Now I realize that fit can not be done in the forum - the best fit is with a boot fitter - I'm just looking for suggestions.
Not sure where to start other than my toes are numb and cold...there I said it. I have spent the better part of this season working on my boots with the boot fitter at my local store. This boot fitter comes recommended from people that I have met etc..etc.. and is the same one that originally fit the boots.
Them: boots are Lange Comp 120fr's, custom foot bed, power straps. The liners have about 200 days on them. Boots were shell fitted.
Me: I'm 6-2 ish @ 190 and a level 6-7 skier - more of a finesse skier than power, high arch, low volume foot, 2nd toe longer on the right foot. I wear ‘thin’ wool socks. I also have a lot of veining on the back of my ankle and on top of the foot.
Originally the boots had fitted not bad, and any pressure points have been worked out, but always had space problems in the toe box - the right foot the toes are tight across, the left not so much so. I also have some numbness in the big toe on both feet. I have had the box on both feet widened and this helps but still needs more (doing this as we speak/type). The original foot beds have been replaced (the old ones were cut to 3/4 to give more room in the toe box - but broke down & arch collapse) but this hasn't made much of a difference. The new beds (full) have more 'filler' underneath. I usually run with the 1st & 2nd buckles undone when the temp is in the 20’s.
I change socks at mid day and throw hand warmers in the boot on the way to the hill and at lunch. At the end of the day I am not a happy person.
I’m getting to the point that frustration is setting in and the boot fitter is probably tired of seeing me (now we are talking about 5 or 6 visits) – I am starting to think (first problem 8-) ) that either I’m not communicating well or he doesn’t know his stuff OR could I have a undiagnosed issue with my feet.
Would I need to recheck cuff alignment with new foot beds?
Comments please on how to progress..
