Default Northwave decade sl sizing

Hi guys, soooo i have been looking to get some new boots for awhile now and i have finally found a pair and bought them.

Northwave Drake Snowboarding (not from this site its just for the pic)

Now they are super comfy and hold my heel really well which is why i was looking for new boots anyway cos my vans jamie lynns had just packed out too much and were a bit worse for wear.

Now here is what i find weird, i wear a size 14 nike shoe, i measure as a size 13 or 14 snowboard boot depending on brand. These northwaves are a size 29.5 mondo which i believe measure as a US12.5. Anyone else have this sort of shit going on with their feet or sizing issues? Now I'm not complaining cos they feel awesome and actually sit in my bindings a lot better.

just curious

This might help you choosing the right size



Btw, I used the Decade SL (11/12 model) and it's a great boot, just keep in mind two things:

1) the inner shole (inlay?) is thermoformable, so in few days on the monuntain it will be roomier(i think you can gain about 5 or 10 millimeters, so choose proper size!
2) the boot flex will get softer after 30-40 days on the hill (depending on your weight and your riding style), than it will be in the softy-freestyle section for the rest of his life!

Cya!

Mondo size is much more consistent than US shoe size. If you look up different sizing charts for a specific mondo size, you'll get a variety of different US shoe sizes because US shoe size is a range and a non-standard range at that.

I appreciate the comments, and I got ya on the sizing difference between US and mondo but what I find weird is that I measure a 30.5 mondo yet northwaves 29.5 fit, and a 29.5 is listed as a 12.5 US and on the box it says 13US just weird. Anyway I bought them and I'm happy so I guess it doesn't matter!!

Yeah, with the 360 ankle holding system your heel will be locked even if your boot get roomier!
The only issue is the insole... it sucks! Replace it with a good sustaining one and the Decede will be an awesome boot!
