I'd like boots which are significantly more upright than anything on the market with my huge calves in the boots. I'd like a heel pocket which gives me more room above the back of my heel with a lot of heel lift to open up my ankle. I also think I'd like a sole aligned more like the Fischer boots, but I haven't skied a pair of them yet, so there is no way to tell other than to fit a pair of Fischers and find out. The Flexon/Krypton design also looks appealing, but I would really have to have a pair of those boots set up very carefully not to put me too far forward. I was most interested in the underlying question, though, because I know a lot of people (relatively speaking) make their own skis or snowboards, but Ihad never heard of anyone making his or her own boots. I know that never having heard of something does not mean it does not exist, so I thought I'd post the question.
maybe a second question should be what does it take to set up a boot production line. I hear enough grousing about boots not doing what we want to think that someone might be able to do better if small scale is proactical.
