ways to make rental boots fit better
Hey guy's, I tried boarding this past week and I fell in love. I have wanted to learn for so long and the local mountain resort was offering 39$ for rental lesson and lift pass.
I wear a size 12 shoe so i tried a 12" boot, it fit snugly and was kind of cramming my toes but i just wore them thinking they were supposed to be tight. after an hour my feet were done, just ached everywhere. so i went back into the shop and got a size 13". it fit much better as far as room. toes touched but were not getting pinched. the problem is my heel was lifting inside the boot too much, it did it even with the 12" but it was worse with the 13". as you can imagine it made it harder to learn because i had less control and my feet were tiring.
Im not going to buy equipment my first season so i need to figure out a way to make the heel of the rental boot fit better. the place i go to uses some burton "learn to ride" equipment if that helps.
could it be a lacing issue? it just had a quick lace system. not the knob type but its more like a plastic thing that you pushed down while pulling up the laces. (hard to explain)
any tricks or tips other than for me to buy some boots. not an option at the moment.
