Ladies SB boots- Definitive narrow foot/no heel lift list
I have an issue with the lack of information for ladies out there regarding sb boots. Flex, yes, stiffness, yes, intermediate vs beginner vs advance, yep that information is all there.
Girls as you know, come in all different shapes, from narrow feet and or calves to large.
Myself, well I am a s/m calved, widish accross knuckles, smallest Achilles ever (thanks to mums thick ankle genetics) tiny footed lady. So for me, boots NEVER fit. The best I have done is Nike ZF1 +foam shim+foam U bar by Tongar tools. The first lace loophole snapped yesterday. Sad. Back to square one.
My first pair of sb boots ever was the Salomon Kiana which I was later told was more idea for people with large calves and broad feet. They ended up in the bin. 32s are a lovely stiff boot, but are too wide for me.
What I would really LOVE is if reviewers like snowboard.findthebest and TheGoodRide would include the actual FIT of the boot ie narrow,med, wide. This I am SURE would help many of those with heel lift problems seek out the best boots for them.
I would like to make a list of boots which us gals can go back to. Boots some of us have had some luck with and why. Please include if you needed to make any adjustments?
I ride: NS Pandora 146 + Salomon Absolute premium Bindings
Stepchild PMS 149 + Nitro Eris Bindings +15 -15
Nike ZF1 5.5 & K2 Contour 5.
