Question Advice on replacing Tecnica TNT Explosion 8 Boots

My Tecnicas have recently developed an ir-repairable crack in the shell. I'm
having trouble finding any suitable boots to replace them with. I have a
wide forefoot , but a narrow heel (size 46) and my Tecnicas have a custom
injected liner and footbed. I'm 198 cm and 100Kg and ski hard. I'm
struggling to find any boots that are wide enough or stiff enough such that
they don't just collapse (boots generally have got softer but thay seem way
too soft for me. Can anyone advise a suitable boot or solution to similar
problem?

I had the same boots and same problem (although I did have to carve out a
bit in the toe box to make way for the tailor's bunions). Salomon makes
wide toe box and narrow heel boots; check out any of the X-Wave 8 through 10
(progressively stiffer). Also the Nordica Beast is an excellent boot with
similar dimensions.
