Will time fix this or do I need professional assistance

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I recently purchased a pair of 2008 Tecnica Diablo flame boots in a 27. They fit very securely and I have definitely seen Improvements in my skiing since using these. My only gripe is that after half a day skiing my little toes (pinky toe) starts to feel uncomfortable as if there is not enough room in the boot; I have only used these for four days so far and it I am wondering if this should resolve on it's own due to the liners packing out slightly. Or do i need to seek out a bootfitter in my area for an adjustment. Any help would be appreciated. BTW I am using thin merlino wool ski socks and I have not had any other issues with these boots, my feet remain warm and feel very secure in these boots.

is it better after day 4, or worse?   if better, odds are it will keep getting better,  if not, see someone to add volume to the shell

You don't say what size you measure, only what size you purchased.  What does your foot measure in U.S. sizes?

It has definitely been getting better as the days go. I still feel it but definitely later in the day. Of those four days only one was spent skiing difficult terrain at high speeds as the other days I was with my wife and daughter on blues and greens. I am about a 10 or 10 1/2 US depending on the shoe. Also I did not have the liner preheated or anything figuring skiing in it would have the same  result. I guess I am wondering how long in general it takes to "break in" a new boot.
