Please bear with me. I am neither expecting an online fit nor planning to foolishly purchase a boot online. I am currently skiing a boot that is too big, fitted by a local boot fitter with an excellent reputation, who refuses to admit that the boots are too big. He blames my "overly" mobile feet and keeps adding padding. The result is a Dalbello Kryzma 25.5 which is sloppy. I ski out of the heel cup and when I tighten down on the buckles have excruciating foot pain. This is enough of a problem, that I actually stopped mid run last week in Utah, released my skis, took off my boots and put them back on to reseat the heel in the cup.
I am about to start over with a new fitter who used to work at Footloose in Mammoth, is also highly recommended, and a pedorthist. However, like someone coming out of a relationship with a cheater, I am having trust issues. I just want to be sure that the boots the new guys is pulling for me to try are in the right ballpark.
Question: What are some narrow lasted boots for women?
I don't know my arch measurement, but I have been told that I do not have a high instep.
Left Foot stats: 249 mm with a 91 mm width
Right Foot stats: 245 mm with 93 mm width
I also have slender heels, ankles, and calves.
I am an advanced skier who likes performance, steeps, speed but avoids bumps at this point in my middle aged life. I ski off piste when conditions are good and when traveling to a big mountain. The majority of my skiing is in SoCal and (sigh!) on groomers.
If I walked into your shop, what boots would you pull off the shelf for me to try? Like I said, I'm not asking for the one "right" boot. I just want to make sure the new fitter is in the right ball park and not just selling me what he has in stock. If need be, I can make it through this season and start with next year's stock.
