I tried on my friends valos the other day and the length was perfect, but the width was tight in the arch. the other shell didn't have a liner in it and as i was inspecting it, i came across an idea for flat footed/small arched skaters. similar to toe cutting, but arch cutting the boot. seems possible, but i don't have a pair of valo's to experiment with this on my own. i envisioned cutting the arch out enough to fit comfortably and not cutting too high to limit loss of rigidity of the boot. sounds like a justinthursday kinda project. thoughts?
