Hi Woodhouse,

I am all for experimentation but what you are experiencing above is entirely consistent with your measurements. You are Mondopoint 290 which is size 11 US in snowboard boots. Each mondopoint size has a very small range of on 5 mm. Go smaller than that range and you should expect pain and numbness in a new boot.

STOKED!

Thanks for the response, I will stick with size 11 from here on out.

How do the pics in my previous post look, consistent with how a foot should look on a correct mondo size insole/liner?

Yes, that looks fine. I usually use the insole as a reference for riders who are just starting the process. Very often new riders are understandably hesitant to go to their correct Mondo size and are riding boots that are far too large. Showing them their foot on the insert is typically helpful with this. You are in the much rarer group who is going too small. Riders that make that choice already know that they are in for some discomfort. The thought is that the process will produce a set of boots that will remain ultra snug after break in. Sometimes that works :)
