fitter and I cant come to an agreement on boot size

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I got boots after having about total of 15 days on snow! They felt pretty good by the end of that season and beginning of last season, but as I ski faster and more aggressive I see my boots lacking control and performance. 

 

Now the problem is that I think my boots are too big, I don't feel my heel locked in place. I have about 1" of shell fitting behind my heel. My fitter says I only need a punch around the ankle bone area to put my heel in place, but I don't believe that's going to give me a snug fit around the heel and throughout the whole feet. I have a small feet, around 24cm long and I'm on a shell 25.5/100 last. 295mm boot length.

 

I got custom footbeds before this season, they helped a bit, but haven't and probably won't fix the problem. Usually my boots are either too tight or not snug enough, I have all signs that my boots are too big but fittes insist they are the correct size.

 

He also recommended some intuition pro tongue, but I don't wanna do that because I'm pretty sure my shell is just too big and I should be on a size 24 at least.

 

My question seems to have a pretty obvious answer, should I look for another fitter? Or is there something I'm missing...

you need BOTH a smaller shell and a different boot fitter.
