this!I go a size down in ski boots, but thats because I have low volume feet. I wish I didnt, cause it takes a bit of work (grinding/punching) to get them to my foot's length.
Yes, actually, I have a pair at home right now that I'm probably going to post for sale soon. Volume-wise, they are OK (would need some grinding, but shouldn't be too bad). Length-wise, it's really, really tight. There is literally just a couple of mm of room in the shell (without the liner), so they would need to do quite a lot of grinding to make them work. [I should probably note that when Lange introduced DualCore, they reduced the BSL by 3mm, from 306mm to 303mm in size 26.5, which probably doesn't help.]Have you tried on a 25.5? It would be less volume, ie. Narrower. Might be too narrow and to short.
Here is the quote from @onenerdykid (from the comments here):Yeah that's pretty much everything about ski boots.
