heel lift? what to do? I can not fit in to boots that are any smaller.

I have Forum destroyer boots, size 12 and i get a bit of heel lift. I found these things.. Save on Booster Heel Anchors Snowboards Snowboarding Gear Equipment but i don;t exactly get what these do. Any ideas?

Thanks

Get a pair of J pads. They're dirt cheap...couple of bucks. They stick onto the outside of your liner and create a more defined heel pocket. Pretty much any shop that fits ski boots will have them or try tognar

Honestly, i would try some good insoles like Superfeet or the like and replace your insoles.
I bought them for other reasons(after seeing the cheap paper shit that was in my Rulers), but they also had the added effect of raising my foot up slightly higher in the boot all but eliminating my heel lifting that would happen. The boots fit even better(they felt great without) and i couldnt get the leverage to lift my heel while on my toes edge.

Welp what i found is that the heel lift is actually occuring in the liner and not the boot. Cheap boots maybe?? i dunno but i added an insole inside the liner and it feels good now. We'll see if this change achieves anything this wednesday when i hit the mountains.
