Default Nitro

Nitro are by far the best boots for my ultra-narrow heels and skinny ankles.

I've previous tried Burton (Shaun White, Ion, Driver), 32 (TmTwo... and whatever was stiff than that), DCshoes (Radians, Judge Double Boa), Vans (three pairs, I forgot the model names), Ride boots, Salomon (Dialogue, Synapse, Malamute, F20, F22) - ALL of those were too wide in the ankle for me (I would get heel-lift unless I over-tightened the laces) - with Salomon and Ride being the least worst.

With the Nitro Team TLS and now the Nitro Select TLS, I finally could tighten the upper laces just "snug" tight and have my heel locked in. I can leave the lower laces loose and not crush/numb my toes.

Anyone who is cranking down on their laces has a less than ideally fitting boots... they just don't realize it yet.
