Topic - If The Boot Fits

mmmhumous on 19 Feb 2013
One of my new B2 boots doesn't quite fit tightly enough: My foot can roll a little (width is OK though) and the heel/ankle aren’t held in place quite firmly enough. It's OK for normal walking/kicking steps, just a bit wobbly on steep ice, and a bit lacking in ankle support.

The other boot is an absolute perfect fit, and both boots are very comfy: I've had no blisters after 5 days out in them on scrambles, snow and vertical ice.

These are what I've got, and I'm wearing them with a thin pair of ergonomic socks, with thicker walking/ski socks over the top:

What can I do to improve the fit on the loose boot (don't think I can get them any tighter). Is an insole, extra sock, or new foot my best option? or are there any cunning tricks/gadgets for my mildly annoying predicament.
