Boot Size online

Hey ppl!
Im new in snowboarding, this winter i wanna start it and get my complete set with board binding and boot...unfortunately there are not good shops in my area so i have to order online...i decided to get a burton clash 164 wide with burton freestyle binding...the thing is i also have to order my boots online and this is my problem...what size should i get...my size is 45 but i heard that i should get a number bigger so 46...on the otherside the reviews on youtube and other forums say that the boot should be snug, so yeah its difficult to get the right size without trying it on...im thinking about burton INVADER softboots ... sizes are available i just dont know which size to pick.
If anyone could help me i`d be grateful!
thanks and sorry for the long message lol

You said no "good" shops? If there are shops at least, I'd go try on the boot. You don't want to guess on a boot and even if you had to drive an hour, go get fitted.. You'll be glad you did in the end.

With "no good" shops i meant "shops" with 2-3 pairs of boots and 6 used snowboards which in my opinion shouldnt be called a snowboard shop. The point is i`ve checked in my city in the area, other cities as well and they just dont have numbers for me...

In your situation, hopefully your online retailers will have a generous return policy, the chances of the first boot you order fitting great are slim. Hopefully you get lucky, but if not, note the issues, and check back. Sizing is really going to depend on your foot shape and how compatible it is with the boot. I sized my Salomon's same as my shoe size, my K2's are a half size (american) down.
