Hi @Wiredsport,Hi Andelica,
I am really stoked when riders come to see the benefits of their actual Mondo sizes. Even that can be quite process. For that reason I don't suggest that riders go smaller than Mondo (although I fully understand that some do choose to).
Hi Surefire,Hello everyone,
Brand new here and looking to buy my first pair of non-rentals to really commit. Last time I went up several different sizes of rentals all gave me immense pain, the rental store told me I may have wide feet, I have also been told I'm flat footed, but no one seems to be able to tell me what is actually going wrong so that I can definitively decide on the right fit. I live in NE and have no subject matter experts available for try ons.
I was very happy to find your sizing guides and hopeful to receive some more certainty. As a background, I have currently ordered some Burton Ruler 11s (non-wide) because a Scheels employee told me if I sized up it might work. (Before I found these tips.
My daily comfort boot is a MensUS 10 W (as in not a snowboard boot)
My feet both measure 29 cm length (so 29 Mondo, right? Which shows as a size 11 on Burton website)
Both are 10 cm wide (so 3.93 inches, meaning C or D on the width chart depending on if it's using US shoe size or snowboard boot size, I'm not sure)
I originally thought I needed a size below my boot size and wide but bought a regular 11 to "size up for width" BUT these measurements tell me I"m not wide and that I'm also not even actually sizing up. Did I just stumble into buying the perfect size on accident? Pictures for reference.
I will redo my measurements today but all of the walls in my house have that molding. We made sure to be solid against the wall and the molding was high enough that only my ankle bone had any overhang (if there was no molding the ankle bone would be pushed laterally without any movement of the foot anyway). We'll use the countertop island tonight lol. I didn't see that video linked in the fitting post that's pinned on the topic btw, might be a good idea to link it along with the word for word instructions! Thanks for your reply!Hi Surefire,
I will be happy to help. We are going to need to get those measurements again without the base molding. Your foot is overhanging the molding which is giving false readings. Please watch this video and pay particular attention to the pitfall section. STOKED!
Hi,Here are my measurements. My widest feet is my right foot which is a touch barely under 10cm and my longest foot is my left foot which is 26cm.
So from the mondo chart, I'm considered a E width US size 8.
Does burton or another company that make step ons, make a E wide size boots yet?
I asked this a season or 2 ago and it seem that there was no company making E size step ons.
I was hoping this season or next that there will be more companies offering E wide boots.
I am kinda new here and looking to buy my first pair of non-2nd hand boots to really commit. I was very happy to find your sizing guides and hopeful to receive some more certainty. As a background, I have currently bought Burton Ion 8.5. However, i am too aware of my toes in the boot. When I am wearing the boots, but not touching my feet to the ground, my toes are not really in contact with the front side of the boots. However, as soon as I touch the ground (in any pressure point heels or toes) my toes start to get pressurized (not a slight pressure).
Here is my data and picures for reference.
My feet both measure 26.2cm length
Both are 11 cm wide (when I am standing still)

My old boots are:
Solomon savage RTL US 8 (26cm)
(i thought there were small for my foot, i have felt some annoyance on my toes after few hours of snowboarding. However, when I wear these boots, I dont even feel any pressure on my toes when I am stepping down with them or walking carelessly with them)

New boots I have recieved are US 8.5

According to the insturctions and guides, these boots should be (may be not the most ideal) a nice fit for my foot. However, feeling pressure in my toes while not even riding them but only wearing them made me confused. There is a (US 9) Burton drive x in the same store that I can swap these ions. What would you suggest?
Big thanks in advance!
