I made a quick video for y'all. It's 2am here in Austin, and my husband is asleep in the next room, so you'll notice I'm real quiet. Yes, 2am. I'm studying Accounting. If you've ever studied Accounting, you'll understand. I've been asked about how I fixed my Bont heel slip before, and I am always so busy that I forget to make a video. But, here it is! It really is way too much to explain via text post, so you'll have to listen to my voice for 5 minutes if you want to find out about it. Here is some info to go along with the video:
When I got my Bonts, they were mostly amazing, but I had tons of heel-slip issues, and lots of space around my ankles. I know others have this issue with their various boots, too, so I figured I'd share my solution. My husband is a snow boarder, and via general snow boarding awareness I found out that snow board boot/ski boot padding exists, and it worked perfectly to snug up my Bonts. Enjoy, and I hope this helps!

They are $4.95 for a pair, so I paid $9.90 for both boots, and I paid about $6 in shipping (I had also bought the padding sheet and the other pads to try, your shipping may be less. But, whatever. WORTH IT.) Moleskin, $7 for a long roll. BAM! I had my heel snug strap put on by a shoe repair place. I had to buy the nylon webbing first and bring it to him to attach, using pictures to explain. I drove to REI to get the webbing, and it's extremely cheap. Having it attached was also super cheap, less than $20. Here is the webbing I used.
