onenerdykidDon't research boot brands. Research boot-fitters and go to the shop that is best known for fitting boots. Have them assess your footshape and flex needs and get the boot that they recommend. Then go enjoy skiing.
What he said. I got the same problem as you. I got put into a Lange race boot because it suited my skiing ability, height, weight, shape of my foot, etc... also, off the shelf fit won't work for everyone, my boot was 104mm wide and I got it ground out to 109 maybe more, also had a bunch of work done to the tongue of my liner. Just trust the boot fitter, they know what they're doing
