Scalce, my concern with the boots she has is the shape of the heel pocket. Is the shell's heel pocket relatively close to the shape of her heel? If not, the boot will never fit right.
Interestingly, I had a similar problem with some men's X Waves a number of years ago. I didn't know then what I know now, but the fitter recommended them. Of course, the heel pocket in the shell was huge
I am now at the opposite end of that spectrum with the Tecnica XTs. I had no idea that there were shells that I could use that would feet my feet as closely as these boots do. You might need to consider that.
