Pressure Points in Ride Insanos - Need New Boots
I bought a pair of Ride Insanos last Spring. They felt great in the shop and even felt good the rest of last year (probably 5 or 6 days on the hill).
Early this year I started getting terrible pressure points on the very tip of each inside ankle bone. I can manage through the day with it hurting like hell, but it's bad enough that my ankle bones are sensitive to the touch for a few days after riding. Multiple days back to back gets pretty painful.
Long story short I took them to a shop with a boot fitting department and spent 2 hours with two guys at the shop trying to fix it (big props to Sturtevant's in Bellevue!) but nothing worked. We just concluded that the shape of my ankles just hit the wrong spot in the boot.
Anyone have similar problems with Ride Insanos, or other boots? And if so, did you find boots that didn't have the problem?
I need to find some new boots but want to narrow down the search since originally the Insanos felt fine in the shop.
