Strange one this.....I'm a UK based skier that has skied on a Reflex front boot the last couple of years, with no problems at all.
The season here last year ended for me me around late September. I was still skiing without issue on the Reflex boot. Around late October I travelled to Jodi Fishers site in Orlando for a couple of weeks to train. In this short period of time, It seems that my right inner ankle bone had noticeably enlarged to the extent that my hardshell Reflex boot was too painful to wear.
Upon my return, I saw a specialist who acknowledged that their was a discrepancy between my left and right ankles, but after Xrays and MRI's determined that there was nothing there that shouldn't be. Both he and I are relcuctant to remove bone from the ankle via an operation, so now my only option seems to be to move away from a hardshell.
I'm keen to hear recommendations for bindings that are forgiving in the ankle area. The current Radar Vapour boot looks to be a good bet, but I can't find a dealer in the UK to try one. The fact that I'm a size 14 (US) only makes matters harder....
