A new member but I promise I'm not gonna be a one post and run!!!
I am having real difficulties with boots - I have very narrow feet and had some Solomon boots that are 98 last but have so much volume. I have packed them out so much all around the ankle and Achilles. However they are still not great and I crank them so that they are super painful to fit.
Our local boot fitter has convinced me to get the Dalbello Lotus KR2 as they are meant to be super low volume and also stiffer due to the 3 piece. My Solomon's flex a lot at the bend of the boot and pinch my instep, although i do not realise that is happening I usually cannot feel my feet all day when skiing in the Solomon's. Therefore the 3 piece of the Dalbello is meant to be the best option. However I have tried them and there is still a hell of a lot of space in the heels and ankle, too much to be able to control skiing even with a footbed and some ankle spacers in them. Apparently this is the most low volume boot I can find?
I wanted to know whether the Dalbello is really a low volume boot. My roommate bought them 2 years ago and had to sell them because they are not high volume enough for her. Is it just false advertising by Dalbello that they are some of the lowest volume on the market.
I tried her intuition liner in the dalbellos and It improved things hugely. Is this the only answer for someone with extremely narrow ankles and heel, I have to have a high volume intuition liner to make any narrow boot work?
Does anyone know of a lower volume Womens boot with a stiffness of 100ish?
I have the option to return the Lotus
Thanks very very much for any help
