Here is what I have going on, my feet are a size 11 and I have to wear size 11.5 2E shoes and those are pretty tight for the first month.
Getting ready for a ski trip I went out to a ski store and bought boots ( Salomon X wave 10 that were 28.5) the bootfitter (not professional) in the store told me that these were going to be real nice and wide. I tried them on and they were a little snug, so I went home and I wore them for a little while before my trip and they were still tight.
So my trip comes and we head up to Wolf Creek CO. and I put the boots on and step into my skis and about 10 min later my feet go num and i cant feel anything, so I take off the boots and I go and rent some and those dont fit either and then I am forced to size up in boots which made my performance go down significantly. While all this was going on I had taken my boots to a local store and had then stretched, I tried those the next day and still the pain was unbearable after 5 min. So I am going to get rid of these boots and try something next season.
All of this brings me to my question, what should I be looking at? The (professional) bootfitter out here in CO. told me to look into tecnica HVL's. Also I was looking at maybe some custom boots, like surefit or something like that. I really want to find some wide nice fitting boots becuase I really want to continue skiing and not have to switch to snowboarding or stop completely.
I appreciate everything and anything. Thanks!
