View Full Version : Urgent Carbon 2 sizing question
Friend want's to get Crabs 2, but since he can't try those skates to see witch size fits him the best, he looked at sizing chart posted here a while ago and noticed that his foot is ~277mm, perfectly between size 43 and 44.
So my question is should he buy a size 43 or 44?
Also, I've heard that carbons run 2 numbers on one shell, so if that's true, are 43 and 44 actually the same shell size with different liner? If so, will liner stretch to fit him perfectly?
Speak American or gtfo.
Get 43, individual shell sizes
43, are you sure? Will the liner break in and give few extra mm then? It's kinda important to know what we are ordering because we won't be able to return skates if size isn't right :???:
get in contact with CK, he has a pro skate for ...
I am 27,5 and 43 fits me perfectly. A little wiggly room with really thin socks. 44 would be too large.
Also, (if in worst case) they are going to be too tight for him, can heat molding help ?
Yeah, better to go smaller, heat mold and deal with some toe pain than have to wear thick ass socks for a year. This is coming from experience.
To put it from a guy who got mixed up with sizes! Buy one size smaller than your usual skate size! I bought a size 11 and I really should have bought a size 10!
im a size 7 in razors, usds, and remz
got a size 7 carbon 2 and they fit perfectly, so id say get the size hes been skating or downsize one
Doesn't that make him a perfect 43?
btw I have some deshi carbons in size 42 which footbed is exactly the same length as a 41 USD carbon 2 (264,4mm), my foot is 26cm at the longest point. I don't know how this works with the C2s, but in the deshis I think your foot could have been a tad longer than the footbed without causing any problems since the toe area is extended farther out than the footbed itself.
I'd go with the larger size. Then if he feels there is a little too much room he can put in a thicker footbed and heatmold them to get it right.
