Default Riedell Boot Sizing

Doc,

Hello! I'm going to be replacing my 16 year old 595's soon, which are a size 12, and was wondering what the difference in inches is between a 12 and a 12.5.

I'll also be getting them somewhat customized, without the reinforcement on the right boot (this always bothered me after a long day skating); does the 695 have the same reinforcement on the right boot?

Thanks!
NP

Default Riedell Sizing etc.

Doc,

Hello! I'm going to be replacing my 16 year old 595's soon, which are a size 12, and was wondering what the difference in inches is between a 12 and a 12.5.

I have not made a detailed study of that. Riedell does seem to follow the 1/3 inch per size standard.

I'll also be getting them somewhat customized, without the reinforcement on the right boot (this always bothered me after a long day skating); does the 695 have the same reinforcement on the right boot?

If you are refering to the counter in the heel that extends forward, then they are similar. You may be getting into something expensive. I would advise calling Riedell directly and finding out for sure.
