I have one pair of Rossignol power .1 boot, the left foot is good but on the right I have pain over the intep. I want buy a new boot I have try a few ski boots but I can not decide wich is the best shell for my instep. How can I determine how much mm must I have between The instep and the shell? Thanks

Hi renabern,

If the left boot is "ok"---it sounds like you need to find a bootfitter in your area to modify the right one to fit you foot, which might mean only modifying the tongue of the liner. Check the sticky at the top of "ask the boot guys" for a list of boot fitters.

Happy Holidays

A good bootfitter will be able to make more room in the instep and relieve pressure from the instep. Are the Rossignols an old boot? You may not get the fit you are looking for out of the box and might need a fitter for whatever boot you purchase. Talk to your local ski shop professionals and try on as many boots as possible.

What you don't want to do is trade one problem for another if all that is wrong with your current boots is the instep pressure on one boot.

Rossi Power 1 vs. new boot- winner - New Boot

I think that boot is 5-6 years old, probably. A soft race boot with a considerable amount of forward lean. It is black/gold if I remember correctly.

Honsetly, with a boot that old, I would look a newer model. The design had been changing constantly over the past 5 years so the boots are more upright and laterally rigid for better edge control. Also, that liner is most likely beat as well.
If you like the Rossignol line, I would reccomend the new Sensor line, in a 100 or 110 flex. Downsize the shell on that boot as it runs particularly long.

Yes the boot is old and the color is black/gold. In the post "wich boot will work for me?" I have found some information to find the right boot, width and lenght. ( 5-15 mm for the lenght 2 mm per side for the width) There is some hint to find the right shell for the instep? (eg. 5-15 mm between the instep shell and the foot instep or more) Thanks

how it feels

You will know what kind of feel you like on your instep when you get into the right boot for you. Don't overthink it, just go try on some new boots.

Renabern:
I'm going to agree with Mike on this. One foot is OK and the other is not. So I would say there is a difference between feet, just like everyone. Maybe you will find a boot that will be comfortable for both without work, but maybe you can save yourself $$$$$ and just have the tongue modified for the boot that makes your foot ache.
