Couple of ideas for you, both cheap.

1. Buy another pair of socks, one size larger. Chop off the front 1/2 or so of the sock. This functionally makes your heel wider.

2. Buy a pair of heel cups. These go into the boot between it and your sock (as opposed to between socks or something), effectively narrowing the heel of your boot. Specialty boot and shoe stores carry these.

3. Thumbs up to all the different lacing techniques. Best of all, they're free. One of them will probably work, but if not, try either 1. or 2.

Hey guys I figured out how to tie my shoes last week but I'm having some trouble with this speed buckle thingy on my new harness.

Any advice?

I'm going to try that out to see if I can fix the fit on my Scarpa SLs.

I am hoping the heels on the scarpa phantom guides are narrower, anyone compare to ls extremes?
