pritty sure my boots are to big. how big is to big?
i live in aus and there arnt many snow gear shops, but i bought snowboard boots at the begining of the year, some company that travels around the country saling cheap gear, anyways i tried the boots on and they seemed to fit fine and the salesman, was sure they were aswell.
there a jap size 28, which only till now i realized is a 10us, and according to my foot measurment should b an 8. when i tryed on the boots i never realized how far back my heel needed to be, and after slaming it into the boot i have a good cm at least from my toes to the front.
im just wondering should i just go get some new boots straight up or try with these? im going to whistler in two weeks, but am guna b in vancouver for 5days beforehand, and dont know if i should try these out and if theyre no good, buy new boots in whistler $$$$ or just buy new ones before i try these, in vancouver,?
im guna b there for the season and am a novice
any help would b awsome aye
no idea about these things
If your gonna be there for the season then there is no shame in forking out a few bucks to be comfortable for the season. 5 months is a long time to spend in cheap boots that hurt your feet and wont support you (this is assuming they are some cheapo brand)
I'd be keen to have a good look through Van and see if you can try a few more on and get some good advice rather than that of a travelling salesman....
In saying that whistler is gonna be epic this year. i can feel it. i hope.....
couver ain't much cheaper than whistler from my experience. and there is a better use of your tourist time than trawling around shops in a big city IMO.
but your boots are defo too big; i am mondo size 28 and if you are meant to be a seppo 8... i reckon you should rent some once you get to the hill rather than fork out big bucks.
and next time, don't buy junk from the back of a lorry! :D
oops.... i thought i read you were going to whist FOR 2 weeks, not IN 2 weeks.
a sesason might be a pricey rental period! :rolleyes:
mind you, i also read your first post as starting: 'i live in anus'....:laugh:
quitting caffeine is a bitch for my attentive skills!
yeah, i do get a bit of heal lift when strapped in, ill prob just try flog these off, and grab some more over there.
wasnt quite of the back of a lorry, they set up in a hotel function room, ha, meh i didnt pay to much and guess its a lesson learned.
the only thing im worried about is when i get smaller boots my large flows may b 2 small.
Then flog them off as well :) I'm sure it wont be hard to off-load gear to staff up the mountain. We'll all be lookin for cheap gear.
life sucks for some!:laugh::laugh::laugh:
i am heartened by the fact that no matter how bad life seems to get, there is always someone out there worse off!:D
