Do racing boots have a smaller cuff than all mountain boots both on out shell and liner??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am interested in a pair of racing boots Salomon 120.

 

but my calf is a little fat . everyday after skiing , the front side of calf bone ( about 3 cm above ankle) is painful and may appear bruises on that point.

 

 

So i am just wondering whether  racing boots have a smaller cuff than non-racing boots both out and inner shell.

 

thanks.

In general race boots are smaller everywhere than lower level recreational models but it doesn't necessarily mean they will be more painful.  The lower volume may distribute pressure better and the stiffer padding may provide more protection.  Notice I said "may" and not "will".  Best thing is to try some on and see how it goes.

 

I notice you aren't exactly "from around here" so can't comment on the difficulties of my solution.
