Some background, I am having some problems with my boots, a couple months after being fitted. I have Lange RX 130's, 100mm last and they fit very well with some, but not extensive mods. I had my old Intuitions and footbeds recasted, so didn't use the stock liner at all. Now, it feels as though there is a lot of lateral play in the toe box area. My heel is still anchored well. I'm not sure if it's related to my liners being packed out or not. The other thought, is that these boots leak near the toe buckle. At first, a little condensation, now my feet are soaked after a day and I don't know how that affects the liners. I went to one boot shop here in Whistler and they said that the boots are too wide and recommended I get the Fischer Vacuum. I didn't. (An aside, there were four fitters there and each customer were being fitted with Fischer Vacuum boots. Just felt ike they were dumping inventory) On a recommendation, I went to another fitter and he said he thinks the boot is too narrow and my foot is cupped. They leak because I am not getting a flat seal. He measured my foot and at the widest it was 111mm. But, I have a narrow achilles and wide calf. If he were to have fit me, he would have recommended the Lange RX I have, Technica Demon or Nordica Firearrow to have the best initial fit.
His assessment makes sense, he was actually the only one that measured my foot width with calipers. The place I got them fitted did a shell fit first though and they seemed to fit great.
So, after all that, I do have questions. Although I'm not sure any can be answered here without seeing the boot. If they are in fact too narrow, can this be modified without compromising the integrity of the boot? This is the third time my liners have been casted and now they get soaking wet, is it a liner problem? If I were to get new boots, with a 111mm wide foot, what last should I consider? I haven't seen a boot wider than 107mm.
Thanks for your help.
