By visiting a qualified ski boot fitter, you will get a knowledgable, experienced professional to help you find the right boot. A boot fitter will measure your feet and have you try on different pairs of boots.
There are a variety of well-designed ski boots, but each manufacturer’s “last” is different and different brands are known to be suited to different kinds of feet. The right ski boot is comfortable and fits precisely. It’s about matching the skier to the right boot, and then customizing the liner to make the fit perfect. Sometimes actual modifications to the boot itself, are necessary.
Let your boot fitter know how often and at what level you ski. Being honest with your boot fitter will help him or her pick the right ski boot for your feet. It’s also recommended that you try on several brands, as you might not find your perfect fit in a singular brand.
