    Hi folks, bringing this thread back to life. Iíve been in Waymaker 130s for the last couple of years but broke the alpine toe and canít find a replacement.

    What are high volume footed people skiing in now? From the above posts it sounds like Lange SX series and the Tecnica HVLs are where Iíll start my search.

    If the Waymaker worked for you then you don't need to go as big of volume as the Lang SX or Tecnica HVLs are. Try the new Lange RX, big instep and easy to punch to make wider if needed.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    I gots the high arch/flat foot / narrow heel wide forefoot which my yellow friend tells me is common to the AZN male, basicaly ANY liner with a tongue bugs the navicular bone (inner/top part of foot) mutherfucking google it for pictures

    so when I discovered power wraps it was a religious experience OR at least that must be what religion feels like SO now I own 4 sets of power wraps and they gotta be power wraps, just an intuition will not do because a boot tongue will still bother my Navicular bone

    alpine boot is 4 buckle Dalbello Surge from 2010, AT boot is Vulcan no punches in either boot

    Shoutout to gregL. Saw my post and dug up some Waymaker toes at his shop to send my way.

    Greg suggested the Head Kore 1G and new Hoji Pro as beefy do it all boots.

    In case any high volume footed people find their way to this thread... I ended up picking up the Lange SX120 and enjoyed it for the last few days of the season with no bootwork. The Waymakers are now my sorry excuse of a dedicated touring boot until I find something with enough volume to justify the price tag.

    Wanted to give another shoutout to GregL for sending toepieces for the Waymakers and, more generally, taking the time to share his thoughts with a stranger. His site is here: http://www.randosaigai.com/

    I have a VERY high instep, and a widish forefoot, with a medium/low volume ankle, and large calf. Boots are a nightmare, but I have found a few that work well:

    My Fischer vacuum ranger 130 is what I work in, but I use Zipfits in them, and rather than molding the whole boot I get an instep punch/grind, and a navicular punch. It works fine, and doesn't fuck up the ankle volume, canting, or lean at all.

    I have had great fit with the Atomic Hawx Ultra boots (both the alpine and the XTD touring boot) but I had to use an intuition liner in them, because the stock tongues are WAY too thick.

    I really really love my Fischer travers carbon. They aren't a beef touring boot, but between my boot, but I don't get sendy in the backcountry, I walk up mountains and ski back down.

    I have also had good luck with:

    Punched Head raptors/intuitions
    punched Nordica Patron/intuitions
    Lange RX/RS 130 with zipfits

    I have wide feet. I got fitted for full tilt descendants. They are comfortable for me. Getting into cold full tilt boots are easier than others. thats my only input as i dont know shit about boots

    another sufferer of high arch/large instep but i also have skinny calves.. i've been in technica mach1 MVs the past few seasons, which after a lot of work are tolerable for my feet, and with a booster strap can get tight enough around the calf.
    i still often quit the day with foot fatigue before anything else, so i've been thinking of moving on.
    any recommendations for large instep / low calf volume? does such a thing even exist or should i just consider something with more instep room than my technicas and toss another booster strap on?

    The Lange SX seems to be a good option. Though when I tried them after retiring my RX130s, they were dog shit and didn't go with them. Maybe Lange changed the last?

    In any case, I ended up with some Atomic Hawx Ultra. Some punches and custom liners and they are quite good.

    At the end of the day; it's all about the boot-fitter. Find a good one and commit to multiple visits. Some of the newer shells have reduced those visits, but you still need to start with the right shell. And be prepared to pay retail - always worth it for properly fitting boots.

    Same, I was able to go down a shell size; hope it is better overall control now with a fire/aft that matches my lateral space in a shell fit.

    I'll check out the SX, thanks.
    Part of my problem is that I reside in Wash DC, and either have boot work done by another fitter when I am on mountain somewhere, or I wait til I get back and get work done after the fact.
    Took me 5 or 6 trips to 2 different bootfitters to get where I'm at now, neither pushed me towards a new shell after I asked, but after this many tries and only getting to "okay", I think it's time to start fresh.
    I will probably wait to get fitted until the next trip I take, but I'd like to educate myself before going in so I can avoid bad interactions.
