Not sure how I should title this thread ..
The forum has been kind enough to answer my questions, thank you.
1) As previous posts have stated I'm shopping for new boots. I've talked to 2 fitters and both are suggesting similar shells
( LANGE RS 120, Rossi all track , Salomon max 120, and one added a Delbelo model to look at. So far I've only had the Salomon on my foot so far).
Both have put me in a 26.5 (funny as I'm in a 27.5 currently which was fitted by one of the 2 I've seen) (cycling shoe size is a 43/43.5, street shoe 9-1/2 10)
In both cases when I'm asked - I mention that I get cold feet and currently run heaters (but are still cold when the temp is anywhere south of -5 C) . Both fitters have suggested Intuitions. One stocks them the other brings them in when needed and has limited experience with them as far as I can see.
In the opinion of the forum - has this become the cold feet fix? or a means of making a few extra bucks?
Should I get fitted with the OEM liner and then go with the aftermarket liner if I find I'm still cold or straight to the aftermarket liner?
(for clarity.. I have custom footbeds, thin socks and I change socks during the day)
2) Recently I found that I have issues with metatarsal and maybe this contributes to the cold feet (toes) As I've been reading I find that
footbeds can be made weight bearing, semi weight bearing and un-weighted. Would a footbed made by a podiatrist be a better bet and then taken to the boot fitter? Or should I ask the podiatrist what type I should be using (un-weighted etc) and then take that method to the fitter - assuming that they can do any of the three.
Any insight is greatly appreciated.
