Burton Supreme/ Salomon Optima sizing
In my town they don't run Burton in my size range (most brands actually) so I am trying to find out a little bit more info. Salomon Optima is also another boot I am interested in.
I currently wear Womens Nike Zoom Force 1. My boots gave up the ghost after a few seasons and I wanted to replace them. I bought the same size (US5.5) and the same year..not the same colour. Unfortunately when I got them and tried them on they felt perfect unlike their predecessor. I knew they were going to give despite getting the same size.
I'm wondering if i should go down one more half size. I wear a US6 EU36.5, UK4 and measure MONDO 22.5, in regular shoes.
The 5.5 are 22.5 cm but have packed out...annoying since my last pair were okish.
The Burton Supreme have what I like in a boot (stiff but great for whole mountain incld freestyle once broken in)
My Nikes are great but have less ankle articulation that I would like. Seeing as I cannot try on either a 5 or a 5.5 in Burton and Salomon or the 5 in Nike I want to know how the sizing and fit in the Supreme (and Optima) are.
Are the Burton Supreme a wide fit boot? (undesirable), they look like the heel hold would be good (massive challenge with my Achilles)
What about sizing...if I were to get the 22.5 would they again pack out??
How do the Optimas stand up? Are they too similar to the Nikes?? (thegoodride leads me to think they are similar)
Thanks for getting through my waffle.
