I will take overkill for 200, Trebeck.
Nothing succeeds like excess
Let me explain why I asked. Look back at the last 5 or 6 threads where we have done this. In most
of those threads, the reported shoe size ie "My shoe size is 8.5" has ended up being off (always reported over) by between 1/2 and 1 and 1/2 shoe sizes. This is VERY common. Why? Because shoe and boot manufacturers do not accurately stick to actual foot meaurements, and this has become worse over the last few years. But, your board does not care what size is printed on your brand new boots, it only responds to actual foot size.
The Goliath 153 is 24.5 at the waist, but is 25.6 at the center inserts. An 8.5 foot is 26.5 cm. That leaves the OP less than .9 of a cm before he is inside the confines of the board's edges IF
he rides at 0 degree angles. If he rides at heavy angles, he may already be inside the edges which would mean a poor fit. If his shoe size is less than size 8.5 (which is not unlikely) then that will be a problem.
Brother asked a question, so let's give him a thorough, definitive answer.
