Question on new Ski Boots...
I just bought some beautiful Green Scarpa GEA's, fit great with nice control, only problem is the severe calf pain I get when I ski! It hurts most when I am standing in line or have stopped, not so much when I ski. Additionally, quads are burning too! I have limited flexibility and forward lean is my enemy, but at 13 degree's I am surprised I am getting this pain. I am not a hard charger - 5'6", 115lbs and and stick in the in bounds (for the most part) and have only felt this type of pain previously when trying the Fischer Vacuum's earlier this year (I felt the pain from extreme forward lean just standing in the parking lot, result of poor boot fitting).
Any thoughts? I really want to keep this boot, its the only boot I have found that doesn't kill my instep (very high arch and narrow foot have always presented me with boot fitting problems).
Am I too back seat?
Is the boot too low or high on my calf? (I do have short legs, height in all in the torso).
Buckling too tight?
I am stretching...so I don't believe it could be that.
Help is greatly appreciated! I love my set up and want to keep it - dynafit's, Atomic Century, GEA's...so nice!
FYI - I do tend to be pigeon toed, so I have the canting on the right foot at +2 and the left foot at +1.
