boots thread died, trying to get question answered:
I went to a boot fitter a few years back spending a solid two hours in the store looking for the right fitting boot for me, the fitter seemed pretty knowlegeable and after trying a wide selection of boots told me that i would choices were basically reduced to skiing in pain or giving it up. So now i'm looking for any insight or suggestions anywhere of boots to check out and try or any insight into looking for the right kind of boot. Ended up compromising on some salomon foil boots (suggestions by fitter, that or dalbellos- too narrow), went a size or two too small to make up for wideness (i know stupid but was in a hurry for the season) and now have been dealing with losing toenails every season, bruises on toes, and leaving the second to bottom buckle loose to relieve some of the pain. Foot specs: narrow/med. more narrow, high arch, and high instep <- main source of pain and problem it seems. any suggestions?
