Having learnt somewhat from that lesson I picked up a pair of Atomic M110 boots in Austria last winter and they are a much better fit, and heat shaped with stock liners. Within the 3mm (I think) side to side (but not brushing the sides of my feet as might be ideal) and perfect fore aft behind the heel. I have got 4 solid days with about 40,000 ft vertical drop on them, comfortable with no real issues, no heel lift, other than a tad too flexy compared with my ideal boot, but no problem considering I had years of rentals due to living too far from the mountains. I wanted some even lower volume boots, but didn't have the money, but was stuck because rentals were huge. My feet are approx 29.2cm x 100mm. I'm 6ft and 85kg (187 lbs).
My issue is this my feet seem uber low volume and the boots I think although use-able are still just a bit too big. Could I get away with a 5mm volume reducing foot bed or is that just putting a band-aid on when I really need stitches? I'm upping my paltry week to ten days a year (love to do more but can't) so I could save up for race boots for next season. Is that a worthwhile investment or are there other reasonably priced low volume boots or are there other boot mod options that are worth a try? Are race boots even the right boot given my level of experience?
Many thanks in advance!
