Ok, thank you for that info. I am going to hold out until the end of the month when the site claims the larger sized womens models will be available. And, will update the thread with how it works out.

I have had for several years now a pair of the waxable version of the Madshus Eon in 205cm and nnn-bc magnum binders sitting and finally I am getting the boots to let me drive them!

I wear a 10 1/2 shoe. Alpina's tend to be large. In the Alpina BC1550, the size 44 is the closest fit, but caused blisters on my large toe. The size 45 is too large. In both Rossignol and Salomon boots, a size 45 fits perfectly.
