Default Boot Packout

Typically I wear a size 10 shoe and I measure a size 10.

I tried on some Burton Ruler boots and size 10 were too roomy and 9.5 fit just right.

I threw on some size 10 Grails and they were too big as well, but no size 9.5's to try on.

If the 9.5's feel perfect out of the box will they be too big once they pack out?

Should I go with size 9?

I've taken the thought that when your trying on boots, find a size and style that fits you comfortably in the store, and then go one full size lower. You'll be miserable for your first couple days or so (heat molding will help), but after they pack out you'll be at the perfect size.

If they're comfortable out of the box, you're going to flop around in there after 40 hours of riding. If you can go down to a 9 without crushing your toes, do it.

I will pick up some size 9's and get them heat molded.

I walk around in 10s for most of my shoes, some 9 1/2s, 32 9's fit me perfectly.

Wear what fits, you can downsize ALOT depending on the boot's specific fit to your foot (you find one that fits perfect, you cut out alot of empty space, poof your in a much smaller size -size and a half down is not unusual. )

You want your toes up against the end of the boot when standing, only when u bend your knees it pulls away to the spot where you are used to shoe store idiots mashing their thumb onto your tennis shoe.
