I just picked up a pair of 25.5 descendant 8's (#12 flex tongues) after riding a widened pair of 26.5 classics for 3 seasons. I wear a size 9 US mens but my feet are wide in the front and skinny in the heel so figured another size down in ski-boot would help with heel hold and a wider shell would mean i wouldn't have to punch the boot as I did with the classics. The descendants are tight in all the right places and super comfortable while riding but i noticed when really throwing my weight over the noses of my skis, my heel AND the liner will pull up and out of the heel pocket of the boot a whole inch and a half like i would literally almost fall out of the boot with it fully tightened and have to push my heel (with the liner still secured around it) back into the heel pocket of the shell.
I had the liners heat molded and that's it before riding. I am going to see if J-bars helps keep it in place when I ride tomorrow. The liner feels super glued to my foot but but both some how manage to pull out of that heel pocket when leaning super far forward.
Has anyone else experienced this issue or know what might be causing it? How can I keep my heel and the liner in that heel pocket of the shell???
Note: Just to be clear, the liners feel absolutely fine around my feet and stay superglued to the foot no matter what. The problem is that both things slide out of the heel pocket of the shell together when i put extreme forward pressure on the boots. Please don't tell me to go to a boot fitter because I did and this is what the fitter and I thought would work best and while it is over all very secure around my feet, it definitely is not when buttering/throwing weight over the noses very hard. Thanks in advanced!!!
