Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Ski boots again

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
My wife has just bought a new pair of boots with footbeds fitted by our local bootfitter, she has small (but quite wide) feet and had a struggle to get any to fit.
My question is how much should you be able to lift your heel? She is worried that they are too long/big, when I tightened them for her it seemed to improve. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Plateau, when standing in the boots there should be no or at worse very little heel lift in the boot, if she trys to lift her foot straight out the boot then it is possible to lift the heel due to the strength of the achillies tendon and the calf muscles

you could take the liner out and do a shell check, in an ideal world with the foot ina the empty shell toes just touching the front there should be 6mm-25mm behind the heel 6mm real tight race fit 15-25 mm comfort fit greater than 25mm bucket [except in exceptional circumstances]

hope this helps a bit

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?
