And perhaps some heatfitting.. Im pretty skeptic cause without actually riding its hard for me to tell anything about boot.
Not perhaps Heat fit first. Right now you are dealing with an unformed liner.

Everything else looks good. Let your heat fitter know of any areas of sensitivity.

Hi All,

I just picked up snowboarding in niseko a few days back and quite enjoyed it and so am planning on purchasing my first pair of snowboard boots.

The rental lady in niseko measured my feet and and kinda hinted that the width of my feet are slightly wide. She suggested a pair of Rome stomp boots at US size 9.5 and thats what I used for 6 days.

I have attached some pictures of my feet and would appreciate some advice as to what size my feet are. From what I gather from this thread, I understand that for people with wider feet, there really are only 3 choices, burton ruler wide, salomon dialogue wide or salomon synapse wide?

Thanks.

Hi Felix,

Your Mondo size is 250 which converts to size 7 in snowboard boots. You are also between EE and EEE which narrows your boot selection even further. Only one boot is produced for widths above E. Burton Ruler Wide.

Trust this guy Felix. This whole boot thing really is a journey.

Yo Wired yesterday I didn't touch my boots at all. Just rode. It was great.

Hi wired,

Thanks for the quick advice. Now i just have to wait for a good deal on burton ruler wide size 7. I can only buy online as the nearest sbowboard shop is an international flight away. I might try heat fitting at home with the rice sock method as well.

Thanks

Hi Felix,

I would not suggest that. I had posted this earlier in this thread but here it is again:

Overheat the rice (easy to do) and your liners will harden and be ruined. They will no longer be remoldable. Underheat the rice and the boot will never reach moldability or only the inner surface will.

I owe you my thanks!! Absent this thread I never would have even considered a size 11, and I'd still be wearing an ill-fitting size 12 or 13.

For other posters: As promised, the rulers are considerably wider than the salomons. (They have that horrible burton lacing system, though, oh well.) Size 11 Ruler Wide boots are at least as wide as the size 12 Salomon Wides.

I've been wearing the Ruler Wides for an hour or two working at my desk; Even with super thin formal cotton dress socks they're pretty damn tight. I have my toes juuuust brushing the front of the liner. When I add a thin wool sock I expect it'll be a bit tighter, and will rapidly pack out to perfect.

Admittedly, based on foot length it's possible I should be in a 10.5. But, well.... those feel REALLY tight (and also much tighter on width than I like; i may have under-measured my foot width.) And since I've been riding pretty darn well for the last 15 years with size 13 boots, going to an 11 is probably all I can handle; even having my toes touch at all is a bit strange, and the 'firm toe pressure' seems like it would drive me nuts.

I want to say thanks for all the help. I rode my size 8 Burton Ruler Wide's over the weekend in Whistler, and what a world of a difference. My legs weren't as tired, sore, and hurting by the end of the day. The size 9's that I had were definitely bad for me.

If anyone wants a pair of 2015 Size 9 Burton Ruler Wide, hit me up. Worn 5 times. Comes with Footprint Insoles and regular Burton's.
