I've got funny feet - they're wide at the ball but narrow at the heel with a high arch. These boots fitted first off due to the unique fit system, being a bit stiff at first i got one small hot spot on the one heel but i was not tightening the boot onto my foot properly. Done correctlyy it holds your heel in place very securely - not a bit of movement there while your arch is not crushed and your toes can wiggle. The best boots I've ever owned.
