Got some new boots fitted today from a well regarded fitter in London.
I tried the boots on again at home for a couple of hours and there is a noticeable feel difference between the left and right. The right fits nd feels like a good performance fit. The shell fit was good and the fitter had to soften the outside of the boot to create a bit of space. It's snug and feels like it solidly holds the foot.
However, my left foot is a half mondo size smaller than my right making things a bit different.
The left foot feels almost too comfortable, it's firm, it would hold my foot while skiing, but I am worried that after 30 or ski days, it is going to become too roomy. Can this be firmed up by a fitter or is my only option to go with a custom liner that fits it better? I think it needs a bit of firming up around the ankle but in general the overall room doesn;t feel quite as performance fit as the rightside boot.
I can of course take it back and get adjustments but I'm just wondering what adjustments could be made short of putting in foam padding on certain areas of the liner, whivch ultimately will become less effective after a while of compression.
I could also do the left up tighter! ;) However, it was my understanding that good fitting new boots would barely need to be tightened on the buckles much and should almost just hold the foot firmly at the loosest buckle setting.
