I took them to Larry's in Boulder today hoping they could do some work on them and when they took them apart we discovered a large piece of plastic broken off the back of the cuff but held in place by the liner. Based on that I've decided to suck it up and get new boots. They have recommended the Dalbello Kyra 95 ID. I'm an advanced skier with wide feet and large calves who likes all terrain. I've been held back the last couple of years by the boot issues. First I put on the 24 size and was shocked at the room but nice my toes didn't the front of the boot he moved me to a 23. I wear 9 street shoe although 8.5 works in a wider shoe.
My question is, does this sound reasonable? This type of boot (three buckle, cabrio design) is all new to this former racer and ski race coach. I am eager to see what the included Intuition liner does for me. Would you recommend anything else I should look at or ask about?
