Heel raising in boots.
i have considerably narrow feet and my current boots fit very well length and width wise however i find that my heel still raises wen doing presses and such. is there any way to really fix this because my boot fits well judging it was recommended by a bootfitter i just have really goofy feet.
Footbeds will help, you may also want to try tightening the buckles closest to the flex point on the boot. The center buckle for full tilts and dalbellos, the two close to center for other traditional 4 buckle boots.

ok will any footbed do? or do i have to go to a shop to have them fitted?
if you want the problem solved, you need to get fit properly. Go to a good boot-fitter and get what he/she recommends for your foot profile. Then, have him/her put on some L or C shaped pads around/behind your ankle. Stabilize your foot with the footbed first, then have these pads put on to secure everything.
yeah i have the same problem but havent ever really started to think about it till now. my heel pulls up anytime like when i get on the chairlift and im just sittin there, skis dangling. i might be crazy but i feel that it effects me when im trying to jump over stuff flat ground cause i can always feel the heel pull up first.
boots are either too big or you have a skinny leg compared to the boot you are in. As said above you can go to a shop and get a custom footbed which will help significantly by aligning your foot properly. A heel lift will also suffice by raising your heel to become more in contact with the buckle and fit of your boot making it tighter in the heel

A heel lift can sometimes work, sometimes not. It depends on how your ankle already sits in the heel pocket of the shell and on how much instep room you have. Heel lifts will take up some heel slop, but they might also reduce the amount of room over your instep because they lift your foot or they could lift your heel out of the existing ankle pocket. They also alter the ramp angle in the boot, which can upset other things. Generally speaking, I perfer to use C and L pads because they don't change anything but ankle hold. With that said, your boot-fitter will know what to do once he/she sees your specific set up.
