I am looking a the scarpa invernos and I have no store to try them on near me. I where a sz 9 1/2 in hiking boots. should I stay with the same size or do they tend to run big or small? anything will help. yeah I know I should try them on in person..

I found the Inverno to be sized the same as my street shoe -compared with Nike, New Balance, et. al. In retrospect, I think i might have gone a 1/2 size larger to allow for VBL sock, but the fit is excellent as is (no blisters, bruising, etc). Yep, definitely try a pair on or maybe call Magic Mountain in Banff,CA - www.magicmountain.com - i think, to get the "800" tollfree telephone number. They were quite helpful and very knowledgeable. I tried mine on in their shop (whilst on me honeymoon!), then ordered them later from the states. Have fun!!!

Not just size 9... but how wide?

They tends to fit well for narrow feet. When I ordered my pair of invernos, I put on my sock system (liners, thick wool socks, VBL...), traced the outline of the bottom of my feet, and the local dealer sent the tracing to Scarpa for sizing. I don't think there is a good short cut in buying any plastics without trying them on. So if you're buying them by mail, make sure you can exchange them or get a return/refund. Good luck.

I bought plastics a year ago. had to mail order too... no choice. I ordered 3 pr of Verticals and 2 pr of invernos. I wear a 11 running shoe and usually an 11.5 boot. scarpas fit at 11.5, verticals I went with a 12. invernos did fit narrow, which was good, but the shell is high volume. liners fit me perfectly, but I could almost step the liners out of the shells. I went with the verts. mucho more flex and fit me well.
