My boots are about 10 years old, but since I rarely ski more than 6 times a year I think they've probably been used under 100 times total. The heel area is beginning to get loose. I can lift my heel in the boot a little when standing. When skiing and I hit a bump, I feel like I'm gonna pop out of my boots. I've tried lift inserts and didn't like them, they threw off my balance, although they did tighten the heel pocket. If I clamp the boots tighter, it makes no difference, I can still lift my heel, only makes my feet colder. Heavier socks work somewhat. What are my other options to tighten up the heel? These boots are extremely comfortable, never a pinch or any other discomfort, and the shells are in great shape. What are the other things a bootfitter could do to tighten up the heel area? What about replacement liners like Zipfits?
