Nah I'm normal to be honest. Super average maybe slightly narrow. I'm a 11-11.5 in Burtons.

Yeah I might take a shot. I've got a question for anyone really: I'm a size 11 in my old Burton Imperials but really I'd like my boots to pack out a bit more but I can probably fix that by inserts because my arches stretch my foot our alot (they flatten super easy). How do Nike's fit? I feel like I almost need a 10.5 in Nike's because I hear they pack WAYYYY out. Any input here?

The best advice is to get into a shop and try some Vapens on instead of guessing. If you can't get into a shop, buy a few pairs and send back what doesn't fit. Vapens have a decent amount of flex and mine packed out pretty quick since I rode a decent amount this past season. Dont make the mistake of buying something without knowing you won't have any issues. Especially with changing to a different brand and flex. Average pack out is about a 1/2 size or smaller, obviously depending on the brand from what I hear. Buying different soles made a difference for me as far as comfort.

As I've detailed before, I can't try it on anywhere. The only place locally that carried Nike boots no longer carries them. So since I'm probably going to ebay a pair I need to best estimate my shit. They also are odd in that they only do whole sizes, and the liners vary. So my understanding is that a 10 is going to pack out more because the boot is built larger.

lol @ you.

Estimating your size? Never going to find a boot that fits properly using that method. If you can't try on a pair of Nikes, either wait til you can or go with a different brand that you can actually physically try on. Is the Swoosh that alluring to you?

I hope your estimation skills are on par or find an ebayer that accepts returns...

I've got other boots, and to get a better idea? Yeah it's worth 130 bucks. Worst case I'll buy em, they don't fit and I'll sell them here. Nike shit sells well. Not stressed over it.

Considering I've owned 10 pairs of boots or so I can figure out my size relatively easily and if I don't, time to put em back on ebay. Like I said, worst case I'm out like 20-30 bucks in the difference between costs.

If your like me and don't have the opportunity to demo tons of equipment. We buy a ton of gear on sale and get personal experience with it and flip it if we don't like it. There's more then one way to learn and do things but some people are close minded.
