Try a ski shop, ski boots are manipulated in all directions, they use air pressure and heat and have lot's of specific tools, pick a good boot specialist.

Thatís tough to accomplish
Short wide feet with a second toe larger than your big toe
The boots only stretch so far.
Custom sounds like the way to go
I know you have purchased several boots but it will be worth it
Boots are the
Most important piece of equipment and will last a long time once they fit
Correctly.
Itís worth the money and it sounds like you need them especially to achieve your professional aspirations

Thanks mate!

I totally agree > custom made.

Today I have purchased another two pairs of boots.
Dutch brands: Raps and Cadomotus Pro 195.
Yup these are old school boots, but Pro 195 fits well in width.

Too bad for me these are antique models...
