Hello boot guy, I have been skiing on my new Garmont Asylum boots with alpine soles for two days now and my knees and thighs are fried! I bought these boots because of their comfort on the foot and I continue to be happy about my purchase for that reason. But I feel the stance pushes my knees way too forward and that I can never achieve an upright stance - I.e. my things are always engaged. I am not all that strong and feel this is resulting in muscle strain and I am afraid i may blow out my knees. Perhaps I bought too aggressive of a boot? I do tend to crouch and I think this is even more so the case with these boots. note that i have already adjusted the forward lean on these boots to a more upright position. They may have a little play left in this regard, but not much. The boots otherwise feel great while I am skiing and I otherwise feel they are improving my skiing. I am an intermediate-advanced skier of small build (127 lbs). I have been skiing for 20 years and never experienced this! I am skiing K2 Sidkicks, which are new as well. Any advice/ insights would be appreciated!
