I thought the same, I wear a size 12US after a 13 US boot and a 12 US boot never fitting.

This year I followed SnowboardAddiction.com advice and got a boot as tight as possible without hurting. Now wearing a 11 1/2 US boot. Wow after 6 days of snowboarding boots fit like a glove no heel movement.

Now mind you tight means not hurting, and every boot is different so go and try on your boots for the proper fit. Movement of your foot in your boots is a big no no.

Yeah you heard wrong. It's best to get snowboard boots that fit like hockey skates. They should be very snug without hurting badly. Once they break in they'll fit like a glove and feel amazing. If you can stop shipment or send them back, I think you'll be happier.

Is there nowhere to try boots on in Kosovo? You're much better going to a shop and trying on as many boots as you can, don't buy a certain model because of features, buy because it fits.

I'm 28, live in Cleveland, OH, and this is my second season.

Haven't left the OH/NY area, but have a trip planned to Snowbird/Alta in February...can't wait.

I love the park, even though I'm not great at it. Working on grabs off of big jumps and trying to ride switch.

My current setup:
Rome 2013 Agent Rocker 155
Union Force Bindings
Thirty-Two STW Boa Size 10

Okay hi everyone. Figured out I should introduce myself since I'm new here.

So, I'm a 20 year-old snowboard enthusiast from Finland. Been riding for 8 or 9 years so not a complete newbie anymore.
Riding a Nitro Haze at the moment which is perfect for my style. In the last years I've developed a skateboarding-like style including a lot of jibbing and all kinds of weird stuff.

Hey all. New here as well. Been boarding on and off for 12 years. I learned in the Tahoe area but most recently moved to Washington where I've picked it up more seriously than the 2-3 trips per season that I used to do.

I'm 5'11, 175 lbs and ride a 156 Slash Paxson and a 161 Slash straight. Just finished with school where I milked the financial aid from being a veteran to re-equip myself and ditch my 03 Burton Bullet, so I'm stoked to get out this season. Just need more snow up here!
