ok here is the deal...i, right now, have my friends driver x's on..they are 11's...he and i usually only wear 9.5's but the 9.5's are waaay too small, 10's still feel really tight and toe is almost at the edge so he has been riding 11's for the past year. i have them on now and they are cushy cushy...feel great....but i think they might be a little too long...so the shop i was at did not have 10.5's and i am going to order some boots online.....so would you guys say to go with the 11's that i know feel good..or with the 10.5's...i need the width and maybe a little less in length but if the 10.5's are going to be too narrow i would rather stay with the 11's......

if the right size boot is too narrow, look for another boot. if there is any pain at all, look for another boot. that being said, if the 10.5 fits, but feels snug it will be fine after it packs out.

i have a very wide foot and my northwave decades are the best boot i've ever owned. just as comfortable as my sneakers. they were just on brociety for cheap money and i just bought a second pair to use when these wear down. i freeride 90% and the decades are plenty stiff enough. i think they rate a 8 or 9 on their scale. take a look on backcountryoutlet.com they're going for 75 bucks or so.

good advice ghost....the odd thing is the 11s liners are the same size as the 9.5 backpacking boots i have..so i am not too sure if the sizing is true to size....

if they're comfortable you're good to go. but with a lot of heat moldable liners they'll pack out a half size and you'll end up with boots slightly too large.

someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe salomon produces a wide specific line of boots. the f-20 and f-22 get really good reviews. something to check out.
