OK Guys, Iím in need of some advice regarding the fit of AT boots vs. the race-fit Langes Iíve been skiing for the last 15+ years. Iíve been to two different boot fitters who both tell me the shell is the right size for my foot, weíve tweaked it in several ways, including custom footbeds, and it has helped, but I still canít get the performance Iím used to without cranking the boot so tight that it kills me. Iím skiing a Garmont Adrenalin, which Iím very happy with while skinning and hiking (with the buckles loosened, of course) but when it comes time to make turns, I feel like I have little control without cranking them down. I have been advised that it might be my technique needs tweaking now, which sounds logical, but Iím looking for a second opinion. Have my Langes allowed me to get lazy? Is it just a matter of getting used to not being as closely connected to my skis? My feet donít slide around in the boot, but I do find myself ďcrabbingĒ with my toes while skiing.
Anyone have any thoughts?
