LordOrion Yeah, with the 360 ankle holding system your heel will be locked even if your boot get roomier!
The only issue is the insole... it sucks! Replace it with a good sustaining one and the Decede will be an awesome boot!

cjcameron11 I appreciate the comments, and I got ya on the sizing difference between US and mondo but what I find weird is that I measure a 30.5 mondo yet northwaves 29.5 fit, and a 29.5 is listed as a 12.5 US and on the box it says 13US just weird. Anyway I bought them and I'm happy so I guess it doesn't matter!!

Bones Mondo size is much more consistent than US shoe size. If you look up different sizing charts for a specific mondo size, you'll get a variety of different US shoe sizes because US shoe size is a range and a non-standard range at that.

LordOrion This might help you choosing the right size

Btw, I used the Decade SL (11/12 model) and it's a great boot, just keep in mind two things:

1) the inner shole (inlay?) is thermoformable, so in few days on the monuntain it will be roomier(i think you can gain about 5 or 10 millimeters, so choose proper size!
2) the boot flex will get softer after 30-40 days on the hill (depending on your weight and your riding style), than it will be in the softy-freestyle section for the rest of his life!

Northwave decade sl sizing

Hi guys, soooo i have been looking to get some new boots for awhile now and i have finally found a pair and bought them.

Northwave Drake Snowboarding (not from this site its just for the pic)

Now they are super comfy and hold my heel really well which is why i was looking for new boots anyway cos my vans jamie lynns had just packed out too much and were a bit worse for wear.

Now here is what i find weird, i wear a size 14 nike shoe, i measure as a size 13 or 14 snowboard boot depending on brand. These northwaves are a size 29.5 mondo which i believe measure as a US12.5. Anyone else have this sort of shit going on with their feet or sizing issues? Now I'm not complaining cos they feel awesome and actually sit in my bindings a lot better.

just curious
