How can I correct this?
Right now it seems like a higher volume insole would fill up some extra space and help get me locked in a little better. Could that be a possible solution?
5 possible ways to solve this, off the top of my head.
1. if there's room in the ankle/instep area, but the rest of the boot is snug, you can glue some material onto the top of the liner right where the bend is.
2. you can shim under the entire liner using something like bontex, a dense cardboardlike material. the downside to this, is it will lift your foot into a narrower part of the shell.
3. heel lifts will give you a little more room length wise and move your instep up a bit while leaving your forefoot where it was, but it will move your CoM forward.
4. Go to the bootfitter, and let him do it. Most decent bootfitters will include followup fitting with the purchase of the boot.
5. Take a lesson. and with proper technique, you won't fall into the backseat that causes your foot to go forward.
