Boot Fitment Qestion

Hey All,

I have a quick question, because my experience with new boots is very limited.
I just picked up a new set of K2 Maysis boots, and yesterday was my first day with them.

My feet is kinda weird, the right one is a size 11, and the left one is bigger, size 11.5. So I got the boots in the 11. After 1 day of righting my left foot was killing me, particularly the index toe which is longer than my big toe.

The question is will the boot stretch enough or should my size be 11.5s?

Most people have your issue bud.... Almost everyone has 1 leg longer then the other, a foot, an arm, whatever.

But it's really hard to say if your boot will pack out enough... Are the liners heat moldable, I'm not familiar with those boots and don't feel like googling it.

Heat molding can def help you out..

Another thing I just thought about.. Do you have thinner socks? That might ease the break in process

Yeah, I have thinner socks, I'll def try this out next time.

I have to see if the K2 Maysis liner is heat mold-able. If it is this should solve my problem right?

Not sure how your boots are but I just got a size 10 in a pair of Vans and they were snug when I bought them and now that i've ridden them about 6 times out they're really starting to pack out. I could have probably gone down to a 9.5 Give them time and see what happens.

don't buy boots without trying them on.

I don't have much choice since most of the shops don't have many boots in my size or price range.

Go to a good specialty store that does footbeds or custom insoles. Half a shoe size should not be a problem; if you are lucky they may just insert a small heel lift or worse case suggest you need to get custom orthopedics.
