This has to be a joke, right? That is your foot and your shoes?!? Did it never dawn on you that your toes barely extend past the bottom lacing holes and that the entire toe-box of your tennis shoe is empty of any toes?!?

Not trying to bust your balls or insult you but this is... incredible.

eli783 I charge on a 158, and only weigh 155 so a 157 should be perfect for you

Thanks!
I'd recommend the 157, as a beginner you can go a little shorter, makes turns easier to do/learn.

The 161 would be better for deep powder and going fast in big open bowls but that's a ways down the road.

Have fun, lots of would kill to live in UT and have those hills as our home turf.

Hi MB14. To clarify, you do not need to measure your foot again for the purpose of board sizing. Your foot is 26.67 and that is all you need to know. You want the 157.

STOKED!

Powhound97 Just to understand.... You're feet are 10.5 inches but you wear a size 13...?

I wear a 10.5 and my feet are 10.5
Something is wrong with your feet... Do they grow when you put your foot in your shoes?
Even put on flip flops and watched your feet?

Dude, you need to post pictures of your feet next to your shoes XD

Take your 13's & put the sole of your shoe against the bottom of your foot.

It doesn't seem odd to you that there is 3-5 inches of extra shoe there?

Hate to break it to ya, but you should probably remeasure your 10 inch hammer

Well obviously I'm taken aback that I've been wearing the wrong sized shoes for the better part of a decade, but no, it didn't seem odd to me. I never measured my foot; I simply tried on shoes until I found one that fit comfortably. Without trying wide shoes, I evidently had to go up that many sizes for the correct width. When I walk, there is no forward-back shift, and the width is perfect.

I never had enough spare time to sit down and compare my foot to my shoe to analyze the differences

Lol if any of you think I'm trolling, and you live in the SLC area, I'll kick field goals with 5 different pairs of 13's for you.

eli783 sounds like a date with a decent bootfitter is in order
