Does anyone know how the sizing compares with the Scarpa T2? I read that the Scarpa T2 is a lower volume boot. What do people think? Also for shell sizes, is the Garmont 1/2 size the shell size up or down?

I have another question regarding sizes.Does anyone know what this would be in AUS sizing? I am an Australian womens size 7.5 - 8I have a pair of Salomon boots (size 25.5) but i think they are slightly too big. I have a very narrow foot.Any suggestions to find my appropriate size for the Garmont mega-Star?
Take a piece of paper and put it flush against a wall. Put your bare foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall. Make a mark on the paper at the end of your longest toe. Measure from edge of paper to the mark in centimeters. This is your size for ski boots. Boot shells come in one cm increments, so a 24 and a 24.5 are going to fit the same once the liners pack out. If your 25.5 boots are too big, then you'll want to go down to a 24 or possibly a 23 shell.
Are these boots for real? I've been skiing for 24 years and have been tele-ing for the last 7, and decided to make the switch to AT for BC. I have been utterly impressed with the lightness and stiffness of the Garmont Mega Stars. I had my alpine boots custom fit with custom footbeds and was used to excellent control of my skis, and was prepared to give some of that up with these boots. Didn't happen. I get the same translation of subtle foot movements to my ski with these boots, and they weigh a fraction of the amount, and are super comfortable to tour in. I'm ecstatic!
I also purchased the Black Diamond Joules (love 'em, read the reviews) and mounted them with the Dynafit TLT Vertical ST bindings. I wanted a light BC set-up, but it surprised me in being totally solid in-bounds as well. Gear these days, it's nuts.

2 questions about 25.5 size: 1 what is the length of sole in mm? 2 what size range does the shell fit (most shells fit at least 2 different mondo sizes)?
