|Triple8Sol||Salomon F-boots are made for a narrower foot, so you should try those on.|

Mondo is one of the most accurate ways to measure a boot. I measure at a 27.5 on the left and just shy of a 29 on my right. I can get into a 28 with minimal work. The problem lies in the foot model that was used for the boot. Each company uses a different last and foot model. With an AAA width you're definitely going to end up in something like a Northwave, certain Salomons, or maybe a Ride. That's ungodly narrow so getting a snug fit will definitely be an issue.
The thing to understand is that some companies measure the liner size and others measure the sole size.

|Extremo||Just went to the shop to try on some boots...10-10.5 is my size depending on the boot model so apparently mondo sizes dont come close. But I found a bigger problem. My foot is as narrow as they come a AAA on the width chart. Not one there was tight enough in the tow box. Damn.|

|Deviant||Cant talk too much about Euro sizes but when I had my feet measured for size I came up as a 9, tried on the 9 and it was too tight, the 9.5 fit perfectly. It really comes down to how the boot fits more than just a size number. (my shoe size is 10, go figure)|

|Jameus||I think every shoe/boot fits a little different. Mondo is just a goofy word for the size in CM and since cm are much smaller than IN I trust that number to be more accurate for sizing, also b/c I grew up in Can and learned metric 1st lol. I also think that some of those conversion charts aren't very standardized in regards to US sizes. I was looking the other day and based on the size of my foot in IN's the charts conversions ranged from 8 - 9.5! So who the heck knows man.|

Mondo Size in Snowboard Boots?
Does Mondo size really apply to snowboard boots? I just went to my shop and had my foot measured. It showed a true 11. I wear a size 10 shoe because I like them to fit snug (mostly for skating). I ride a size 9 snowboard boot currently because I like having the lowest boot profile possible (it's a tight and at times uncomfortable, but never painful).
So I took my mondo size and its 27.5 but that converts to a 9.5 US mens Ski boot. So does that mean I should be in a 9.5 snowboard boot? Even though I'm a true 11?
