Also, my boots used to have canted soles because a former bootfitter decided to address my A frame that way, but then they were planed flat when it was determined that the canting was not helping my stance. The planing has resulted in the bottoms of my boots (specifically the right one) not being completely flat; it rocks from side to side a bit. This is also the side where my foot is on the inside edge more.
I have a bootfitter here in PA whom I like very much and who will do anything to make things work. He's great at fitting but he is not an alignment master which is why I had my footbeds made elsewhere. He says that the un-flat boots may be contributing to my riding my inside edge and that new shells would help a lot. I tend to agree, but I also think that the cuff alignment, or lack thereof, on my Langes is a bigger issue: With my curved tibia, I don't think I can get the cuff adjusted at the correct angle so my leg is centered inside.
My bootfitter told me that next year, he would be set up to do Fischer Vacuum boots and I should wait till then and that will take care of my narrow feet AND cuff issue. After reading a bunch of threads, I'm not sure the Vacuum boots are the ticket, and I am not sure I want him to mold the boots if he doesn't have that much experience with the Fischers. I need a race boot for my narrow feet, and I want a race boot.
So, here's my question: Would Fischer Vacuum boots mold the cuffs so they would fit my curved tibias and would they work for my very narrow feet? Or would I be better off with a standard race boot or plug boot? What boots have good bilateral cuff adjustment? I was looking at the Head Raptor line....is this a possibility? My bootfitter doesn't have race boots in stock but he does sell them and can get boots in that I'd like to try. What do you all suggest?
