Go to a good local shop and spend some time with a good boot fitter. Heat molding and inserts like J bars, C bars, and such can make a big difference.

Good luck!
Before I bought this last pair of Nikes I probably tried on 20 pairs of boots. Im sure Ill do the same thing again I was hoping to narrow it down some before going in but you're right, that's the best way to figure it out.

I am interested in the FT sytem though. Aren't there 4 or 5 'zones' to tighten? Do you have trouble getting enough muscle to pull me tight enough?
