Default Boots with half a size difference

Hi folks, hope everyone is having a good season so far. My question has to do with snowboard boots I bought recently. They are Northwave Freedom SL's and they have half a size difference between them. Meaning one boot size is an 8 while the other one is an 8.5. The store associate explained to me it may have been a "manufacturer" labeling error or they may have sold the other pair accidentally. He also assured me that it would not be a big deal if there was a half size gap.

I did try them out in the store and both felt great on my feet! I even tried snowboarding with them and have absolutely no complaints. So overall my question is: "does it generally matter if snowboard boot sizes are mismatched by half a size?".

Thanks for all your help folks, stay safe!

If your feet are 1/2 size different than it would be ok. If both your feet fit into the boots snugly and you dont have any heel lift, it's fine. But if one boot fit's sloppy, then that's not good.

Thanks for the quick reply! There may actually be a half size difference between my feet. All I know is these boots are way better than my first pair (K2 Domains I think, yeccchh). Thanks again!

generally your dominant side's foot is SLIGHTLY bigger but it shouldnt be half a size. i assume the side that is bigger is for your dominant foot? glad it worked out for you ... cuz really the peeps who sold it to you should have caught it and refunded/exchanged them for you

Yup my dominant foot does seem to be bigger but that's just speculation. And the store associate did notify me that the boots were mismatched I just bought them cause I was in desperate need of boots and there didn't seem to be anything wrong with the fitting.
Thanks for the reply randomkoreandud!

My left foot is slightly bigger than my right. It would be cool to have a 9 on the left and 11.5 on the right.

Unless they use 1 to 1 sizing it doesn't matter at all. Typically an 8 and a 8.5 in just about every boot manufacturer is the exact same shell length the only difference is in the stock footbed being thicker in the full size.
