The 495 boot comes in a 'combo' fit- D/B which means a wider D width for the ball of your foot with a narrower B heel for a better fit for women or the B/AA fit for really narrow feet. This product is for the D/B version. Email me if you want me to get in the B/AA version for you

These boots are soft toed and are meant to fit like a glove with the toes barely touching the front.

See the video below from Riedell for more info on the 495 boot.

Please don't assume that if you wear a size in one brand that the sizing will be the same in another brand as they do differ. In fact, sizing differs between brands with different skates. Please check the size charts.

The 495 boot has heat moldable reinforcements. Follow the instructions below to heat mold your boots:
Depending on how you want your boots to fit, there are two options for heat molding the counters and toe area.
Option 1 Heat Gun or Hair Dryer.
(Hairdryer will take more time to heat mold material).
This option is for the individual problem areas (toes, arch, outer foot), and lets you mold one section at a time. Keep the gun/dryer at approx 6-8 inches away from boot, moving in a circular pattern. This should take about 3 min. with the heat gun (6 to 7 min. with hairdryer). Once the material is pliable, use your hands to push out the problem spot, and hold until cool. This process can be repeated as many times as needed.
Option 2 - Oven.
This Option allows you to mold all three spots at once. Mold one boot at a time.
Pre-heat oven to lowest setting (79-93 degrees Celcius depending on type of oven, DO NOT EXCEED 93 DEGREES OR TIME IN OVEN). Remove sock liner/foot bed, laces, toe stops, wheels and bearings (cushions can be left on). Place boot/skate in oven, on rack or cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Remove boot (careful, boot will be HOT). Insert sock liner/foot bed, place foot in boot and lace up (be sure to wear the socks you tend to skate in the most). Stand up in boots and wait until cool. If you have a specific hot spot, use your hands to push the spot out or in for the desired fit. This process can be repeated as many times as needed.
