BTW- I recently tried on a new pair of Alaskas- blown away by how much stiffer they are than my broken in pair.

HOWEVER- the sole-flex of my broken-in Alaskas is still more supportive than a softer-flexing boot like the Rossi BCX6.(my son has a brand new pair). And my broken-in pair of Rossi BCX6 has a very soft, unsupportive sole-flex.

I am a size 11 US, my T-4's are 28.5. Not that it matters, but my Alico Ski March are 10 UK. I have no Euro size boots. Some charts say 44, others 45 for the Alaska. Any opinions are appreciated.
Thank you

I would think you should go with EU45. I have a pair of Alaska EU45s at home, would you like me to measure the insole for you when I get back?

Ben,
I would appreciate that. It should be pretty easy to figure out length from that measurement.
Thank you,
Bob
