I was just fitted with some new boots at a pro deal night. I have a really narrow heel, high instep, narrow toe box area and really skinny ankles. The bootfitter put me into size 27 Lange 110 RS boots. The shell fit seemed good--he had one finger and a bit. Apparently the shell size was a 27.5 and the thicker liner makes it a 27. He actually fitted me in the wide version because they didn't have the narrow version in stock. Fortunately the real version fit great around the instep and toebox.
After a day of skiing I'm finding that my heel still lifts in these boots and am not sure how to proceed. Because it was a pro deal night, the shop isn't willing to guarantee the boot fit. (Honestly the pro deal isn't worth it up here... I don't think I'll bother with pro deals again.)
I'm wondering if I should have been fitted in the 26.5 boots and had them severely punched out.
I've also discarded my old custom made footbeds as they tended to hurt my arches. From what I understand, a footbed will actually create more room in the boot, which is what I don't want...
What would you guys suggest? I'd value your opinions. My old boots (ill-fitting dalbello kryptons) had some kind of padding on the back of the boot above the heel which helped. Should I ask for this to be done? Also, this might sound like a dumb question, but should I be buckling the top two buckles tighter to lock the heel in? It really is a snug boot, aside from the heel lifting.
