I haven't heard of any other Simmons boots skater with blisters... EXCEPT ME! Incredible luck! Yeah, I no longer recommend for people to get customs... I think people should try a good stock boot if they have no problems with their feet. Plenty of good quality stock boots out there!

David Simmons is a great guy! He has tried his best to help me with my boot so far. He sent me one of his tools so I would try to fix the problem but I haven't been able to fix it even though I am extremely handy with tools. He also made me 3 videos on how to fix the problem. Since I haven't solved the problem myself, Dave told me to go to his house so he can give it a shot. I think the worst that can happen if Dave can't fix it either, is that I pay him to make me another boot. Hopefully he could make me a rebate or something like that. I'm actually leaning more in this direction that trying to fix the boot.

Though my Pinnacles never gave me blisters, I don't like the way my foot was casted for that boot. It was casted too upright and skating on those boots is hard to balance; in that position, the boot tends to pronate or slip from under you. I would much rather get new Pinnacles than try to rebuild my old ones. Jimmy is in another (much higher) level than when he made my Pinnacles 10 years ago. I think he makes an absolutely fantastic boot these days.
Hasta la Pista!!
