I need to get some new boots, the ones I have are too large and I want to get something that's "right".
I'm looking for some recommendations on where to start with boots. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of boot fitters around and I'm not sure the recommendations i'm getting are the best.
I picked up a pair of Lange XC100 based on a recommendation at the shop I went to and they seemed ok at the shop for the 15 minutes I had them on.. . .but after wearing them for 30 minutes at home, the little toe and the top of my foot started to ache, on both feet. Is this something that heat molding will fix or should I be looking at another boot?
Undoing the buckles on top the foot had little impact on the pain. Definitely not something i'd want to ski on.
The heel fit well.. which isn't something I've really had the pleasure of before.. unfortunately the rest of the foot doesn't fit so well.
Is there another boot i should be looking at? There is a 7 day return policy so i'll be going back on the weekend to try and find better boots but I want to be a bit more informed as to which ones might fit better than the rest. I know there is no magic bullet when it comes to this stuff, but any recommendations are appreciated.
I also tried on atomic hawk 110 and some nordica but the heel wasn't tight enough. If it makes a difference my feet are 26.5.
