Fitting boots to feet isn't hard... until you start dealing with the head attached to the feet.
Only if you’re buying an identical boot to one already fitted by a boot fitter, and which fits without notable modification.What are your thoughts on buying boots online? Not covid related,(as there is a thread on that already) just in general.
If this has been discussed in other threads feel free to direct me there.
Oooh that's the dream, for sure. My boots, liners and insoles have had an entire seasons worth of modifications done to get them dialed, and at this point I'm scared to let them out of my sightI agree with everyone's consensus but there is one exception worth noting. If you find a boot you love and fits perfect consider buying a second pair online cheap as it gets phased out. Getting the right boot is so rare that its sometimes worth ordering a second pair dirt cheap as the boot becomes older and priced down to move inventory.
During Oct/Nov, it shouldn't be too difficult to find a 24.5.If your shell size is a men's 24.5 mondo, like me, you might not have much choice but to buy online. In my case I 'shelled' out (pun intended) for 3 different boots then made an appointment with a boot fitter to decide which one to keep and returned the others.
This problem is two fold. 24.5 is the most popular women's size and 24.5 for a men's boot is way at the front edge of the bell curve. Better boots shops will carry the latter, but rarely not more than one size per model and in some cases not all models.I have definitely had issues finding 24.5s in retail stock.
Yes, I meant "men's" (as @Vinnie pointed out); I haven't had a 24.5 issue on the women's side.This problem is two fold. 24.5 is the most popular women's size and 24.5 for a men's boot is way at the front edge of the bell curve.
