/ How to cope with boots that are too wide?
Does anyone else have this problem? Any tips for making them fit better? Are superfeet worth the dosh?
I would try a generaly volume reducer in the first instance.
Cotswolds gave me some with a pair of Mantas I got, they are bascally a flat rubber/plastic insert that sits under your footbed making it higher.
You can also get footbeds that are thicker and as well as reducing volume are more spongy and comfortable to wear.
I have the opposite problem, my feet are to wide.
Hoping Altberg will do some winter climbing boots one day, as so far they are the only ones who makes boots wide enough without being 2 sizes to long for me.
If you've deep pockets, nicks advice is best, though if nothing fits, get the one that does best and modify.
Mikkel, I get Altberg in an extra wide (mallastang) for summer and have recently bought La Sportiva Nepal Extreme, which fits great for winter. I only use 1 pair of socks in them as they're warm enough, you do want a finger/thumb width space in the front otherwise you'll lose your toe nails front constantly hitting the front while kicking.
Not really doable due to the construction of most boots as its not just a little bit that is needed.
A little but too flexible for crampons i would have thought.
Mallerstang with a stuff sole and attachment for crampons would be awesome.
