I recently went and got a pair of custom boots made at surefoot - Lange Exclusive 100 shell. They were so painful and put so much pressure on the sixth toe and outer side of the foot. After 3 trips back to Surefoot (and 3 ski days ruined causing me to rent at Mammoth, Deer Valley and Canyons), to make adjustments to grind out, punch out the sixth toe area and to thin out the foam in the area, it's still extremely painful. I've given up hope to having these workout, and am now wondering why I was put in a boot that has a 98mm last - vs another boot w/ 100mm or higher. Not sure if I should continue working with them or demand a refund and go elsewhere to get a boot fitted. Further, do I trust that they can make the custom boot fitting process work for me?
I've done some research about wider boots but not many stores locally carry these boots for me to try on.
