jeffwrote a question about Rossignol BC X9 Backcountry Touring Boot on July 3, 2013
I wear a size 42 in rossignol ( non-bc ) classic boot. In other words, a nordic boot. The 42's fit fine but my toes are right up against the toe of the boot. With a bc boot for my new set up--Glitterind skis--- I thought that I might want to go up a size. I'm just going to be doing very easy terrain--no telemark etc. just easy climbs and flats, hoping for glide and get down safely. In short, should I stick with 42's or go up a size? It's summer and I can't try these on. I'm a bit concerned about the break/flex point between the ball of the foot and toes for 'kicking' i.e. engaging the wax/scale pocket. If I go long will it be off etc.
Actually when I look at backcountry's sizing chart, they indicate a 43 eu for a u.s, 9 and a 44 for a 10. Other charts indicate that a 43 eu is a 9.5-10 for u.s. sizing. Yow! I'm a 9.5 looking for a10. Need a euro 44?
