Started out on Dec 15th with the Lange World Cup 130 LF right out of the box (I know it's from a few years ago but the store still had a pair last April when I bought it). Low volume boot (which in retrospect was an error with my E width foot). Have been working on them all season. They've been punched out 7 times and they've been scraped to create more vertical space. The liners have also been cut to allow for the width of my foot. Toe box has been substantially increased in width. No footbeds b/c apparently I have the rare foot (rigid? high arch or something) that wouldn't benefit, especially in the low volume boot. Initially, they were unwearable after about 10 minutes. With all the work that has been done on them, they feel great initially; however, after a few hours, the 2nd and 3rd toes (with the 2nd being the one beside the smallest toe) really start to hurt (more on the right boot than the left). When I'm in the boot without a liner in my bare feet, you can fit one finger between the back of my heel and the back of the boot. You can't get 2 fingers in there. These boots are a full size smaller than my previous Lange boots. Here is the thing - when I lean forward in the boot, the toes do not hit the front so length has been ruled out as the problem; however, when I put the boots on, width does not feel like the problem either. Any thoughts? I'm wondering, if perhaps length is a problem whenever i'm not forward, i.e. maybe my 2nd and 3rd toes are hitting the front of the boot every time I get thrown back (which unfortunately happens quite often when I'm on the slalom course!). I don't think the pain is from circulation getting cut off (that's already been fixed). Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
