Well, the new boobs arrived today in size 13. They are nice!



So, for the sizing... surprisingly they feel like they could be half a size small.
What I notice is that my toes feel like they're slightly curled over. when in the boot. So I removed the insole and stood on it the see just how close the fit is, and it's short by about a centimeter.
Here's my foot on the insole, with one of my snowboarding socks on. As you can see my toe is slightly overhanging it.





Since they don't do half-sizes at 13, I have 2 questions for you guys who are more familiar with how boots pack out...

1. When I get new boots, should the insole:
a) be a little shorter than my foot (these boots)?
b) the exact same length?
c) a little longer?

2. Are my toes:
a) supposed to be curled slightly or
b) supposed to be flat out in the boot?

If it turns out that these are a little too small than I could go with the 14s, which should arrive on Tuesday. I don't think heat molding is a option because there are no stores around that actually offer it.
Thanks.

32 Focus Boa

I bought a pair of 32 Focus Boa boots online and had to return them. I wear a true size 12 and they stuffed up my toes way too much. The dealer say they pack out ALOT but I wasnt willing to risk it and returned them. I wouldnt have been able to ride with them log enough to "pack out" because they were so uncomfortable. I ended up getting some K2 Maysis and I love them!

Sounds like you may have had the same issue. I ride about once a week, twice at the most so I doubt I'd wear them often enough for them to pack out. My toes feel kind of cramped- just a bit curled so my foot isn't flat. I know from being a distance runner that when a persons feet get hot over the day (swell slightly with increased blood pressure), you need a little room for them to breath.

Everywhere I've looked so far, including Trasworld, say that for new snowboard boots you toes should 'just touch the end of the boot'. Definitely not the case here.

Without half-sizes at this range, I might just have to wear the 14s. I'll see how they fit in comparison on Tuesday, unless they arrive earlier.

I hear that. I'm a size 8, and I've been comfortably rocking a size 9 in the Thirty-Two Lashed

OP If you have the time, I'd return them and get a size up. Really makes a difference in the level of comfort you could get out of these boots.
I'm personally a big fan of ThirtyTwo, Deeluxe, and - to a lesser extent - Vans boots. I wouldn't want one of my favourite brands leaving you with a sour taste in your mouth simply because their sizes run a tad small

Yep Steezy, I believe you're the 3rd person here who's gone up a size with ThirtyTwo boots. I've confirmed that the size 14s will arrive on Monday. They're the Fast Track version though because all the online stores I checked had ran out of the laced version in 14.
My last boots were Boa, and to be honest I loved the amount of adjustability I had when I tired these. The new thicker laces only took a few seconds longer then the Boa did (My first boots had rope laces. They were difficult to tie and sometimes burned my fingers.)
The fast track looks good and much easier to use and lock and release than other brands. When I locked the liner laces on these boots, it literally would not move no matter how hard I pulled it, so I'm hoping that the FT system will hold just as good.

I've only tried on these boots, and I've made sure they're absolutely spotless before putting them back into the box. I'll return them after I've confirmed the fit of the 14s on Monday, when I'll update here.

Heck, if they fit I'll make a full review of them after using them on the hill. I haven't seen any actual detailed reviews of the Prion FT yet, except on The Good Ride (it's a crap review mostly about the possibility of the locks breaking when walking around, or some gibberish like that.)

Relax Chomps, that was only a typo. I could edit it out but it's too funny, so I'll let it live!

No (.)(.) for you!

I find 32's (at least my Focus) pack out quite a bit. When you have them heat molded, they can put a toe cap on your toes to give you some extra room there. I had Vans in 11 that fit quite well and bought 10.5 32's, after they packed out I regretted not going even smaller.

Whatever you do, get some quality aftermarket insoles.
