Got a pair of Fischer Vacuum 130s, 27.5, everything is mostly working fine in them after I got Intuitions and baked them, with one minor exception: my left foot is slightly longer than my right, due to the big toe. Molded shell length is ok, but am wondering about the height in the left toe box. Should I have enough wiggle room to raise my big toe up a bit, or should it feel snug down into place?
Reason I'm asking is last year I had an "almost wipeout" and recovered before actually falling, but in the process I banged my left toe inside the boot so hard that it warped my toenail and it's taken a full year for my toenail to grow back properly. And now I'm a bit nervous for this season, to be honest.
So I am wondering if I should have the boot punched up a bit in the left toe box to provide for slightly more vertical room to avoid toe bang, or if it should actually be more snug to "lock" my big toe down into place?
Any thoughts/comments/experience would be greatly appreciated.
