I can testify that method of lacing definitely works. I tried ti past weekend and it worked great.

|2hipp4u||K2 conda system and Northwave 540 heel retention system are a couple that you should really look at. Ditch the used boots and buy some new ones that fit your feet, chances are your used ones are shot anyway.|

Since you got lace up boots, a good short term solution is Dakine Heel Anchors...probably have to find some on-line
read the following and check out a bunch of thread/discussions in that section.
Really try on a lot of boots, get some good fitting footbeds...even get them first, wear them in your regular shoes. Then take them with you when you try on boots....take out the stock one first

Seriously, do yourself a favor and read the forum stickies before you go shopping. Nothing worse than buying another pair of bad boots (meaning bad on your foot, not poorly made)

|MchanicalPnguin||I am going to go and try on some k2 boots tomorrow to check on size before I order, if I can. Honestly I feel like anything is better than the boots I have now, and thanks. I just looked into the J-bars, I hadn't heard of those before and all of those things are somethings I could be doing in the meantime until I find a good pair of boots. I'm glad to know that this is an issue, because I've been beating myself up about not getting any better. thanks everyone!|

Are you able to try the boot fit first, before buying? That's really key.
Also, if you haven't seen it already, wrathfuldeity has a sticky in this subforum about mods you can do for common boot fit issues.

Most definitely, poor fitting boots can affect your riding and heel lift is one of the most common problems (control-wise, at least)
You can try J-bars, ankle wraps, etc. to snug up the fit, but if you bought the boots used, then I'm going to guess that you didn't try on anything else.
Do a search on here for buying boots, there are several threads with good shopping advice.

|MchanicalPnguin||Thanks! that's definitely worth a try until my new boots come in. I'm looking at getting a boa lacing system boot, based on some other reviews I found online about heel lift. thank you!|
