too much heel lift will fuck everything up. when boots pack out it's time for new ones. remember to downsize as much as you can.

Oh it is fucking me all up. Killing my confidence.
I have less than 10 days on these boots. they still fit good, but have heel lift.

Take them to your local board/ski shop. They should be able to put some foam in the heel of your boots to help with the heel lift. If they can't, find a new shop.

I'm not sure what kind of relationship you have with your local shop, but if you have bought gear in there typically they will be cool with helping you out. I have seen places do this type of minor work anywhere from free to $5-10 if you bought your boots from them or were a regular customer. If you are a regular customer and have spent a good bit of money with them and they want to charge you a flat $60 then again find a new shop. If you just swing in there to look at the new stuff then order online I wouldn't expect them to want to help too much. This is where spending a little bit more to buy local pays off.

that sucks. i'm on my second season with the nike kaiju's. i went down a half size. i probably could have gone down a full size even though my shop guy and everyone else said i didn't need to. i keep the liners pretty snug, tighten the lower section a lot, and keep the upper section really loose. i love the boots and will get another pair after these are totally packed out which i'm guessing will be at the end of this season. doing the mods yourself is the way to go.

I also had a lot of trouble with toeside. The thing which worked for me was setting back a bit (ie moving bindings towards the back of the board, like a powder setup). It was an instant fix, almost like the shorter back end allowed me to turn and place the edge more quckly and firmly. But it may not work if you ride the park. I only do the piste runs. Now to be honest my toeside turn is better than heelside turn.

Believe it or not I ordered from tognars on the 19th and got my order on the 20th, that's damm fast.
Anyway I got the ankle wraps in, and they feel like a different boot. I still need to do some tweaking and sanding on them, but it feels a whole lot better.
Lilpea I still have some tweaking on the bindings setup as well, so maybe I will give that a try, thanks.
