Moving Tongue?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My wife has small feet  (about a size 6.5) but good sized calfs.  The boots were fitted by one of the best boot shops (Start Haus) but wanted to cast a wider net for other opinions.  She just came off of a Nordica Doberman Jr Race Boot with a Booster Strap added. While skiing the boot cuff would slip to the outside (lateral).  She just got new boots, Nordica Doberman Spitfire 100 and transferred the Booster strap.  In the four days she has been skiing them, she mentioned the same problem of the tongue shifting.  Has anyone else heard of this?

 

I welcome any thought or sugestions for stopping the wagging tongue of the Dobermans.

could be a problem with the calf's leaning back against the shell unloading the tongue----since the tongue is moving laterally---might indicate the leg is also moving medially during turns which would open up the lateral side of the liner allowing the tongue to move over into the open space.

 

look at the forward lean of the boot (combined with the calf size) it may be pushing her leg too far forward causing a sitting back position some times viewed as a low athletic stance.  pressure on calf muscle?   a fitter can change the forward lean of a boot----calf size, not so muchcool.gif.

also check the footbed, and the boots cuff alignment,   If her legs are knocked need (or the large part of her calf on the mediial side) this might just push the tongue to the outside?
