Lange RS 130 wide - tight heel

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

I own Lange RS 130 wide. Skied more than 15 times with them, but still feeling of excessive pressure around my heel. And the feeling is, I would say not like a pressure rather painful rubbing when I ski.  I’ve read about the model and understood – this is “by design” – it’s called “anatomical padding” (correct me if I'm wrong). I visited a bootfitter, the guy has done a lot, but still this pressure. Should I stay and wait for the liner will form around my heel, or to go again to the bootfitter. Any other advises regarding these boots are welcomed. Thank you.

better or worse with a heel lift in, or without a footbed at all?  (just talking about the heel issue, not the rest of the foot)

 

has it gotten any better over 15 days?

 

heated up the liner and stretch it out a bit?

 

if not, punch or grind the shell

Thanks for the answers. I’ve tried different socks – the best is with the tinniest, but still too tight. No difference with or without footbed. The problem is definitely in the liner – that additional padding around the heel. I was advised to cut the liner and remove it, but the boots are still new. How exactly to stretch the liner with heating in this case ?

I stretch a liner with the same tools as I work on shells....
