Yup!! Good fitting boots make ALL the diff!! Glad you found a pair that work well for you! I didn't have your fit problems & I still had to go thru 3 pairs before I found the 4th that fit & didn't absolutely KILL my feet!

...don't worry too much about that. If you read some of the other posts around here you;ll see that almost EVERYBODY has an off day!! I started this season, way more sketchy and clumsier than I did at the start of last season, & last was my first full season! I managed to get it back & now I'm getting some new tricks dialed in!! It'll come back to you better than before, I'm sure of it!
