This. They are amazing. Mine have 3 different areas to tighten. They are heat moldable and I had a boot fitter make custom soles. He also put some sort of material around the ankles of the liners which he said is a thousand times better than j/c bars..... I just know they are AWESOME!

I Think that if they had heal slip from the beginning you should have looked for better fitting boots. I have rented and about to start boot shopping. The rentals never hurt my feet. But I can say from work boot experience that I went into a store wanting a certain boot and walked out with a different one because it just fit right.
The rentals were Burton so that is the Direction I am heading.

Its way easier to pack under the insole to raise the height of the heel than to try and stop the heel from lifting. Tighten the boot as best you can an then pack the bottom up untill the top of your foot fits the top of the boot.

I have narrow heels and had the same problem with Nikes. Especially because they seem to pack out a lot. J-bars, molding, and so on... Nothing helped. Tried Salomon Dialogues afterwards which was a bit better but still no cigar. After a few recommendations by boot fitters I found the Nitro Team TLS. No heel slipping whatsoever because of a very articulated heel cuff. I don't know if you want to buy new boots but if you do, definitely try Nitros and maybe compare them to Salomons.
