I have a pair of head edge+ sx boots which fit for about a week until the liners packed out. Now I see I would need a full size smaller, but can't afford buying a new pair. I have a pair of superfeet green insoles in them which I have worn for about 5 months in my running shoes that fit my feet well.
I have 3 main issues. The width is a hair too wide, the length is far to long, and the top of the tongue no matter what I do buckle wise is too tight compared to the lower shin/ankle area.
I had an idea which I simulated which was 1/4" of cork on top of the food board, which would alleviate the length issue and the width. For the tongue, I was going to put some foam down where it was too small to tighten it up. I also considered a tiny amount of foam on the sides of the heals to make sure they don't budge. All of these made for a very very snug fit, but no pain.
Do you see anything wrong with this, or do you have any other solutions for someone who cannot afford new boots, and does not live within distance of a boot fitter? Any tips, suggestions, or experience would be appreciated.
Thank You Very Much!
