Why not a Burton Ruler.. Wide? Seems like the logical choice here.

But yes, otherwise I would suggest the Synapse Wide. All of the other boots you mentioned are made on a 'D' last, so they won't...

I never said the TM2 would fit you at your mondo (correct) sizing. I said sizing up a size and a half to get your foot into a boot is laughable.

What's laughable here is that you're wearing shoes/boots a size and a half too large.

Mondo is the most accurate sizing of your foot.

I don't give him enough credit to assume he's doing it on purpose.

I mean a twin board. As opposed to a directional board. But yes, also set up with a center stance. Doesn't have to be on the center inserts, just the same distance from tip/tail.
