    [Reposted from Equipment, just in case]

    I've been getting increasing worse foot pain from a Morton's neuroma the last few years, and have been advised to get the very widest (in the forefoot) footwear I can.

    My La Sportiva Spectra AT boots still have a lot of life in them, and I've got a couple of weeks backcountry skiing in NZ planned for early September. So I'm keen to see if I can get the shell blown out.

    1) Does anyone know of anywhere in Victoria that does this well?

    2) Failing that, any DIY instructions or links would be appreciated.

    3) Failing that, what's the widest AT boot you know of?

    4) And in case of 3, if anyone wants to buy a pair of 3 year old LS Spectres, 27.5, with plenty of life left (but the cuff strap replaced with a Booster strap) for a couple of hundred bucks (negotiable), get in touch.

    Thanks in advance, Will.
