I recently decided to acquire a stiffer boot for this season, from 110 flex to 130. At a recent ski swap I picked up a new pair of Tecnica Inferno R130 boots, these are the 2011/12 model, in bright orange. I believe these are a plug, 95mm last, they had never been skiied, but I could see they had previously been worked on in the sixth toe area and in the Ankle. I typically need work done in the same areas, and the boot seemed to fit pretty well, so I pulled the trigger. However, I do have one concern, I noticed that I get some heel lift when flexing/walking in these boots. I have custom footbeds, so I'm wondering what else could be done to secure my heel a bit better, or whether I should ditch the boots and move on. These have the thin lace up liner, so I'm also wondering if getting a slightly thicker liner would help. I'm planning on seeing a bootfitter, but am open to any suggestions.
And yes, the boots are sized correctly, I don't think I could go any smaller without crushing my toes.
