it looks like two boards in one; the split personality

Wiredsport Yeah! There have certainly been a ton of variations added to each of the profiles we had originally described. We should probably add a new top level profile though for back foot / backset camber. It has been around for a while now and is showing up in larger #'s in product lines and on the mountain. This is really a very unique profile rather than a variant and should be considered on its own. Of course there are a lot of subtle (and not so subtle) variants even to this profile. But for fact, if you get a light pow day and an opportunity to demo a backset camber model...it may change your world.

You want lightning fast initiation?
It ain't happening in sloppy boots.

Exactly, I find my boots fit like hockey skates at first (really sore all over, but no specific pressure points). Then they pack out to a comfortable, tight, performance fit pretty quick...

First few days in a proper fitting pair of new boots is not fun.

Ok, did you just put your foot in them?

Or did you put your foot in them, smash your heel against the ground, then tie them while holding that downward pressure?

So your foot stayed that far back in the boot?

I do that every single time & my boots are packed out a bit.

After doing that, did you stand straight up?
Straight knees?

That will smash your toes into the end of the boot every time.

I wear size 10 shoes.
Size 11 work boots, they still fit comfy & my foot doesn't slop around in them when I work.

I smash & cram my feet into a size 9 if I can.

Oh yeah, it's fucking horribly tight for the first (depends which model of boot)

Until they pack out a little bit, then they're only just super tight, & not painful any more.

Your boots shouldn't be comfy, definitely not out of the box.

That is, by the mondopoint standard, the foot measurement that they were designed for. You may want to measure your barefoot width as well. That is often an issue.

Regardless of the boot size that you will choose, if your correct foot length is 28.7 that is the measurement that you would want to use for determining the correct board width. Your foot length will be compared to the board width at your stance angles at the inserts - waist width is not helpful for that purpose.

If you want some help with all of that check these threads:
