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.

wrathfuldeity 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)

EatRideSleep Sure!

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.

I'm in the process of buying a new pair of boots but I'm just wondering if how your boots fit can effect your progression?

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.

EatRideSleep Maybe this will help in the short term? http://www.snowboardingforum.com/sno...heel-hold.html
