I'm experiencing heel lift in one boot only, the right. The left is fine. I've tried different insoles, sole,super feets and the like, but to no avail. What's the received wisdom here?

In reply to neuromancer: different lacing?

In reply to neuromancer:
When you tie the lace, do it as normal until the last 2 hooks. Miss out the second to top hook and go straight to the top, then cross over and go back down to go round the ones that you missed out. Then tie underneath those two. Does that make sense? I just pushes your heel a bit more into the back of the boot. If the explanation isn't very clear then I could try and take some pics for you. Works really well.

In reply to neuromancer: And the other common remedy for having one foot bigger than the other is to wear either a thicker sock or an extra liner to increase your smaller foot's volume. Co:

In reply to neuromancer:

Look at your feet and ascertain any difference between the two if you can (split foot into three; front middle and back, and look at width, height and volume paying special attention to the heels). If you can find any differences it will let you know where to focus your attention.

If the heel is smaller use a heel-lift under your insole. If the volume is less you could try a volume reducer, these can be used whole or cut in half if needs be, and place under the original insole or superfeet if extra volume reduction is required. If the volume is lower around where the arch is located try a tongue depressor.

Failing this a liner sock is a less than ideal way of solving the problem, but may aid in the reduction of friction, both on your heel and the lining of the boot. Hope this helps! links to the three below!

Sandpaper or chisel (your choice) the big heel until it matches the other one ;-)
Less painful, would be to shrink the biggy in the wash OR a sh1t load of Botox in the small heel every 3 months.

I posted a very similar solution a while back. Here's the pics

It sorted out the heel lift in my Vegas and Mantas. Hope it helps.

In reply to neuromancer: apart from heel raisers and volume adjusters another thing is a piece of 3-6mm foam(neoprene is best) over the tongue and lace over to push your heel into the back of the boot,cut in a similar shape to those volume adjusters you get with nepal evos would be good,or bum some of these off a friend who dosent use them.

it would be quicker shaving half an inch off your foot with an electric planer I reckon,
