Best way to adjust cuff lean on own?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

If one is stuck with just him/herself and no qualified fitter is available, what is the best was to get one's cuff angle set correctly? Stand barefoot in front of a mirror on a hard floor, remove the liners and stand in the shell adjusting the lean until the calf is centered (saw that somewhere), other ideas? Thanks.

All the cuff alignment does is allow a rough centering (medial vs. lateral) of the lower leg into the boot shell. Your idea is fine, just be sure to put your footbeds into the empty shells before you slip into them. Your alignment will be pretty pretty much worthless without them.
