So it only took me 29 years to realize this, and only after finding boots that fit properly (well, at least one...), my right foot/heel is noticeable different from my left. I have found in nearly every boot that I own my left heel sucks in and holds onto the boot like a champ, whereas my right heel slides all over the place. Now that I realize it's not the boots, and actually my foot, I have been trying to find a solution to remedy the nagging slip. So far I have tried superfeet greens to fill some volume of the boot, with mild improvement, as well as using the heel lock lacing technique, again with mild improvement. With both, I notice my heel doesn't slide nearly as bad, but still noticeable in comparison to my other foot. Does anyone have any other techniques that may help? I have considered taping my heel to see if I can add enough volume directly to it to keep my heel in place but haven't made it that far, and on backpack hunts I would rather not have to do that if at all avoidable. I notice my feet "fit" better in some boots, but the boots that fit aren't always the right tool for the job.
