Boots for skinny calves

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've tried about 20 different boots but none of them seem to work! I wear 25.0 boots (women's 8) but I'm very thin, so my calves never really fit the boots that work for my feet. I'm pretty much just making do for now, but as an advanced skier by the end of ski season my calves are usually bruised and that's no good. Do you have any suggestions for boots that might be able to fit me better?
Thanks

So your calves are bruised but not your shins.  Exactly what is happening to get your calves so aggressively against the back of the boots?  At least that is what I'm assuming is bruising them.

 

You could try Zipfit liners, but until I hear your answer to my question I'm thinking we should be talking about stance.

Sorry, in general my entire lower leg gets bruised, and when I'm talking about it with my family we just refer to that as my calves, but I guess it's would be more correct to say that both my calves and my shins get bruised

So shin bang is in general always caused by uneven pressure on the shins.  But the causes can be many.  There is a product that many shops will have called the eliminator if I remember right that can help.  It will fill up space and help even out pressure.  So will Booster straps especially worn between the shell and the tongue.  

 

But you are getting bruised front and back.  I still think stance is worth a look, but what is so unusual about your feet that you can't find a boot that works?

 

Ski boots don't come in size 8 they do however come correctly in size 25.  Is that the size you actually measure?  How wide is your foot when measured on a Brannock?

 

What boots have you been trying?  What boots do you own?
