Boot Issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am a new member that needs some advice.

I went skiing last weekend for the first time in about 8 years.....just like riding a bike! I had a huge issue with my boots. I used my equipment that I had 8 years ago...the boots felt fine at home but as soon as I got on the slopes they were rubbing extremely hard on my ankles. I actually had black and blue marks on my ankles from a full day of skiing. I chalked it up to the boots losing the contour of my foot but I am trying to figure out how to get the boots to fit comfortably again. The boots fit fine beside the ankle issue.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the help!

He's a master bootfitter - might have to wait a bit for him to answer, but probably worth it.

is the shell fit right (1-2cm behind the heel)

do you have a footbed other then the one that came with the boot?

my guess is the shell is too big and/or the foot is colapsing to the inside and hitting the side of the shell

if the shell fit is too big start with new boots in a smaller size

get the foot supported, then if needed make the shell bigger. Making more room in the shell first will make ankle hit the shell harder
