So I'm not sure what to do. Every internet site says to go to a boot fitter, but I don't know any good ones around. I need to do something quick as I'm taking the day off wednesday to ski with the wife. So anyone solve this problem? Have any quick fixes? there are no real pressure points I can find, I tried grinding the shell a bit and it didn't make a difference. The only thing that seems to help is to wrap my lower calf with a bandage to try and get some more space between the ankle and the shell. any other ideas?
You might wanna either take a trip to a reputable area ski and board shop as they will typically know how to fit you for boots. Or you could try more socks? Thicker socks? If going the new boot route I suggest you prepare to spend money as well, comfortable ski boots aren't inexpensive these days.
I Stress: You must walk around in prospective ski boots for a minimum of 30 minutes with them still maintaining comfort before buying them. The longer the time you spend in the store with the boots on before buying the better. Comfort over long periods of time is key. Best of luck!
