Before I start please don't tell me "go to a boot fitter" or just link me to the How to Buy Ski Boots thread here: https://www.newschoolers.com/ns/forums/readthread/thread_id/311248/
Because I have been to three different boot fitters and have read that thread already.
My issue is I live in New Zealand so the range of ski boots is very small compared to the US, Canada, Europe etc. I have a very small, wide and high arch foot so finding boots that fit properly is very difficult. I've got a custom footbed which helps a lot though. I need some suggestions on what boots to look for, I ski park 90% of the time (I live near a snowdome).
I'm a size 24.5/25.5 and I've tried:
Salomon SPK 85 - I have a very prominent saddle bone so I found the big buckle on the bottom part of the boot put all of its pressure directly over the top of it which made it unbearably sore.
Nordica Double Six - I tried 24.5 which I found to be extremely tight and uncomfortable so then I tried the 25.5 which was better but there was still a lot of pressure over the top of my foot and my toes weren't reaching the end of the boot.
Then I tried Salomon Quest 90 and Tecnica Cochise 90 which actually fitted well and were comfy but I'm just a little bit unsure of whether or not they would be ok to use in the park.
So now I need some suggestions on what boots to look for, the ski shops here are willing to order in a boot for me to try on.
Thanks for any suggestions/help :)
