I know the advice that can be given online is limited without actually seeing my foot, but hear me out. I wear a size 10 shoe, and have 25.5 ft classics (293 bsl). Last season, every day I skied my feet would hurt shortly after I put my boots on but would dissipate after a few runs and they would feel great until later in the day. after 4-5 hours on pain free skiing, the backs of my heels would start to hurt, which i think is due to my heels not being secure in the boot. i have the middle buckle tightened to the max and this still happens. would the solution to this be footbeds?
another problem i have is when i am on my feet in ski boots for 1+ hours (hiking rails, ropetow, bootpacking) without lift rides to take the pressure off, my feet hurt alot.jpg. not sure if there is anything to fix this other then just getting a boot that fits properly.
and finally, there is a large gap between my calf and the boot liner, enough to conceal 4 fingers completely. this is with the power strap tightened all the way. i get shinbang and am guessing this is part of the reason.
tl;dr jumped on the full tilt bandwagon 2 years back as a noob, dont want to replace boots. i have heel pain even with middle buckle fully tightened, feet hurt when im on my feet for 1+ hours (no lift rides to relieve the pressure), large gap between calf and liner.
