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?
