OK. I have come here to see if any one can help me sort my boots out.
I have a pair of Tecnic inferno fling boots bought new beginning of December. I have had a load of issues with them not fitting i have very skinny heels and ankles but also a low instep. The store which i bought them though has messed me about to no end (fitted me into the wrong boots when i was advised they where the boots for me, poor customers service etc.) but i do get free adjustment with them. However on my umpteenth visit they have reached the point where they have said that they don't think they will be able to do any more and i need custom liners. Being a ski instructor this is currently not a financial option! An going for my level 3 this winter i could do with boots that fit.
So the problem:
I am unable to get my boots tight enough around my ankle and heel which results in me having significant heel lift and slip forwards and backwards. I already have additional padding on both liners around my ankle bones on both sides. I did have heel lifts in on top of having a full board insole which goes under the custom cork liners to try and help boost me into up in my boots, but the heel lifts made me loose the feeling in my toes and didn't really help with the problem.
I currently have a really big bag of kids craft foam and a role of electrical tape and now my liners look a bit like Lego! I have tried a few things and I can get the boot to fit better but I as yet have not managed to pin my ankle and heel into the boot, any suggestions?
This picture is what the store did to my boots (right linner pictured). Both side of my ankle both liners, the bits where there is pen is where they have punched out my boots.
This is my effort, which is on the inside of my left liner!! I have also tried padding out the tongue but this didn't really do much so has been taken out.
