problem wasnt just the boots too big but im prolly gonna need knew boots now too which brings my pace tag up too about 600 dollars i hope its not a waste

and im sure the custom foot beds arent going to be a waste ifresh, and they should help with whatever boot you wear

Custom footbeds are never a waste of money. I have a set specifically for boarding. Best use of boarding money without a doubt.

Get a shit-stick board or spend $1500 on a Burton vapor - it makes no difference if your foot's killing you and you can't board for very long at a time.

The footbeds will last a typical rider upwards of 5-10 seasons.

All this talk about having boots too big is a dream to me. I wear a size 14 boot, and most companies dont make higher end boots in a 14. And yes the toe drag sucks.
