I was just at my local shop and put on a pair of the Company binding liners and before i even put my foot in the bindings they fit but real tight up against my toes,almost like they are too small.However they are size 10 and i wear a 9-10 LF binding adn my feet are 9.5-10 in a normal shoe. <BR> <BR>I put them in the bindigs and they still felt tight but not sure if too tight or normal..? <BR> <BR>So first question is are they supposed to feel that tight and allows for molding ? <BR> <BR>I mean do they have a 10.5 or is the next size 11? i would think too loose would be worse but are you supposed to go up a size? <BR> <BR>secod question is the boards ,i dont ride flex so do you normally go up a size or two and ride a bigger flex board then the foam or normal?down a size? <BR> <BR>im going to demo next week when i get time to go out so i want to grab the right size so its a fair demo..

Bill - You could have asked the shop don't you think? By the way, a flex board won't fix your head scraper backrolls. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

Bill, <BR> <BR>The boots are running a little bit small. You should be ok if you want to size up to the 11's. But if you want to stick with the 10's they will break in and grow about a quarter to a half size from either using them or molding them. I wouldn't get them so tight that your toes are bending though. Thats to tight. <BR> <BR>As far as board sizes go. You can go up a size if you would like. The boards are very light weight in the air and spin effortlessly. Going up in size will give you a larger landing surface for softer landings. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions at all. Hi-5 from the Co. Crew. <BR> <BR>Jaret

Yea Bizz as you may know I was having a little trouble with that too. I think I might be alright with the whole heat molding thing, but if worst comes to worst is there anyway I can send my current ones in for a size up ?

For sure we want every one who supports us to be happy. Just a little trick to heat mold the boots. Throw a blow dryer in them for a little bit till they heat up inside. Same with snowboard boots if there is an insole in the boot make sure that comes out before you heat them or the insole will shrink. I have put custom insoles in my boots for a little extra arch support. After heated up throw on a pair of socks tighten them up tight and leave them on until they cool. The socks will help pack them out a little more then just with your regular feet and give you the room you need. Thanks again for your support. This is just the very tip of what we have in store and where we are going. <BR> <BR>Jaret

Ok, so what should I do to trade them out? Will it be directly with you or WakeNSkate because I bought them there?

wake2wake_66 02-18-2009 5:24 PM

Bill, is Jeromy going to let you demo one of the Co. boards? I am going to Wetherford Friday and I will try on some boots. <BR> <BR>I was wondering about the board sizing too, I rode a 140 CWB Marius last year and I always thought it was a tank. Should I go with a 138-139 or a 140-142?

bizz 02-18-2009 5:46 PM

I will set it up with the boys at WakeNSkate. But if they don't have what you are looking for I will look into swapping them out for you. Let me know what size you have and are looking for. <a href="mailto:Jaret@companywake.com">Jaret@companyw ake.com</a> <BR> <BR>Justin, <BR> <BR>If you rode a 140 Marius you would be cool on either the 138 Severance or the 139 Recruit. I am riding the 139 Recruit right now but all summer I rode the Recruit 143 proto's and it didn't feel big at all due to the thin tip and tails. But I usually like to ride a bigger board. <BR> <BR>Jaret

No worries, glad to help. We will have our full web site up probably later this week. So look for that.
