Default How true do Salomon boots fit?

Ok first off, I know I should try on boots before buying, but I live in Dallas and all the board shops around here only carry Burton and Ride. I have large, narrow feet and have been recommended Salomon boots because of their low profile and narrower construction. I'm thinking of ordering some F20s. The place I'm buying from has a good return policy so I can return them for different sizes, just a lot easier to get it right on the first try. Anyways I wear a 12 in most athletic shoes but like them a bit loose. In slip on boots I'll wear an 11 since they have to fit snug. My foot actually measures 11.25". Basically I need to know if I should order a 29,29.5 or 30. Thanks.

I measure a size 12, most athletic shoes I wear a 13. I have the Malamutes in a 29.5 which is snug but perfect. my toes hit the end but are not jammed or uncomfortable. based on what you say I would go with the 29, definitely not larger. I would also look into custom insoles, much better stock and a good investment in your comfort and performance.

Salomons run true to size. If your foot measures 29.5cm long then a size 29.5 salomon will be the perfect length. If your foot really measure 11.25 inches long then that is 28.5cm and a 28.5 boot would fit the length perfect. That doesn't mean the entire fit will be perfect but it will get you close.

I'll agree, pretty true to fit. I usually wear 10.5s in everything, but my boots are 10s and they're perfect. Of course everything else I buy based pretty much on comfort, not performance, so I would say 10 is a true fit.

I'll throw my comment in as well. They do run true to size. Just make sure you do have narrow feet as the F20s are narrow around the balls of your feet. Otherwise, you'll love the boots.

I'll echo what everyone is saying in that they do run true to size length wise, but different models definitely fit differently. I wear the Maori in a 9.5 and it's a perfect fit, and was when new. Tried a Synapse in the same size, and there's no way I could have worn it. Toe box was way more narrow.

What's your definition of true? Mondo, Euro, or American?

I mean how accurate is the fitting chart they have. If I measure my foot properly and it measures 28.5cm long, will I fit in to a 28.5 boot with out discomfort associated with the boot being too small? I know there are outliers but if 75% of people say that they purchased the same boot size and thier foot size and it fit well, then I would consider that boot to generally fit "true". For instance 90% of people that have worn Puma shoes will tell you that they run small, I have to wear a 13 in their shoes, no matter the model.

I wear a size 11 in my DC boots and they are pretty snug, maybe a little too tight. I wear a 28.5 (10.5) in my Salomons and they are perfect. Athletic shoes I normally wear 11.5
