Atomic Boot Pressure Point

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have widish feet so I got the m-tech 110 for their 102mm last.  They're still a little tight at the toes after 10 days, maybe could use a punch but what is causing me serious pain is that I have a pressure point on my pinky toes where the first buckle attaches through the shell .  If I feel inside the shell there is a cavity around the rivet, so it is not smooth and the cavity accentuates the metal rivet, after a couple hours skiing it becomes unbearable and it is the exact same on both sides even though my right foot is a little smaller.  Is this common with Atomics?, any suggestions?  Punch it a little and fill in the cavity with epoxy? Thx for any help.

if it is the shell moulding around the rivet then it can be ground down a little to smooth it out, i wouldn't say it was particularily common but if it catches your foot at the wrong point it will hurt, the boot may require a small punch in that area as well but best take it to a good fitter and let them sort it out

 

good luck
