Hey guys I'm new to this site so if I am doing something wrong please let me know. I am relatively new to the park scene I got some Afterbangs last year and I started just doing some basic rails and 180's 360's and such on smaller jumps. I was using some rec boots that I had and I have to say they absolutely sucked on jumps and really anything aggressive. I need to get some new boots for this year but I am wondering if new better fitting boots will fix these problems (listed Below) and if not what custom work do I need to get done.
1. My heel would lift a lot any time I put pressure on my tips.
2. To fix number 1 I would tighten the straps to the point where my feet hurt like hell after 2-3 laps (From the Midwest so using a rope tow).
3. I would get a lot of toe bang on most every jump large or small I went off.
I read through the boot fitting forum and it gave me a lot of information but I am just wondering if my problems were mostly from an ill fitting boot and how I would go about purchasing boots to insure they are remotely comfortable.
