Ok, I realize y'all can't solve problems over the internet, but I'm wondering what I'm not considering.
My right ankle bone -medial side, the largest protrusion keeps hitting the inside of the boot. At this point it's pretty much right at the very inside - highest point of the bone.
We've blown out the ankle, then ground some, and it still touches. Even in the shop, you could tell. So then we added a pad at the top of the cuff on the inside, medial. This has helped, changing it to a dull soft pain, but undoubtedly also changed my edging set up to give me more edge. Some people would probably still be screaming, but it's fairly normal since I had this issue with the last boot, and just lived with it.
Boots are Lange WC za plugs with lace up liner. Foot is 10.5 c/d, low instep, fairly skinny calf.
I've downsized this year to a 26 from my old 27 RL1? (2003) plug with Dobermann liner. I most wanted to get rid of excessive instep and calf room - the "Shankle" area. -shin/ankle. (The fact that I could even put on say an RS 130 size 26 in the shop with no work shows how much Lange has changed the interior.)
Yeah, the boots are snugly, but even in the old one I had this issue. I'm confident other room issues can be handled, but this ankle thing confounds me. Have only had a couple attempts so far.
I have new footbeds in them, instaprints made by the bootfitter.
Is it perhaps the foot collapsing and the ankle is always going in?
What should be the approach? Is padding the inside of the cuff not a good idea?
Will it snow in Tahoe??
