Boots , fit , insoles ?
Hi all , I'm new here and an intermediate rider , quite comfortable on reds but still mainly on piste....i have an all burton setup at present , pretty inexpensive and having a few issues which i'd like to rectify before the season really kicks in.
I have burton invader boots and they are killing me,!the whole base of my foot is sore after 2 runs and lasts all day. The fit I think is ok they don't feel small but I think I am getting some heel lift for sure, I have narrow feet and ankles.
should I be thinking about a different boot , insoles , bindings ?
I will be in the U.S soon and prices are really good compared to European pricing so I'm willing to invest in new gear if I need to to but maybe I don't ?
any advice appreciated.
insoles and some heel retension pads (like J bars) would be a cheaper possible solution.
otherwise you may just have wrong size boots. Or burtons boots arent compatible with your feet... they didnt like mine either.
Go to a good shop that specializes in snowboard gear, try on many boots to try to find ones that are a really good fit, a good fitter can really help to solve problems, also some brands run a little wider/narrower so a different brand might help. Also consider J-bars, little foam wedgie things that go on the side of your insoles to help to keep narrow heels/ankles in place.
Lastly there are inserts to help with this too, others know more about this - superfeet and so on.
