I was skiing this past weekend, and for the first time since I bought these boots 4 years ago (60-70 days of skiing), I had pretty significant inner left ankle pain. Up until this point, I never had any other problems. I guess in the past year, I feel like they've gotten slightly less responsive, maybe because they are a little bit roomier than they used to be, but this was never a big issue.
Anyway, I first noticed this pain earlier in the year, around the 4th day of 5 consecutive days of skiing. I figured it was just from a lot of skiing and pressure. However, this weekend, the pain was immediate from the first run. It really only hurts when I turn to the right, since I am putting pressure on my left ski and the inside of my left ankle presses up against the side of the boot. It's a pretty strong pain, not just discomfort, so that it sometimes affects my skiing and weighting, and also sometimes leaves me cringing by the end of a run.
With 60-70 days of wear on them, which seems like a little shorter than what I would have expected before I needed new boots, does it make sense to have them worked on? Maybe I just need new liners? If it's not a relatively simple fix in sight, I would rather spend my time and money just getting a new pair of boots, but don't want to break the bank if I don't have to.
If it helps, the boots are Nordica Speedmachine. Strap, liners, etc. are from the manufacturer, except the insole, which is semi-custom (heat molded, but not a true orthotic).
Thanks for your advice!
