Actually, what I do is destined for success.
When I have problems with my feet, such as morton's neuroma, I make a pad for the bottom of my foot, and ski without pain.
When a doctor operated on my knee, and THEN told me I should never do anything with more impact than swimming and treadmills, i waited 6 months and started jogging. Then skating, Then skiing.
I've skied 10 seasons since then, ignoring what Dr Filth told me to do.
Oddly, when I used to tape padding around my heel and other trouble spots on my foot, I had no trouble getting my boots on, but now there's friction in the liner, from years of wear, which is keeping my sock from sliding in, without any of the padding I used to use.
I buy what I buy, make it work, ski very well, and don't give any more money to the arrogant parasites working as bootfitters in the New York City and Hunter Mtn areas.
Obviously, bootfitters should be licensed and regulated by a government agency, like people who make dentures, to protect customers from crooks and incompetents.
