Salomon Sizing

I'm looking at a pair of Salomon boots and was wondering how close they usually run on sizing. I normally wear a size 14 and most shops don't carry them that big so I would have to order them. Before I do I just wondered if anyone had any experience.

Thanks,

That is good to hear. 14s are hard enough to find to even order. I'll have to at least find a place to try a pair on before I buy but it is tough.

I agree. I normally wear a 9 shoe, but wear size 8 F20s.

I typically wear a 10.5 shoe and I have 9.5 F22s. I wish they were 10s.

Thanks for all the replies. I wear a 14 in my current boot and a 14 in all my athletic shoes but a 13 in dress shoe. Yesterday I found a great deal on a pair of last years Malamutes in size 13 so I ordered them. I hate ordering stuff like this but even at most shops I would have to do the same. Hopefully they will be here next week and I can give them a try.

Measure your foot in metric. That's how Salomon does things. A size US 13 is ment to fit a 30.5cm foot.

measuring my foot that way shows that a 30.5 should be fine it is just a matter of they fit once I get a sock on and all the padding in the boot. I checked my local shop and they don't sell Salomon so I'm just going to give it a try.

I wear a size 11 street shoe, size 9.5 in burton boots and 10.5 in salomon F22's. I had a 10 in the salomon F22 and lost two nails on both feet after 2 days riding. They don't pack out hardly at all.

Yeah, I do wear a 13 in a dress shoe so I know I can wear a 13 but I'm just worried about them being to tight for snowboarding. I've always thought you wanted them a bit tighter so your foot wouldn't move around so much but I'm not up for losing anymore toe nails. I've done enough of that from shoes that are a size to small.
