NoobinsteinHello friends. Haven't been active on the forum for some time now, but I keep trusting it the same.
I use ski boots now the 6 season, but since last year my left foot experiences pain on its talus part of the hinderfoot. I do get that boots get amortized with time, but it is strange why the pressure is only on my left. Also is my judgment right, that when mostly riding skis backcountry & freeride and eventually center-binding, we tend to lean more on the back and it works bad on the ski-boots. So, being ignorant on this issue are there more specialized ski boots, as the classic shape is mostly alpine intended? Thanks a bunch!

1. Feet are different left to right, and feet change shape over time. That you have a problem on one foot but not the other is entirely normal, and can normally be fixed by a competent boot-fitter.
2. If you have the right boot for your needs and a ski with the proper amount of rocker for the snow you are skiing, then you shouldn't need to lean back while skiing. If you are primarily skiing backcountry and freeriding, then you normally don't want your binding center mounted.
3. There are lots of great boots available at the moment. It just depends on which one fits you and your needs the best. This is something we cannot answer for you, you will need to visit a boot-fitter who can actually see your feet and help you decide the best thing for you.
