Lange XT 100

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm on my third season with 2014 Lange XT boots: white with orange and back trim (and some translucent gray at the shin).  I've had trouble with fit, and have taken them back to my LSS where I bought them 7-8 times for "tweaking".  The store's work on them improved the fit, but they still hurt on a few places, like: my right big toe and right outer heel, my left foot ankle bone, etc.  Also putting them on and taking them off causes over-the-top cursing (by me).  On the other hand, I do love the way they ski -- a smooth spectrum of control.  

 

Questions:  Lange supposedly redesigned the XT this year, I think to make them more "flexible".  Should I try the 2016 XT 100?  Should I consider the XC 100, which is a bit wider?  Some other brand?  Or, since I haven't gotten the full life out of the ones I have, should I just ignore the pain and enjoy the skiing?

 

Thoughts?  Thanks!

maybe see if another boot fitter can help you?   yes, you might pay for the work, but cheaper then a new boot?

if not dump them, and start fresh,  no need to get your moneys worth of suffering out of them

Thanks.  Two good thoughts: 

 

1. Paying a new boot fitter would be, say, $30-$50?  So worth a try.  

 

2. Dumping them and starting fresh -- you correctly read my instinct to try to amortize these boots before moving on.  But, you're right, (skiing) life is too short.
