Help: Haglund's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Has anybody had any luck having boots fitted for Haglund's (bony growth at the back of the heel)? I have been to good bootfitters (Elite Feet at Squaw), but I am still having problems.

Has anybody had any lucky having boots modified to accomidate the growth? What have you had done to your boots? FYI: Elite Feet did punch at the heel a little.

I am live in New Hampshire. If anybody in New England has found a bootfitter experienced with this problem, please offer a recommendation.

Boot: Diablo Race Pro Size 7.5
Street Shoe: 9-9.5

I have a pair of Tecnica Diablo Race boots and developed MAJOR pain while skiing this past season. I think the problem was partly aggrivated by the thick superfeet cork insole putting the top of my heel too high in the pocket and creating a preasure point. On the last day of the season I tossed out my superfeets and pulled a pair of super thin insoles from a pair of shoes. I actually made until lunch before the pain became intense (vs. 1 run).

Regardless, I need to have something done with my boots before this season. I needed over two months before I could even mountain bike because my heel had become so inflamed. During the last month, most of the pain and soreness has finally faded.

Thanks to all you respond.

Have you tried Green Mountain Orthodics at Stratton?

Bypass GMOL.. go to PJ/Todd at Racestocksports.com, Waterbury VT

Me: x-tra wide, bunoins, heel spurs, size 8.5-9 street shoe

My Dobermann WC 150 size 5!!!

Best fit ever, punches dont always work bc the plastic seeks to return to the original shape, these guys grind like gods & can also work on the liner. GMOL guys are good, but dont, compare in terms of skills level
