Awesome shoe, these things are amazing. Very comfortable and really cool looking. I did have to go a half size smaller than my normal size, they probably aren't a full half size too large, but like a 1/4 size large.
Great shoe, super comfortable. Fits a little big, in fact I couldn't get the fit right for my foot. I am usually a 9, and the nine was a touch big. I also tried an 8.5, but it was too small. I went with the non-shearling version in the 8.5. They are a perfect fit. I would love to have kept these if they had fit.
The toe box is quite small. I feel I have a normal to small forefoot and these boots are tight up front. The heel is also very tight, but in a nice snug way. Don't downsize in these. I usually find most boots have extra room and have to go down a size. Not true in the Black Diamonds. I tried both the Methods and Factors and they both fit the same.
I think the construction seems very good. Some comments noted the construction seems 2nd rate and I don't agree. They look as nice as any other ski boot.
