Hi been a lurker on the forum for a few weeks and have been reading up a lot on boots. I have always had a rough time with fitting boots and getting one Im happy with. First off I measure at 26.5 MP and have about a 105mm forefoot, but have a very skinny leg/ankle I weigh 150lbs and am 5'11/6'0 . I have had boots fit at surefoot in the past which were great for 2 years but I have progressed out of them and am needing something a little more, gone through salomon ghost and x max 120s. I am a super aggressive skier, I have competed nationally in slopestyle and big mountain comps around north America. I ski lots of pow and am touring in a rossi alltrack. I had a blown knee last year so this year is a bit of recovery and getting back to where I was and I want my boot to help me stay on line and have the best alignment to keep me charging.
So this year I ended up in the rx 130 (wide) 100mm. I was in love standing in them in the shop, the heel hold was awesome, no pain anywhere and I was in the 25.5 a size smaller than what I measure. I have a good performance fit, barely get a finer in behind, but my toes are great skiing and have only had a few toe bangs on deep landings on jumps and landing a little backseat, I haven't done anywork to them yet. I am now proly 10 days in on the stock liners and have noticed my heel has gained some movement and I have had to tighten the buckles down a bit more. I took off the standard booster and added my own WC booster that I use with my other boots which helps a bit but still want that more secure, snug ankle hold. I do feel like there is a tad of room in the top of my foot/shin. and I do have some shin eliminators I could try. Another option I have is I got some sidas v2 high liners, that I have molded for my rx130s just haven't skied them yet. I noticed they didn't feel as good in the heel as the stock liners were out of the box. I basically just wondering if I am in the right boot, or if theres anything else I can do. I have a custom footbed and all that as well.
sorry for jumping around, first post here, just getting a feel for it.
thanks in advance
