boots from a travelling sales man and now the owner of Flow binders too?

life sucks for some!

i am heartened by the fact that no matter how bad life seems to get, there is always someone out there worse off!

Banno Then flog them off as well I'm sure it wont be hard to off-load gear to staff up the mountain. We'll all be lookin for cheap gear.

oliisfullysick yeah, i do get a bit of heal lift when strapped in, ill prob just try flog these off, and grab some more over there.

wasnt quite of the back of a lorry, they set up in a hotel function room, ha, meh i didnt pay to much and guess its a lesson learned.

the only thing im worried about is when i get smaller boots my large flows may b 2 small.

PaoloSmythe oops.... i thought i read you were going to whist FOR 2 weeks, not IN 2 weeks.

a sesason might be a pricey rental period!

mind you, i also read your first post as starting: 'i live in anus'....

quitting caffeine is a bitch for my attentive skills!

PaoloSmythe couver ain't much cheaper than whistler from my experience. and there is a better use of your tourist time than trawling around shops in a big city IMO.

but your boots are defo too big; i am mondo size 28 and if you are meant to be a seppo 8... i reckon you should rent some once you get to the hill rather than fork out big bucks.

and next time, don't buy junk from the back of a lorry!

Banno If your gonna be there for the season then there is no shame in forking out a few bucks to be comfortable for the season. 5 months is a long time to spend in cheap boots that hurt your feet and wont support you (this is assuming they are some cheapo brand)

I'd be keen to have a good look through Van and see if you can try a few more on and get some good advice rather than that of a travelling salesman....

In saying that whistler is gonna be epic this year. i can feel it. i hope.....

pritty sure my boots are to big. how big is to big?

i live in aus and there arnt many snow gear shops, but i bought snowboard boots at the begining of the year, some company that travels around the country saling cheap gear, anyways i tried the boots on and they seemed to fit fine and the salesman, was sure they were aswell.

there a jap size 28, which only till now i realized is a 10us, and according to my foot measurment should b an 8. when i tryed on the boots i never realized how far back my heel needed to be, and after slaming it into the boot i have a good cm at least from my toes to the front.

im just wondering should i just go get some new boots straight up or try with these? im going to whistler in two weeks, but am guna b in vancouver for 5days beforehand, and dont know if i should try these out and if theyre no good, buy new boots in whistler $$$$ or just buy new ones before i try these, in vancouver,?

im guna b there for the season and am a novice

any help would b awsome aye
no idea about these things
