I should have done a little more research on boot selection, but I am somewhat disappointed in the boot that I have, the Solomon Quest Access 80. I used to ski a used Nordica Grand Prix, and that boot, even used, felt more substantial than the quest access 80.
My biggest complaint is probably that the liner compresses a great deal. I feel myself having to re-strap down every so often because it becomes loose. Maybe I should be having to do this anyway? My ski style is all mountain (advanced), my foot size/width is 27.5, and normal width, not wide or narrow. I don't wear a molded insole, but it was my plan to get one, but I would rather have a solid boot first than dump money into it and still not be skiing in an optimal boot.
Any general suggestions on brands/models to step up from this heap? I know this is entirely subjective, but maybe there is a crowd favorite that everyone seems to love (kinda like how runners like the Nike Pegasus, year over year.)
