|scottik187||a $50 boot fitting fee is a quick way to turn people away from your store IMO.|

|BurtonAvenger||50 dollar boot fitting fee, hmm they might be on to something there. I might have to start doing that so the idiots won't waste my time.|

dude it is a total pain to find a store that sells boots at a reasonable price over here.
i saw a pair of 32 Prions retailing for $630 yesterday, what a rip off. The Aussie dollar is close to all time highs against the US, i mean is like $1US=$0.95AU, but shops here in Australia still sell snowboard equipment at least double the RRP in the USA.
Stores here have gone as far as to charge you a $50 boot fitting fee, which is only refundable if you buy the boots. You just can't charge so much!

|BurtonAvenger||Just find someone that can actually fit you.|

I guess it's a pain to find them in Australia, but you really need to try them on to see what fits. Sounds like you are inbetween a US 11 or 12. Pretty common sizes to stock out here. Probably because we are a bunch of fat ass tubby bitches in the US. Aren't boots offered in half sizes for you guys too? Sounds like to me you're an 11 1/2 US. (Splittin' the difference, I am a genius like that...)
If anything, you may have to go with the larger size and have a shop add some volume filling stuff to get the right fit. Again, you're going to have to try them on. Even the same exact boots of the same size can fit differently.
