Right, I was surprised that I was getting the internal discomfort despite still having the straps be so loose. I think
the key is keeping the toestrap looser than I expected to let the boot slide in fully.
When watching the video at around 0:45, can you see the highback is pushing in the back of the boot (slightly crumpling it)? I had the strap a lot tighter on the mountain and the effect was much more noticeable. As I mentioned before you can still see the indentations in the heel area of my boot from the Flow highback.
Thanks again for all the help!
