Pleased to say that Richard from Dale Boot UK in Abingdon responded to my messages and I saw him yesterday. He was able to identify the causes and resolve my comfort issues with the boots. Great service and lovely bloke.

They were very tight in the shop on the last buckle but I was assured this was normal and would ease with use.

Had they been off the shelf boots I would have rejected them, but the shells were supposedly moulded specifically for my feet and James was obviously an expert so on that basis I accepted them.

Colin at Bicester had told me that my previous boots were too big as they had to accomodate my high instep which is why he recommended Dale.

Confirmation bias is quite powerful, I assumed this was how properly fitted, custom made boots felt like. In the fitting almost all of the time was spent on the inner boot and it was taken as a given the shells were fine.

Only when I skied in them did the feeling go from being very tight to unbearable pain.

Richard still hasn't replied.

@John1952, the recommendation for dale boot would have been a combination of high instep AND lack of ankle joint range of motion

Not sure how hard you have tried to get hold of Richard, he has been away for a couple of weeks but is back now, phone is always a little problematic as he is on his own in there and if working on a boot getting the phone is a juggling act

The website is www.daleboot.co.uk or the direct e mail is Richard@daleboot.com ( not the same as the .co.uk web site)

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Richard from Dale responded and is very confident he can fix whatever the problem is with the boots.
