    I recommend trying on some Aoens before you buy them, if possible.
    The ankle/cuff/cuff bolt area is terrible, according to my feet.
    Thanks for that video. I am not sure if I'd try the size 40, but it might work for me. The shop is in Beijing and I am in Shenzhen (China), so no chance to try them on. We only have a scooter shop and a skateboard shop here. The blade shop closed down this week, and they only sold rec and freeskates.

    Hope that helps.
    That's good news that a bigger liner helps. I will keep that in mind. Thank you.

    Sizing of USD Aeon shells? Any Aeon riders opinion?

    Hey brahs,

    Useless backstory that can be skipped: I didn't skate for a while and then got back into it with some cheap freeskates with 72mm wheels. Once I made the setup flat (since modern FSK are rockered for slalom and dancing), they've been fantastic for what they are (riding around, jumping stuff, doing some skate lines, wheelies, basic height gaps).
    While I really enjoy these skates, my body is telling me I need to grind, and my feet and back are complaining when I jump anything bigger than a three-stair gap. The skates have no heel for grinds and Makios are easy to slip off. I keep wanting to try gaps, but bigger gaps are difficult to land because they hurt so much, and my legs blow out trying to compensate. I've been thinking about the Lomax Aeons because for the price and wheel size in the online shops where I live, those are the best deal compare to all other aggressive skates sold (huge tax markup due to imports). The 72mm Aeons seem interesting, but are $120 more than the Lomax skates where I live, so I'm not too attracted to them.

    Actual question: The online skate shop says the shell sizes are - "?39-40??41-42??43-44??45-46?" and I am a 41 (US size in all skates, but have never liked shells that share sizes like that due to feel and look. I am considering a size 40/ 7.5 shell.
    Would a 40 be too small for me? My feet are wide, but I've never had a problem with any size 8/41 shell, even true-to-size (though I never used Majestic 12s or Valo). I remember I could fit into a size 7 Razor Genesis boot due to how wide they were.

    Would you consider the Aeon's a "normal" size width, or maybe wider, or what?
