With all of the said, would the 161, 165, or 169 Barracuda suit my needs, or should I just concede to my yeti features and go wide?

Thanks again!
Hi Bro,

26.67 is actually a size 9. The board you are looking at is ~ 26 cm at the center inserts so you will be just fine with your 26.67 foot. That will allow most common stance angles. My advice, if it is a good deal, go for it.

Thanks!

Really? Do you also think that I should go with size 9 boots, or is the barefoot measurement just for the purpose of board selection?

It just seems counter-intuitive to my habits! Maybe I should go try on/purchase boots first?

Thanks! You guys are really saving me here!

Hi,

Only your foot measurement (not your boot size) will determine board width. Your foot is 26.67 and for the purpose of selecting board width that is all the info you need. You are a solid fit for this deck. Now...for boots, that is a different story. Boot sizing is all over the place and your "size" will be different with different manufacturers and in some instances even models within the same manufacturer.

Just curious as to how long you've been buying shoes/boots that are 5 sizes to big for you?

I kinda find this a weeeeeeeeeeee bit hard to believe
So no one has ever commented that your fuckin' huge water ski shoes look a tad big for your tiny feet?

I mean come on, just put the shoe/boot beside your foot on the ground, I'm thinkin' a retard could tell you, "that boot is way too big".

Have you been forgetting to take the paper out of the toes of shoes/boots?

Lol well, I assure you that it's the shoe size that I've been wearing for, literally, >10 years.

I measured again using a different wall, but I'm still only coming up with 10" +/- .5.

I talked to my friends and the only explanation I could receive was that perhaps I need wide shoes. It makes sense.

The shoes I have now, I never realized as being too big, because they fit. I can sprint in them, or punt as hard as possible and they won't budge. Conversely, smaller shoes are way too tight on me.... but I never thought to try wide shoes. If anything, you guys could potentially have saved me a trip to a pediatrist down the road! ....although maybe the damage has already been done?!

I'll go to a legitimate shoe store tomorrow and set things straight.

Ahhh yes, I've heard of this before.

A developmental disorder called Chode Foot.

Their performance exceeds their size, I can assure you

Lol if any of you think I'm trolling, and you live in the SLC area, I'll kick field goals with 5 different pairs of 13's for you.

I could probably kick field goals too, after I put my size 10 shoe inside your size 13 shoe

5 sizes though? That's like 1/3 bigger.

Take your 13's & put the sole of your shoe against the bottom of your foot.

It doesn't seem odd to you that there is 3-5 inches of extra shoe there?

Hate to break it to ya, but you should probably remeasure your 10 inch hammer
