Hi I purchased about 6 weeks ago a pair of attiva flames. I have some pretty wild "Q" angles, I am bull-legged and when straight my legs are hyperextended ( to the extent that PT's and Docs had me retrain myself to walk with knees slightly bent ) Okay, the boots. When I originally tried the boots on etc. They felt great. The bootfitter thought it would be a good idea to adjust the side adjustment into an upright stance, the flex is currently set at stiffest level also. He did this because I tend to ski almost too forward (knees too bent ). I thought it sounded like a good idea, but wasn't thinking of the issues I have mentioned above. After this was done, I have had a terrible time keeping my heel in the heel pocket, maintaining forward pressure on anything other than a traverse, the boots don't feel like they fit all that good, my stance is tweaked and I have experienced terrible backpain ( like have to grip the side of the bed and pull myself to roll over ) which through a process of elimination, I can blame on the boots. So anyway, I definately need to go back and have the thing on the side of the boot readjusted, but other than what is in the manual, am kind of oblivious to the ins and outs of it. Can anyone give me a primer so that I can prevent this mayhem from happening again when I go back?
