I love my boots. However, my left foot is slightly longer than my right foot so when I'm in the bumps, my toes are hitting the front of the boot for my left foot. After 4-5 hours of skiing, my toes are in tremendous pain. Any idea how much room they can grind out? Thanks.
What can be done with my Dodge boots?
not a lot (if you can grind it at all) i have only seen a couple of them this side of the pond..carbon fibre isn't it? and really thin/lighgt wouldn't think that grinds very well
edit, there you go, see jim's post above (crossed on the web)
being honest, you can't change it a lot... maybe a pad on the tongue to hold the foot back better and a really good footbed to make your foot more stable but without seeing how much space you have there and the structure of your foot it is difficult to say, what does the guy who sold you them say?
He says we can open up some room in the toe box without a problem. I didn't actually ask what he meant by opening it up. I assumed it meant to grind. He also suggested the footbed to keep my foot in place. I'm going in on Thursday so I'll let you know what happens.
Not true. There is about 5-6 mm of plastic on the inside of the toe area. I had that ground out and it helped. I also had the area on the outside of the toe stretched as well. My boot is now more comfortable. It needs to be stretched (or whatever term you use for a carbon fiber boot) some more but I'll wait until the season is over. They are certainly more comfortable now than they were before and that's what is important now.
