I've been skiing in in Head World Cup boots with Zipfit liners for a long time, 8yrs. Last season I put a 4mm shim under my toe piece to change my stance. My skis are Icelantic Shamans that have a serious amount of sidecut. I really liked how everything felt more upright and balanced fore and aft. Before it felt old school with a lot of pressure on the tips. That made me think it is time to get new boots to work with the new style side cuts and flex patterns. I ski mostly off piste at Mammoth Mtn. After 40 years of over lap 4 buckle boot how is a 3 piece boot going to feel in comparison? I have high volume feet and a EE width according to the guys at Footloose Sports. I saw that Head has a new boot out called the Hammer that might work for me according the volume measurements on their website. I'm partial to the Head boots after so many years of comfort. I know I have to try different boots for fit. It's like eating steak for years and now I have to eat fish. What's it going to taste like?
