Narrow Foot, tried on Atomic Hawx 90, want narrower...suggestions?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been skiing the same pair of Solomon boots since 1994 and I'm finally going to get a new pair since I'm waaaay overdue.

I stopped in at a local shop at lunch today to see what is available.  Measurements show that I'm a 27 Mondo in length, with a very narrow and flat foot.  The boot fitter's suggestion was the Atomic Hawx 90 in size 27.  Overall the boot seemed to fit ok but weren't as tight as I'd like them to be.  It felt like I could definitely go narrower. Unfortunately the only boots he had that were narrower were some 98mm width boots at over $600.  Unfortunately I don't want to pay that much since I just can't justify it based on my frequency of skiing.  I was out of time anyway (lunch break) so I said I'd stop back in and check out the "top rack" later.

I'm wondering if anybody has any boot suggestions to check out that might come in a narrower width at a reasonable price ($300 - $400 range hopefully). 

Anybody?

I have some older nordica WC boots in 95mm last. $300 + shipping

HOWEVER!!!

a boot on sale is worthless if it doesn't fit and sounds like you are having some issues with fit

I ended up today at a different ski shop with a much better bootfitter.  It turns out that not only is the 98mm width the fit for me, but I also fit better in a 26.5 over a 27. 

The pair I landed on is the Dalbello Krypton Cross I.D.  Unfortunately the price is more than I initially wanted to spend ($525+tax), but I think I'm going to pull the trigger on them this Saturday after I've thought it through.  The liner is heat moldable and the guy said they will provide that service for free, so I figure that's a bit of a value-add over an internet buy. 

The only problem I have now is that he said they can't set up my new pair of Rossignol Z11 Mutix skis I picked up at the end of last season because they're not Rossignol certified!  Win some lose some I guess...
