Hi, my problem is simple. I love to ski and my boots prevent me from having that fun. For the past three years, each season has been a struggle to stop shin bang and other damage to my lower leg. I have never had a pair of boots that I can be comfortable in all day. I was fitted both times for boots since I started free skiing by known local boot fitters. My latest pair of boots don't seem to be giving me shin bang, but must be clamped tight to stay on well; so my fore foot, calf, and lower leg muscles are being strained quite a bit by the tightness of the boot. Does anyone one have a suggestion on how I can make my boots feel better?
i dealt with these same issues for a couple seasons. sell them and get a smaller boot. if your boots have to be really clamped down, it restricts the flex of the boot, even on kryptons. if you have the right shell size, you should feel like you're locked in snugly with no wiggle or heel lift, without having to clamp down.
i had smaller stiffer boots, and these fit better, they are nordica speed machine 12s, and im using them for a lot of jumping and park skiing as well as some all mountain. they stay on fine if i pull the booster tight, but then i have to clamp them or my buckles will hang loose. I'm thinking maybe I should have my boots professionally cut?
It's hard for us to say based on only a worded description of the problem.
