Boot advice - narrow foot
 
After a few years using rental stuff I need to start buying my own shit. Read a bunch of FAQ, buyers guides and researching for weeks but still a total equipment noob. :D

Long narrow foot. Any recommendations? :dunno:

I had the same problem finding a boot. I have long feet but skinny ankles and width to my foot. After going to a shop and trying every boot they had, the Thirty Two Prion FT were the only ones that fit right. The others either fit the width and height of my foot good, but squashed my toes, or my toes fit but my foot had so much space around it my foot would move around. I wear a size 12 in street shoes. Size 13 in the 32's were perfect.

Nitro Team TLS

I've tried Burton SW, Burton Driver, 32 Team Two, 32 Prime, Vans (something) DCShoes Radian, DCShoes Judge, Salomon Dialogue, Salomon Synapse, Salomon Malamute, Salomon F22.

The Salomons were "ok" but the heel was still a little too wide and after 10-15 days I would get heel lift and pain in my arch/instep as well as my shin. To be fair I haven't worn them outside of a shop since around 2009.

Nitros have worked the best for me.

In my experience, I've found Nike to be lower volume and narrower than Salomon or Vans.

I wouldn't be surprised. I always wore Nike basketball shoes because they always fit my feet better than any of the other brands.

I'd second this:thumbsup: I have narrow heals and recently got F3s... hold my heal great.

As always though.... go try on a bunch of boots to see what works best for your foot.

I'm a female with narrow feet that has to wear men's boots (narrow but long). I ended up with a pair of Vans after also trying on Rides, Burtons, and Nikes, on the recommendations of some sales people. The Rides/Burtons were too wide in the front. Nikes felt good and fit narrow but the Vans were just as comfy (if not more comfy for me) and half the price because they were last season's model.

I'd try hitting up shops and asking for recommendations.
