Weird problem here. I have a super low volume, narrow foot (measures 92) and a super low instep. Head , boots are the only ones that really lock down my heel as a result. I'm also right on the edge of 24 and 25 mondo sizes. (I wear a 39 in street shoes - women's sizing that is! lol).
I've got a Raptor Mya 110 (110 flex, 98 last/1800cc volume) in a 24 and a Raptor B5 RD (also 110 flex, junior quasi race boot, 95 last/1500cc volume) in a 25.
The Mya is pretty great except I feel like it could be tighter around the foot, heel, etc. by no means is it bad - my heel moves barely 1 mm if walking around the house - but I'm worried it'll pack out and be too loose. I'm sick of my heel flopping when skiing! And it's a bit short in the toebox, so I have squished toes, and before I switched to really thin socks, I was getting a bit of footbed cramping. The B5 RD is ok but a bit long and my heel moves around more as a result - clearly too big. I could order the B5 in a 24 but it would have to be shipped so was hoping to ask a few of you before I do anything!
- Any thoughts on how much the liners in either boot would pack out?
- Do y'all think the B5 in a 24 would be too small since it's 300ccs smaller than the Mya? I assume this would put my heel in place really well but probably would have even less room in the toebox, which would make being squished worse?
I'm going to see the bootfitter shortly, but he doesn't actually carry Head so just in case he doesn't know much about the liners etc.
