Something does not compute here....... Try restarting
First, the Krypton (regardless of liner chosen) is not particularly low volume in the heel to ankle circumference. IF
you have an ankle thickness like a soda straw, this is just the wrong boot. See pics below I dont think I have soda straw thickness
Second, you are complaining about loss of circulation and pain and they can often be mutually exclusive. When you complain about ankle pain...do you mean the lateral (outside) ankle? Is your entire foot numb? or is it just pain on the ankle?? The Krypton as issued in '07 often has a need for some work to create an ankle pocket. (It doesn't really have one) This is especially so on the lateral side. This is not difficult but will require some work on the shell first, then the liner will have to be shaped to coincide with the modified shell.I dont have ankle pain, it cuts of circulation at my ankle causing slowly building excruciating (and that term is NOT being used lightly) pain starting in under the arch of my foot slowly spreading to each corner toe to ankle. This process starts slowly not noticable for the first 5 minutes but by 15 minutes my entire foot will fill as if it is burning in agony. Re: Ankle pocket work, If I did more work on creating an ankle pocket I wouldnt have any shell left. The ankle pocket is there and fits perfect. It is just this cable buckle
Pictures, I hope they help:Welcome to my boots aka Hell
Let me take you some of the basic components of hell in attempt to create heaven.
Drive Plate was added to combat the same problem that is happening with the lower buckle when it happend with the upper buckle. Upper buckle was cutting off circulation due to it needing to be too tight. Add Drive plate, take up volume viola, huge improvement
WC Booster Strap. Not sure what this does but when I added it also huge very noticable improvement so I use it
Different colored buckles: I have broken 5 so far, it has been suggested that this is because I am cranking them down too hard.
Reversed Bottem Buckle and Moved Middle buckle. Due to the Obcene amount of punching and grinding these buckles had to be relocated in order to close.
Unseen: Said Obcene amounts of punching stretching and grinding. When trying on this boot I was almost dying in pain because of my toes. i was told to shut up because the toebox can always be expanded. Well true to the bootfitters word, I have managed to create room where I never thought there could be previously. I have had probably 6+ different modifications to each toe box 2-4 modifications to boot body and ~ 4-6 modications to ankle area.Shell Fit:
Not too bigFoot beds:
At one point in time (febuary or aprx 60 skidays ago) that white stuff spelled out arch molds
Not sure if this shot has any value but I took it just incase.Now for a tour of my sexy feet and legs
There it is, Please note the Cankles (not sure how that happend I have almost no fat on me). and less importantly the bug bites (I'd like to thank the mosquitos at the campgroudn at the base of mt hood) my large calfs (I'd like to thank skiing for these) and the nasty veins under my fairly flat arch (i'll thank skiing for these too, my feet used to be immaculate
not exactly soda straw thicknessAnd these last ones are to compare width
I didnt have a tape measure so I used a common house hold item to measure.
Anyways I hope these helped. If not oh well. If there are any more pics I can take that will help you guys help me with my problem. I have a will and a camera so....
