Snowboard Boot Sizing Chart

SNOWBOARD BOOT SIZING

There's no quicker way to ruin your day on the slopes than to have poorly fitting boots. Selecting the correct size and stiffness (referred to as flex) of your snowboard boots is crucial. Snowboard boots also

How should they fit? Snowboard boots should fit snug to your foot without having any pinching, poking, or restrictions that cause lack of circulation. Snowboard boots are sized the same as street shoes, and thus fit very similarly to street shoes except that you don't want lots of movement of your foot inside the boot. Snowboard boot liners are designed to mold and shape some to your foot as you wear them, so they will get more comfortable and roomy after you break them in a bit. When you foot is your snowboard boot, lean forward onto the toes and see if you have any "heel lift", wherein the boot of your foot leaves the inner sole of the boot. If you have too much heel lift, this will cause blisters from the movement. Very little to no heel lift is ideal! 

PRO TIP: Stop listening to folks tell you that your snowboard boots should be several sizes smaller than your street shoes! We have dozens of folks that walk into our shop each year that "read online" or had that guy at the "other shop in town" tell them that their snowboard boots should be two sizes smaller than what they wear in their street shoe. Let us be the first to tell you that if your toes are bunched up at the end of the boot when you first put them on, they will not magically get more comfortable the more you suffer in them! Boot liners will mold some to your foot as you wear them, but they won't grow two sizes. Think about how your foot fits in your street shoes and ask yourself if you have much room inside the shoe. If you don't have much room, order that same size in snowboard boots. If you do have room, consider ordering 1/2 to 1 full size smaller than your street shoe. And if you can, go into a snowboard shop and try on a few pairs to know what you're getting into! 

What is snowboard boot flex? Most snowboard boots will have a "flex rating". Sometimes this is a rating from 1 to 10 with 1 being super soft and 10 being the stiffest, while other manufacturers simply use a rating that ranges from Soft to Medium to Stiff. The "flex" of a snowboard boot refers to how much give the boot has. A really stiff boot will give you excellent "feel" of the snowboard and will be the most responsive, while a soft boot tends to be most forgiving and generally better for longer days on the slopes. Most beginner to intermediate snowboarders stick to a soft to medium boot, while most experienced riders that are looking for more performance opt for a stiffer snowboard boot.

 

What type of snowboard boot lacing should I get? Snowboard boot manufacturers are always looking for ways to keep riders as secure as possible inside their boots, which is why you have three main types of lacing systems being used today: traditional laces, quick-pull laces, and Boa laces.

* Note: Half sizes are available in most models of snowboard boots. The sizing chart above is a good starting point, but remember that all manufacturers and boot models vary and each has its own fit profile. If you have the ability to try a boot on in-person before buying, please consider doing that!
