EXCITEMENT!!!! The fit kits are being shipped.
I can't wait to try out the Easyboot Glove on Phebes. Hoping mine will get here by the weekend. At least it will answer the question one way or the other, and I'll know what my options are. I guess it will be the Gloves or the Epics. I like the New Edge boots but they are just too far out of my price range. Just in case the Easyboot Gloves do not fit her lengthwise, I've been thinking in my brain of ways to make the Epics more secure at speed. Karen had suggested getting a size smaller heel strap to replace the ones the Epic comes with. I'm turning around the idea in my mind of how to utilize the foam, and protect the gaiters from getting any foam on them all at the same time. Now I'm expecting someone to say just forget the gaiters and foam on plain old easyboots. But I don't intend to foam for training rides, only for competition. I'm also wondering if the same thing wouldn't work with the gloves to fill in that extra boot length in back? If a person drilled a couple pilot holes in the back could you mix a little foam into a BIG syringe and just squirt a little back there to fill in the back of the boot? I'm even considering play dough or some other soft resilent putty...AM I A DESPERATE PERSON OR WHAT? I so want the gloves to work for her. I think I'm going to head to the barefoot forums and see if anyone has foamed on an Epic without ruining their gaiter.~E.G.
