Default too much room in heel

hi. my boots fit me well. but i feel that sometimes my heels are lifted in side my boots, hence it can become hard for me to control the board. are there any special socks or padding in the market that i can wear to prevent this?
thank you.

Your best bet is to go and see a boot fitter, most ski towns tend to have a really good one, try get an idea from the locals as to who to see. Then they can have a look at whats going on and mould and arrange footbeds to try and sort out the problem.

Pretty common problem.

Either go to a good boot fitter or do it yourself via trial and error.

Tognar seems to have lots of shims and pads.

Heel lift isn't what you need. You just need some J bars or a butterfly wrap put in. Although if you're heels lifting you have a boot that doesn't fit you.
