Help: Funny/stupid situation

So I noticed recently that my rear binding is offset to my front by an inch or so. I retardedly mounted the, apparently non-symmetric, plate backwards and never noticed for 3 years. I also widened my stance. The ride was much better on this new setup, so I wanna keep it.

Ever since the change, I've gone out 3 times and the back of my heel is getting a really bad hotspot which is now a blister. I've worn these boots for a 4-5 years and never had issues, it's only until I moved the bindings.


What do I do? Hope that it breaks in a new spot in the boot liner?

The first 3 was very rarely used, I've only been going more the past 2-3 seasons.

Oh no, now you got me wanting new boots.

Got a pair of Smith I/O at a local Snowboard fest for ~70% off, love them.

I could use new gloves...and a helmet.



But seriously What do I do with this fn blister. lol.

It won't heal cause I kept going out and beating the same area. It's exactly where I'd have to press to do toe-side anything.

I'm gonna stuff the toe, increase the forward lean and reduce the angle by 2 degrees and test again tomorrow. Hopefully this will keep my heel from lifting/rubbing against the heel support and take some of the heat away from the area.
