Moving to Eastern Canada last year from Australia, I decided to take up skiing again after 15 years. I went out in November last year and bought myself some Rossignol Synergy Sensor 80s. They started out okay, but as the winter has progressed and my skiing has gotten better I have realised that at 102mm in the forefoot they are way too wide – my foots swims in them. I must have at least half a centimetre each side of my foot.
I went to a local store and told the bootfitter my problem and he suggested the Tecnica Inferno Blaze, which I tried on and liked straightaway. Problem is that I didn’t 100% trust the bootfitter and I haven’t been able to find a place that sells the same boots.
There’s another store about a 2 hour drive away that has a great reputation and stocks Lange, Tecnica (but only Dragon and Phoenix styles), Rossignol and Fischer. I gave them a call and they said they should have plenty of boots that fit me.
Before driving that far (and shelling out yet more $$$ for boots), I want to make sure they are likely to have boots that fit as well as those Tecnica Inferno Blazes fit me...
I am 190cms tall, 85kgs, size US 12/13 feet, A-width, and at the intermediate level aiming to progress to advanced by the middle of next season.
Any advice you can offer would be very much appreciated.
