ThirtyTwo Sizing Accuarcy?
 
Considering ordering a pair of ThirtyTwo Prion or Exus boots. I wear size 13 in both my regular and running shoes, which is my exact size (toes touch the ends comfortably without pressure)
Before I go ahead and order online, I was wondering how exact ThirtyTwo's sizing is. Are they right-on, too small, or too big?

Thanks.

That is something you would have to go to a local shop to find out. Everyones foot is shaped differently and the fit could be different for everyone.:dunno:

They usually run smaller then the size. I learned that lesson myself.....

I meant the length. The nearest shop is a long drive away. I'd be ordering from zappos.com anyway which has free shipping both ways so the customer can try on the products, but it would be a hassle to have to return something if it's the wrong size, so I'd rather ask on the forum first just to make sure.

I just bought some Thirty Two Focus Boas...I wear a size 12 shoe, and wound up buying size 12 boots. I couldn't even get my foot into a smaller pair. I wore them around for a few days then had them heat molded. Only made a couple trip out with them so far, but even if they pack out some I think they'll be fine.

Does that answer your question? Probably not...but Thirty Two's seem to take the size variations/packing out into account.

I just ordered a pair of thirty two stw's in sz14. I wear a 13 in most brands all day but my Burton's and some DC's I tried on were just to tight for my toes. 1-4 business days and i'll let you know how they fit compared to my real life measurements.

Thanks for the input.
So are they painful or snug?
I'd like them to fit well with my toes at the ends, but not so they're painful or make my toes numb. I only ride once or twice per week so they'd take a while to pack out.

They're just snug. They have a great inner boot, and after the heat molding it seemed to be a good fit. They also include heel-lift pads, but I haven't used those yet. I admit, I haven't ridden mine hard yet, and don't really know how much they'll pack out, but they're still pretty snug, not painful at all.

Ok, that definitely answers my question!:thumbsup: That's exactly how I'd like them to fit, with the size 14 Ride boots I have now becoming loose and feeling too big.
I also have wider feet which makes the Ride boots a little painful when I sometimes go on my toe edge, and everyone says ThirtyTwo's boots are wide so that's how I know I don't need to worry about that.

I'll still wait to see how Mjigga99's STWs turn out though before I pull the trigger and order.
