Problem solved for two more seasons. My 6th toe was so painful I expected to see blood every time I took the boot off. I am told it is caused by foot rubbing against the shell/liner. My new boots were great for about 25 days then the problem developed pretty quickly as the crappy stock liner packed out. The boot staff at the shop I'm affiliated with now, cringe a little when they see my clown boots with the missing toe buckles. I'm pain free and have been for two hard seasons. It took most of the summer for the 6th toe bunion to reduce itself.
BTW did the canting help anything?
The canting helped a lot with my skiing!
My 6th toe hurts when walking or sitting eating lunch - not so much while I am actually skiing.
I am hoping it goes down over the summer.
