Head Mojo Heatfits

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have an issue with my 2008(Black and White ones) Mojo Heatfits.  A little history.

I bought a pair in summer of 08. I had the ankles blown out a little. I sent these back to Head for warranty.  The liner outer soles were coming off and the shell had an issue with the cuff where the white and black met.  Head replaced the the whole boot.  I only wanted new liners.  I was PO'ed.  I had no pain with these boots. 

The new pair was blown out in the ankles like the previous ones.  These have an issue now that comes and goes.  It appears that the ligament on the front of ankle is getting scar tissue built up due to the boot.  The pain is bad at times from the boots and other times it not bad.  It can be one boot or both.  The tongue of the boot has been ground down that is the plastic on the outside.  What could be going on with this pressure point?

The other boots did not have this problem at all.

If the heel is not held down and back in the boot, that might allow the foot to move forward, and that part of your foot will be the first to touch the shell?

 

just guessing.

Do you have a good, supportive footbed?

usually liners, any liner, just packs out to the shell shape, and is not the problem,  usually it is the shell.

I have an A-line.  I tried it this year in this boot and it was not helping and I went back to the stock bed.  Could the shell not be flexing properly?

maybe,   can you make it softer and try?

 (remove rivets, power strap on liner only, etc)

What rivets?   It is on the soft the setting.

sometimes you can remove some bolts/rvivets to make a boot softer.

try the strap on the  liners

In addition to the above mentioned solutions you may want to revisit getting a good footbed.  Not that it will be the cure all for your problem but using a stock footbed that comes with ski boots - (I am sure most of the fitters here will agree, perhaps not all) - is not a good idea in the long run.

I have the A-line and this was causing other problems.  This problem comes and goes.  It did not bother me this weekend.  Could it be variations in my putting the boot on and my foot may be swollen one and not the next?
