Hi guys, i'm trying to decide between doing some work to my Dalbello Krypton Cross boots or buying something else. I'm a very high level skier, and yet somehow I know nothing about boots. About the only thing I like about these boots is the heel retention. I find the Kryptons pack out during the day and i'm having to tighten to the point of pressure points on the bottom 2 buckles. This also results in losing pretty much all flexibility in the boot. At the top end the tongue comes up too high and is way too stiff taking away from agility. I honestly don't even do up the top buckle unless i'm doing something really reckless. It should be noted that I have always preferred a flexible fit around the shins and ankles, and a tight fit around my foot. Are these too many issues to bother with, or is there a different liner or mods to do that could get this boot to where I need it to be? My feet are very skinny, 3 1/2 inches at the widest point.
I'm wondering what can be done to fix these issues, or if there's a better boot I could be in. I am a freeride skier and I do require a lot from my boot as i'm quite aggressive, but I also go nut around with friends that are just learning so I need something that can do it all. Other than fit, my main concerns are flexibility in the shin, comfort, and the lighter the better.
Thanks to any who take the time to help me out.
