So to revive this old thread. My ski season ended before I made any additional changes last year. I just went out yesterday for the first time this year and I need to get this resolved. I had to stop and play with the boots after every other run.
The rear spoiler was removed already.
Not sure what to try first.
FYI, I wear a street shoe size 11 1/2. The Lange shell is a size 10, medium fit. The liner says 10-10 1/2. The shell fit is a hair over 1 finger.
They were comfortably tight before I was hospitalized. Since then I am on immunosuppresant medications. One of the side effects of the drugs are numb feet. My soles always have a dull tingling sensation. I can't wear tight socks without discomfort, so ski boots are obviously an issue.
I'm not sure if I should just try to get fitted in a new boot with more room in the toe box or keep trying with these. How do you you know when enough is enough?
I've been working with Greg at Heino's ski shop in NJ. He has been great, but I'm still not sure if I should just start over.
