Okay this thread isn't a what kind of boot should I buy type of thread, I learned the hard way and I DID go to a bootfitter for these boots!!
That being said, I have a few questions/tweaks. I have wider feet hince why I got the booter even thought I didn't much like the influence design, but I do LOVE my boots.
My calves are bigger than average and I had seen someone post about adjusting or removing the spoiler. Now I assume this is the gray rubber thing that my calf sits on. Since my calves are pretty big and my leg below my calf is not super long I often get pressure on my calf, it is bareable but something that I wouldn't mind being fixed. So is it safe or normal to just completely remove this "spoiler"?
Other than my calf pressure the only thing I feel that is sometime uncomfortable with my boots is at the beginning of the season they always fit so much tighter which i'm sure is normal, and when I had them fitted I debated on custom footbeds but decided the intuition liner would be fine. I have come to realize it has sort of compressed and is not as comfortable as it was when they were new but the liners are still in mint condition.
So do you have any suggestions for that to make them more comfortable without spending the money for custom footbeds, and home fixes that arent super janky or some footbeds that can be cut for fit, anyone used gel inserts like for shoes before? Just anything would help. Like I said it isn't a huge issue but something I could benefit from.
One more question is about my tongue, it is a 4 flex, me being a little heavier skier 245lbs do you think a 6 flex would make things feel more stable? Also I have never had shin bang with these (sometimes a little side leg pressure points but no shin bang) so would the stiffer flex tongue be more likely to cause shin bang and it is something I prolly just shouldn't mess with.
If anyone has any ideas or things they have done to make yours just slightly more comfortable let me know please and thank you!! Such as (Power strap), etc. Thanks so much. +++Karma
