I was reading the post from a woman having issues with her Tecnica junior boots and wanted to add a comment and ask a question.
I have the older Tecnica Diablo version of this Junior race boot in a 21. (my street shoe is a 5.5 or 6) Best fitting boot I have found and have not tried others. The BSL is truly an adult length fitting well into most bindings, and with some skilled adjustment CAN be adapted to some of those system bindings if you want to be out on the hill demoing for a day on skis set up with those bindings.
Having said this, it would be great to know that I will not be forever stuck with the Orange flames should manufacturers find sufficient value in creating options for smaller ladies feet. Looks like progress is being made(?)
My question: After 4 years of skiing in these boots--- 2 separate pairs---I cannot get them buckled tight enough to feel snug as I'd like. My sense is that the liners are ready to go, but I should probably hang onto the shells due to few options for replacement.
Would a ZipFit work in this particular boot? My feet have been getting cold with the tight buckles, not to mention numb over the navicular through July post season.
I am 92 pounds and 5'2", advanced intermediate. Not a powder hound or freeskier. Speed is my enjoyment when the runs are pretty clear, otherwise I tend to practice bumps or work through chop hoping to progress in that department.
Any suggestions for the boot problem?
