I just picked these up off of SAC for $120, but the size 27.5cm (9.5 US Mens) was too small. Figured I'd see if anyone here wanted them for the same price plus any shipping. If not they're going back to backcountry.com.

I'll take them, I need new boots and was thinking of trying out a 9.5 with thin sock instead of the 10 with a normal snowboard sock. email me, tomrefried@yahoo.com

Hey refried -

I rode size 10 for a long time (3 different years of Malamutes), then got a 9.5 thinking it would be fine. I found that for me it was just a little too tight in the toes and I get numb toes/loss of circulation more often. I'm looking to go back to a 10.

Might not be the same for you, but....

The 9.5s were too tight when I first put them on, they felt too narrow and my big toe on my left foot was right at the end of the boot. After I cooked the liners everything is much better, I wore them around the house with thin socks for several hours without feeling uncomfortable, I'll try them out tomorrow and see how they feel.
I've worn Salomon boots (Malamutes, Synapse, Hiking, approach shoes, etc.) for a long time and always wore a 10 but my last pair have been packed out for so long I forgot how they fit when they were new. The 9.5s are a much smaller boot compared to the 10s (I also have a pair of Salomon shoes in 9.5 and they are much smaller than most of my size 10s) but I think they will be OK.
