So that's what I feel like every single time I go skiing - the fatted calf. Calf, as in that part of your leg. I have yet to find a boot, in my older years, that actually fit me and where I can actually buckle up the top buckle. It makes me, indeed, feel like a fatted calf - or, rather, one with fatted calves. Seriously, I know I'm not the fattest person to ever ski . . . but, alas, I am probably one of the shortest adults that skis. I am in less than the 5th percentile for my height.
So here is where the problem really is, I am assuming. The boots I get hit me right at the biggest part of my calf muscle. For most people, however (I think), the ski boots would hit them a little bit lower down - perhaps right below their biggest part of their calf muscle. But my leg is super compact (i.e., short) that I just don't have the length of a properly fitted ski boot.
Apparently if I was a rich fatted calf these would suit me and my problem just fine: http://head.com/ski/products/boots/women/adaptedge-100-mya/6370/?region=us
Woe is me and my shortness.
