So, any tried and tested methods, extras, or boots that will eliminate my heel lift? If you are going to recommend a boot, you should know that I fit around a UK7-8 (Depends on brand and model) and will be using the same set-up, mostly all mountain but leaning towards park riding.


Thanks for your help.
If you have ridiculously narrow heels, you should try a brand that is good for narrow heels like Nitro. (I have very skinny heels). DCs have pretty wide heels.

Otherwise, you will end up like me in the past... adding 2 sets of C-pads around the liner to fill in the space around my ankle bones.
