tomPietrowskiHow have you narrowed down your options? They both fit very differently so won't both fit so I'm guessing you have not yet been to a fitter.
Start there. Go find out what shape and size of boots you need then if you really have to look online but you would be so much better buying boots from a fitter in a shop
ZurgI forgot to mention, I'm heading out to a local shop to try them on. I'm just looking for some opinions and options. Thanks for the help :)
ZurgHEYO NS, I have a few questions about some boots. Yes I know the right boot for me is the one the fits the best. But I have my possible boot options down to 2 different boots.
tomPietrowskiHonestly just wait. There are so many boots out there that without first seeing a fitter it's very unlickley you will be able to select the correct shape. So rather then lookin at boots which may not fit just wait and take the advice of the fitter. Do be aware though that the boot is not the only cost. you will need some form of footbed so just be prepared to put money aside for those.
jonhenryvDon't know if this counts as a boot sizing question but figured it was my best bet. I have a question that I'm hoping someone can answer for me. I have a pair of Nordica 3 piece boots and my one calf is noticeably smaller then the other due to nerve damage. But not the point. my ski boot fits snug around the other calf but i have a fair bit of space all around my other legs calf muscle. It results in my leg bouncing around my boot and wicked heel lift. I have tried spacers and wrapped tensor bandages around the leg, even tried cutting and layering socks around the area and i can't seem to find anything that fits. So my question is, does anybody have any ideas to help me with this problem???
tomPietrowskiThere are a few things you can try. If you want to stick with your current liner you could try a tounge eliminator. It's a piece Of foam shaped like a tounge which can be fitted inside or out of te liner. It can extend onto the forefoot whic may also help with heel lift. This alone may stand yiu too upright in the boot however so getting a spoiler added to take volume at the back could help too potentially.
The he other way to go is changing the liner to perhaps a wrap style. Wraps will add volume to the cuff but if the other boot I ok you will be sticky with a liner you don't use.
Depending how how bacd the damage is, distinct hole for example, a foam injection liner could be ideal as it could potentially fill the void somewhat. You could have the liner in both boots as you would just end up with less foam in the bigger side.
foitbeds can can help too if you have not got them. By stabilizing the foot you can help prevent pronation in the boot which can turn the tib and fib causing the cuff to be harder to fit.
Oberall you you need to look for a good fitter as you won't be fixing this problem by yourself
