Well the day has come where I need to hang up the old boots of 10+ years and grab some new sneaks.
Problem is my feet are huge.
I wear a size 14 and though a 31.5 is my size - i can squeeze into a 31 with some light mods. Last needs to be at least 100 but would prefer 102.
Ive been dying for a freeride boot thats compatible with alpine bindings as well as WTR and even a pin toe piece if possible.
I just ordered a pair of the Scarpa Freedom SL 120 in a 31.
The fit is fairly spot on - except that I have a lot of pressure on the top of my foot near the ankle joint (this is called something in the boot fitting world but i cant remember - it has to do with high volume on the top of your foot.)
Id like to make these work - but at the same time - i should be going to a bootfitter to try and make a brand new pair of boots work. Its as though if my heal could go lower this pressure would releave itself.
Im about 5 hrs from a bootfitter I would trust and my return window is closing so i need to make a decision/find an alternative.
Does anyone else know of a comparable boot?
I like the Fulltilt Ascensions and the Diablo Lupos - however they only have a mold to size 30.5 which is a no go for me....
