I was just fitted for the Tecnica Diablo Race Pro 90 boot. The boot fit great in the shop but I have not yet tried them on the slope. After trying on many different boots, this was the best fit. I am a 5'3" female with a narrow foot, high instep and size 23.5. I purchased the boots at one of the better shops which works with many local racers and had a custom footbed made as well. When I got home, I realized that the boot is really a junior boot. What is the difference with a junior boot versus a women specific boot? Is this boot also a good fit for adult women? I am an advanced skier and wanted a stiffer boot than most of the recreational boots offer.

should be fine.
a Jr race boot is made for someone a bit lighter then you, but more ability.
most stores have some Jr race boots for ladies like you (lighter, narrow foot)
plus side = 30-50% less then the adult version
down side = lower end liner (colder?), maybe not metal buckles? few other bells and whistles
