Full tilt heel circulation
Hello, I know you all are here to tell me I should Have gone to a boot fitter(which I did) But when I wear my boots for an hour + my heel looses circulation. What can I do to fix this? everything else in the boot feels great. fyi I have not got them molded Thanks
Therein lies your problem sir, provided they are the right size and shape for your foot to begin with.
get them molded and feel the difference
yes there are all the right size, I tried on other boots and surprisingly they felt the best. I'll get on the molding thanks
if the problem persists after heat molding try to loosen your calf buckle by one latch and see if that helps
Firstly: do you get this "circulation" problem in the heel of the boot from skiing in it? Or sitting/standing around at home in it? My feet are pretty fussy in my boots unless I am forward in them and actually skiing them, and that is somewhat normal if you want a boot to ski well (depending on the pressure point). Regardless I would recommend the following:
1. Get some sort of footbed into the boot. It'll set your heel up into a slightly wider part of the heel pocket.
2. Mold the liner! If you have heel spurs or unusual hot spots put some thin foam on those parts of your heel during the molding process. If you do this, be certain you need the extra space.
3. If the pressure point continues after you have skied the boot a sufficient amount, (enough time for the liner to pack out a bit) consider having the shell punched or ground out.
I would see a boot fitter to do all of the above. And probably not the original one you saw, since they advised you to ski the boot without molding the intuition........
Go to a bootfitter. Its gonna be around 200$ but any pressure points or problems cutting off your circulation their gonna be able to fix.
