Helvetico Posted January 3, 2010 Report Share Posted January 3, 2010 I have a pair of Head Stratos Pros (26.5) that I've had punched out three times to accomodate my wide feet (26.3 L, 25.8 R: both are 11 cm. at their widest point). I've also had custom footbeds and liners made by the local boot guy, who poked around in the shell and said they were the right size. Haven't ridden the new liners yet, but the right shell still feels tight on my right toe, which is odd, since it's the shorter foot. It does have the higher arch, so maybe that's the problem. I wore both for a while on the carpet last night and the right toe started to tingle after half an hour or so. This wouldn't bother me so much if it weren't for the fact that my toes are still somewhat numb from my first ride of the season, which was TWO weeks ago. Admittedly it was in very cold weather, but most of the time I regain feeling by the end of the day. I really like hardbooting, but I'm not interested in destroying my feet in order to continue doing it I've read some postings in here from folks who had to upsize because of high-volume feet. Is it possible I need even larger shells? Has anyone out there done this successfully? If I could I would buy custom-made boots, but no such things exist for hardboot snowboarders. Should I consider another brand, such as UPZ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
