First pair of boots, can't seem to get the fit right.
So this season is the first I'm buying my own equipment. Got me last years rossignol justice which I love, plus diva bindings.
Right now I just have a pair of used mens size 6 firefly boots. Crap I know, but i picked them up for 30 bucks because I don't want to waste money until I find that right pair of boots. I've been into every local store here, and I just can't seem to find a boot that keeps my ankles secure. I've never bought boots before, only rented, but are my ankles seem to be able to move too much in the boots. Like, a half inch to 3/4 up.
Am I being too picky, are they suppose to move so much? Store people don't seem to be able to give me sound advice, and I've kind of run out of options... Should I start trying on men's boots? How about dual boa? Would that tighten my ankles down more?
I really don't want to order online... But all we have here is sports check, and a board shop that has nothing. I will be going to a store two hours away this weekend as my last effort, anything else is over 8 hours away.. Any tips when trying them on. I was looking at stiffer boots (before I started trying on everything) as my ankles have been messed with countless times from other sports.
