I'm a girl with small feet that loves to ski everything on or off-piste, in or out of the park/moguls/trees/backcountry, but boots are always a huge issue. At the moment I have a pair of Tecnica Diablo Pro's (Women's) from last year that are riveted to accomodate for my more aggressive skiing style. The two big problems I have are:
1. My shell size is a 260mm or in between a 21 - 22 depending on the boot company. Most boot companies don't make their 100+ flex boots, low-volume, in this size for someone with a narrow foot. What suggestions does anyone have for boots?
2. AT boots don't seem possible for me, I tried on the Garmont's in a 23, but the shell size is definately to big for my foot. Is there any hope of creating an AT boot that might work, like taking a Black Diamond or a Garmont 23 and getting it foamed? I've never had a boot foamed and therefore dont' know much about how they were and pack out, I live at the base of a ski resort so I ski just about every possible day.
3. I used to have Lange Junior World Cup Race 110's that worked great, however the cuff was always extremely low on my calf and I like that the Tecnica boot comes up further on my leg, however the Lange always seemed to have room for my narrow boney heel to slip into when I flexed forward and the Tecnica doesn't. Basically is there a boot out there that has a higher cuff (even know I'm only 5'1, it seems to ski better for me), a heel pocket, low-volume fit, and a flex (100+), that accomodates the 21-22 size?
Your suggestions and input are greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks:) Skier girl who needs a new pair of boots!
