Pronounced ankle bones?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have one outer ankle bone that sticks out and is/was being pushed into the shell causing pain. A fitter at the mountain said my factory insoles were worthless (I agree) thus allowing my foot to collapse inward, pushing my ankle outward against the shell. This made total sense to me. We installed green super feet and I skied the next day with way more control and less discomfort. My ankle was still a tad angry from the day before so it was hard to tell if the problem was completely eliminated. I had iced it between getting the Superfeet and the next day's skiing. I headed home after that so I haven't been able to ski the boots sans angry ankle. On my next trip if the ankle flares again, what is the next step? I've seen C-shaped pads the go on the outside of the liner to isolate the ankle point, is this a good step or would you reco something else? Thanks.

"C" pads or get the shell made bigger on that spot.

 

one moves the foot away from the shell, and make the overall fit tighter.  The other moves the shell away from the foot, and makes the overall fit looser.

 

your goal is to have EVEN pressure allover your foot.
