Might give the Nike and Celsius boots a shot as well as Salomon and DC

Ya you have the right idea by trying on a bunch of pairs first. Boots are the single most important item of your entire setup

My DC Scouts have a nice tight heel. I know it's different for everyone, but it's worth looking into.

I have a very narrow heel too and Salomon F22s are the only boots I've come across that fit and even with those I have to throw some J bars in after about 10 days riding.

Salomon has been the only brand I've found that really holds my heel in well. They've got a narrow heel, and also a material just in the heel that's soft, but also very clingy that helps as well. 32 Lashed were fairly narrow in the heel, but not as much as the Salomons I tried.
