I recently purchased a pair of Dalbello Scorpion SR 130 boots. I went to the best bootfitting shop in my area- tried on lots of boots ect, and this is what was recommended to me.
Previously I was in a Nordica Supercharger Hot Rod- so both boots are a 98mm last. On the new pair I have downsized to 26 from a 27. One of my feet is bigger than the other, and the 27 was simply too big for that foot. I will not be going back to the shop which I bought the old ones from.
I have quite a wide foot, narrow heel, and high-ish instep. To get the flex, and fit, and heel hold I wanted, the boot fitter said the best thing was to get the flex & heel hold, then punch out for the wider foot.
I have taken them in a few times to get the punch right- just making small changes each time. That now all seems good most of the time. When I am walking around, or just skiing groomers they feel awesome. However when skiing off piste, bumps, ect or need to make fast movements, my foot can sometimes hurt like hell. I tend to feel this all over, including the area which has been punched.
I dont really understand why it would feel good walking around & on groomed, but not on the terrain described above. Any ideas? I know when I first got them they were pretty tight around the instep, but don't really notice that now that the liner has packed out a bit.
Thanks for any advice.
