Strolz and Daleboot are solutions!
I have had both in years past. Both companies will take care of you. My Daleboots (circa 1978) had minor annoying hardware problems, I learned to keep (like a Raichle guy
)spare parts. The Strolz were beefier, but heavy as hell back (1973)then. Things have changed, the Strolz is lighter, and I bet Daleboots are sturdier...
Both companies made me a boot that fit very well, and I was comfortable. YAY!
How wide is your foot, coldfeet? Personally, I go a solid EEE, with a huge instep. The foot is wide even past the midfoot twords the ankle. Then, to add to the fun and games I have a fairly narrow ankle and heel. Hobbit feet?
I'm on my last pair of (early 90's) Nordica GPV's - the high volume version of the "Benneton" colored yellow and green Grand Prix. This is one of the few boots "off the shelf", no stretching, that I've ever owned. Purchased multiple pairs, on sale, and now I'm on my last pair, 10 days. Been getting 350+ days out of them, padding things a bit twords the "end".
The others were Dachsteins, but the heel was a bit big.
