Could you (or someone else) elaborate? I don't understand how you could experience heel movement when standing in your boots but none when skiing. I experience the opposite of what you describe (heel lift while skiing) and am looking to correct. Just purchased some new Superfeet corks which I hope will at least help the problem.

Good catch Gonzo, and you're right. Hell, my boots fit like my feet were poured in, but I can still move my heel up and down slightly when standing in them. When I'm skiing...not a budge.
My point is that even with a boot that securely fits the heel area, I can while standing, slightly raise and lower my heel if I attempt to. I know of no skiing movement in which I would attempt to replicate this movement and it doesn't budge when I ski.
My guess is that your boots don't fit correctly in the heel area and that's why you're getting heel movement while skiing. I'm not familier with the Superfeet footbeds, but if they don't wrap your heel some, to eat up some of the excess room, they probably won't help in this regard.
BTW, when I bought my boots, I sought out the brand that most securely held my heel in place as I had this problem in my prior boots.
