How old are your boots? I bet they will start feeling pretty quickly if they're new. Wiredsport is the guru at boot fitting. They should fit very tight when you are first getting them. I oversized my boots when I first got mine due to wide feet, but I'm dropping 1.5 sizes now.Thanks for your response. I followed your instructions and measured against a wall with a super tiny sock (didn't want to show you my super attractive naked feet ). As I said mentioned, my boots are PERFECT at their size. I tried on size 8, 8.5 and 9 in my boots and they were insane tight because of my slightly wide feet. Currently, in my ride 92s 9.5 I have zero hip slippage, my front toes "lick" the tip of the boot and I feel great riding and walking (I got them molded to my feet, also highly recommend). Super happy and highly recommend the Ride 92s for anyone with similar feet for me.
You are right, every manufacturer is different and it's important to try on with snow/ski socks to find the right fit. I'm happy I have that with my boots.
My dilemma still stands between 156 and 152. I think the 152 will be a perfect board leaning on more park while the 56 will ride a bit better on powder. I'm pretty light so I think I should go down to 152 (they don't make this board in other sizes), worst case it'll be my park board at that size.
If you have any additional advice on the 56 vs 52 debate, please let me know. Cheers!
