What can I expect to pay at the bootfitter?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys,

 

     I know a lot of what I will end up shelling out for boots is going to depend on what boot fits my feet, but I would like to start putting some money away for a pair of boots for next season. I'm a beginner and have only taken one lesson so far. I was very much not happy with the rental boots. They felt snug when I tightened them up at first and then quickly became loose. I could feel my feet turn inside the boots before my skis would turn and my right foot began to cramp in the arch area after only wearing them for about a half an hour. So in short, I don't need a high performance ski boot but I would like something that would suit me when I start skiing blue trails well. How much money should I put away?

I'm 5'11 and about 210 pounds with a street shoe size of 10.5 if that helps narrow the range a little.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Garrett

I don't think your question is really answerable on the internet.  It really depends on how much time the bootfitter has to put into your fitting, and the various footbeds and such that might or might not be needed to achieve a good fit.

 

You might try posting this on "Ask the Boot Guys" because those guys know what they're talking about, unlike me.
