krypton . question of keeping the heel down and back

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i love the flex of the krypton. i thought the middle buckle would have the perfect angle to keep my heel down and back. however, my heel seems to want to move forward and up. the shell fit is 1cm. my guess would be a tongue pad, as over tightening the middle buckle does not feel good. or possibly an inverted v-pad behind the ankle bones to keep the heel down. anybody else have this problem? when the heel is down and back the boot is great. as the heel moves forward, the big toe jams in front and the flex and control are off.

the movement is forwards and back?

try using a thin shim on the toungue and see how that feels, play around with the height and the thickness and see what works best.

a inverted "V" might just push you too far forward and cause MORE toe pain.

also see if a thin heel lift raises you up into a tighter part of the heel pocket too. or use a full length shim to keep the boot board angle the same.
