Hope you're not like that when it comes to women....

I've never ridden Burton boots so I wouldn't know how they compare. It looks like each of the outsoles are the same so they're probably all based on the same sizing. (Rough Diamond and ID's for example).

After walking around in them for the past 2 days I could def have gone another half size down to a 9.5.

I didn't buy another pair of Celsius just because I had my eye on these for awhile and wanted to give them a try. When I got my replacement Celsius I sold them cheap and put the cash to these. I guess I'll see if I regret just not keeping the Celsius instead of buying these. I'm already a little disappointed in these because the 10.5 Celsius fit perfectly centered in my M/L Unions with the heel loop extended all the way. But to center these I had to turn the disk and slide the binding back 4mm. So it limits stance options now.

Outside of the size of the outsole the fit is comfortable. The speed lace system is fast and they tighten up maybe better than the Celsius. I'm eager to see how they perform so I'll deal with it.

If you were to hold out for a 9.5 then maybe you wouldn't have to turn the disk.

That's what I'm thinking too. I go through boots every year so worst case they'll be replaced at this time next year anyways.
