I've been skiing my entire life, usually get 30-40 days a year or so, split between the resort and touring. I've had my fair share of foot pain, but nothing compared to what my girlfriend has been dealing with.
She picked up some Atomic hawx xtd touring boot she uses in the resort/touring.
Things she's done:
The liners have been heat molded twice by the store where she bought them. The tech fit the boots.
The toebox has been punched out (different tech).
Heel raiser inserted (different tech)
Tounge pads added (own volition)
Buying a pair of Full Tilts from a random guy. Didn't work, the same pain.
Here is the main problem. Standing around the boots is fine, she can wear them for hours with no pain. Touring up in the boots is completely fine. Skiing groomers is fine. The issue is when she gets off-piste, she says her foot and ankle are "bashing around" this leads to intense pain and we have to call the day. Tightening the boots leads to calf cramping and more pain.
The various techs we have seen when getting the boots fitted have all said the shell fit is fine and the fit looks fine to them.
I'm totally at a loss, any suggestions would be extremely helpful.
