So do you mean that the 10 and a half is different and that they wont pack out?

No, it means that all sizes (including half-sizes) have different lasts/basic sizing.
For some models what your shop told you is accurate, i.e., the shell is the same for adjacent full- and half-size and the differences are the foot bed and liner. However, for boots with 1:1 lasting (like the 32 Lashed) the whole boot changes even between full- and half-sizes.

So what about the pack out?

I have read that thirty two has allowed for that and that their liners wont pack out like boots used to?
Its frustrating that the companys don't list the length of what each boot is in cm and the general comments are boots should feel slightly uncomfortable in the shop but I know a lot of guys who are 15 to 20 year boarders and they say if its not comfy in the shop its not going to be on the mountain.

I don't know why boot fitting stores even bother with the brannock devices ,I mean if thirty twos sizes are running 1 to 1 and a half sizes smaller than say DC or NIKE.

All I know is that after heat molding with toe caps I was supposed to have more room in toe area and I don't believe its made any difference so I wonder if its a footbed problem or simply I need to upsize?

Short answer: They may pack out for you may not pack out.

Every boot packs out - some more than others, but it also depends on the rider and usage. Heat moldable models tend to pack out a little bit less.

It might be frustrating, but it is just the way it is - because it is not just about size, but mostly about the shape of your foot. Feet are so different that it is virtually impossible to generalize on fit - that is why there really is no alternative to trying a bunch of different models in person.

The point is that with the sizing device you can rule out boots/sizes that will definitely not fit. However, just because the sizing is correct, does not mean the boots will fit correctly - see above.

Default update

Well i went back to store today and they were ok to swap the 10 for the 10.5 ...it did feel better in the toe area on my big toe ...had to tighten the inner liner and no heat molding required so only time will tell....the sales guy said i should still be good for 2 seasons minimum as i only ride no more than 20 days a season...hope to get up more next year...
.about 90% of people who reviwed 32 lasched online say they fit true to street shoe size.i

The worst that can happen is that it packs out a bit too much and someone gets a bargain from me 2nd hand. Id rather have a boot thats comfortable. The 10s were heat molded and they feel a bit cramped at toe.whereas 10.5s are still close to toes but not as much. I think that lies in the footbed....the bootfitter at store said it was close but he wouldnt want me to go into an 11 an i would agree ....will give you guys an update once i use them a few times up the mountain and hope i can help someone with similar questions with 32 lashed who reads these forums.
