Hi there. Fairly new around here, but I've made a few posts here and there.
I bought new boots this spring. They are exactly like these ones in size 25:
I tried to have them very carefully fitted this time (as compared to previous boot purchases). So far so good - I actually went down a whole size from my last pair (26 to 25). The boot guy threw in those superfeet liners for free - as a first step to see if they sufficed before moving to the custom foot beds. Then I had the front of the liner heat moulded (?) to accommodate this wide area or corn type bone beside by baby toe which always gives me grief. I was very happy with them in that respect when I used them for a multiple day ski trip over the March break - no more pain or bright red bumps on the sides of my feet. The only thing left to fine tune is the way they fit in the heel, as after skiing in them 4 or 5 times, I found my heel was not exactly held firmly in place a few times, especially in uneven terrain when your feet can get pushed around a little. I guess my problem seems to be I have a wide forefoot and a normal or smaller heel. I just wondered what can be done to accommodate that? The boot guy told me to keep coming back until they were perfect fit and that there were lots of other things he could do to adjust them if needed. So what can I expect could be done to make a snugger fit in the heel?
Thanks for your advice!
