Default boot buying sucks

Im having an extremely hard time finding boots i like, pretty much because the shop i went to doesnt carry boots over size 12.5. SO i got a limited selection of size 13 to try on. I tired on the Salomon Dialogues in a size 13.5 (which im shocked they had) and thought they were real comfortable but im worried they may be too big and not the right boot for my riding style which is mainly all freeride. Anyway, im about to just say f it, and take those back and order a pair of salomon f22 only sucks because i cant try them on, does anyone know if the f22s fit is similar to the dialogues?

The only thing I can tell you is that Salomons lower lines of boots all fit the same. My experience is that boots in the same "line" will more than likely fit the same. Case in point I tried on some Ride Haze boots, loved the comfort but it was the wrong size. So I bought some Ride Aspects (same line, just one model higher/more expensive) in the right size from TruSnow.com and they fit exactly the same as the Haze boots.

thanks, so are the dialogues and the f22 in the same "line"? they are only seperated by $80 but the dialogue is a freestyle and the f22 is more freeride, all mountain

I have the womens and they pretty much rule.
when ordering boots, make sure they are a smaller size that your shoes and get both feet measured at a shop. Salomon is best ordered using mondo piont sizing so you my want to go to a ski shop to get your size. very important to get a smaller boot is you have 2 sized feet. you can always punch a boot if it doesnt break in, but you cant make them smaller. the f22 is great for big feet, it cuts your boot bulk by at least 1/2 size. good luck, they are worth every penny

thanks for the tip, but as for buying smaller? i tried to get on a 12.5 K2 last night and it wasnt happening, that shit was TIGHT! there are no places even close to where i live that carry the f22 in my size so i could go try it on, and the dialogues are .5 too big, think i should say fuck it and order the f22's?

^ What size F22 you looking for I might have it in my shop and I know we carry almost every boot up to a 13.

In Silverthorne right off I 70 behind the Arby's. I'll be stopping in there Saturday morning so I'll see what we have in a 13 in stock. As of Sunday we only had like 1/10th of our winter stock in but most should have arrived this week.

I ride F20s. My bro rides dialogues and we both love them. i believe that when he tried on dialogues and FDBs (pretty much the same thing as F22s) they were the same size.

You don't want to get stuck with boots that are too big or else you'll be stuck on the mountain unstrapping tightening your boots and getting back on (trust me i learn this the hard way). If anything get something that is a little bit too small. at least that way it give the boots a chance too mold to your feet.
