My Salomon Force 9 (yellow, heat moulded inner boot) (Same model as
the current yellow XScream) fit very much like my old Technicas except
that they have MORE space in the heel which had to be reduced using
those nifty semi-hard *** foam inserts. Other than pushing out
various bunions and calcium deposits (making room in boots for same,
not re-casting my feet) and moving my custom innersoles from my
Technicas, very little was done to make these so I can put them on in
the morning and not take them off again til end of day with no discomfort.
I'd say the Technicas (but look out, Technica has some low volume
offerings in addition to boots made on the old high volume lasts) and
the Salomons were pretty much equal. I use mondopoint size 28.5
in both. 28 denotes shell size (about US men's 10) and .5 denotes
a liner with slightly less padding (for more volume). This onto what
is normally a size 12 foot. (Keep toenails short)
Not too sure about Nordicas, haven't worn them since rear-entry days.
To Langes ad Rossignol, especially the Course, to the low volume list.
Dalbello has both high and low volume offerings.
Raichle and Koflach tend to be pretty high volume.
Try Strolz if really large and high volume are needed.
And there is always Dale http://SportToday.org/
