I have protrusions on the outside of each lower heel where the Achilles connects to the heel. I get rubbing there and on this trip actually broke the skin open on both. Boots are ATomic RT 26 shell wear an 11 shoe . Have Harb footbeds soles canted I think I am good with this. MAybe you can get a finger behind the heel with foot in the shell .I can not believe I could down size further. Anyway thought I needed a punch on both boots so I could elevate the rubbing at the heel. Went in to see a filter last night here at Vail and he told me no way after shell fitting me that a punch would be a solution. TOld me I had a tight fit but my foot was sliding in the boot due to my skinny chicken legs. HE said he had the same issue .HE installed pads on the front cuff of the liners to push me further back in the boot. WIll ski the boots this morning and hopefully this helps I have the Booster straps on the boots. I do not buckle the top buckle all that tight just snug and use the BOoster to pull the tongue in a bit more. Anyway I thought the foot sliding reasoning inn a tight fitting boot was counter intuitive to me but the skinny lower leg cause in my case I believe has merit. He also commented the heel pocket in the RT boot was a bit roomy compared to some other models Wondered what you guys think of this solution THanks.
