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.
