Hello Ski Community!
It's my first post so be kind - haha! I decided to take the plunge after a few seasons of skiing and purchased my first pair of ski boots today - I settled on the Nordica Speedmachine 100W. I was a big lurker and did some research and picked a reputable shop that also received excellent boot fitter reviews. But going in there was a whole different experience! I feel pleased with my purchase, I tried on a few different brands, walked around, and did get a custom foot bed. Apparently I have an extremely narrow foot, which these days I'm told makes for a more limited selection and tend to lean more towards the "high performance" boots. About me, I'm 5'7", 145lbs, beginner to intermediate skiier that skis mostly on groomed terrain - greens and blues (I have no grandeur plans of black diamonds in my lifetime :-P ). Now, my boot fitter knew all of this information and said that the boot overall was more advanced then where I'm at, but it would aid me in the long term and improve my technique. From what I've read/heard this sounds about right - I think you should aim for a level higher than you currently are? But after looking at reviews online, I'm worried that I made the wrong boot choice and it may be too advanced for me... It fit like a glove, snug and perfect and I was very pleased but now I'm having a little 1st time boot buyer panic - did I make the right choice? Any re-assuring or even mild scolding is welcome! Thanks for reading this long-winded question :)
