No hope for my feet?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 



I am writing here because I am a little bit desperate about my boots. 


I skied six seasons on Lange WC's, with the old shell. They were alright. Recently I changed to some RS hoping that they would be similar and I wasn't very careful with the fit, so I bought the wrong thing, which I am selling here. Apparently, the fit is totally different to what they used to be :(


I have been visiting several bootfitters and it seems that my feet are difficult. My ankle is super narrow and it is difficult to find boots with good support there. 


When I visited one of the best bootfitters in UT, he told me that things will always be difficult with my feet.


I ended up trying some Fischer vacuum fit (too expensive) and he also gave me to try some Salomon X-max 120. They feel snug, kind of, but I am afraid that even with bootwork, they will pack out and become too wide for me. These boots were pretty much the closest thing I will get to a good fit, according to him. 


Any ideas? Good experiences with the boot? Should I look for something else?

Everybody makes 95mm boots or narrower.  Find some and give them a try.

Today tried some Nordica Patrons at another bootfitter. I think the 110 flex model kind of will fit me. 


Also, they told me that it is similar to the Tecnica R9.5, this one seems to be a 95mm last boot, the other one 98mm. 


Still could go narrower, but.. well. 


Does anybody know about these boots?

patrons are 98mm (med to narrow).  as talked about LOTS of other boots that are narrower still.


but if they fit, then that is great.
