I tried out my HRT for the first time last night. Although I am happy with how I skied with it, I need to make adjustments to improve the comfort and how it's holding my foot.
The biggest issue was the little toe side of my rear foot being pushed up between my toe and ankle. It felt like I had a left foot binding on my right foot. On the dock after my 1st set, I put my other foot in and felt the same issue so the binding is symmetrical. Looking inside the HRT, I can see that the foot bed is raised on both sides just forward of where an arch support would normally be.
Has anyone else had an issue with this and what did you do to improve the comfort? I really don't want to pull the binding apart to skive some foam off the foot bed if I don't have to.
The other issue has to do with tightness around the toes versus the tightness around the ankle. I am going to try different ways to lace the strings to get the fit tighter around the ankle without over-tightening around the toes.
Has anyone found a different way to improve the snugness around the ankle other than adjusting the way the laces run?
