Let me start going off topic a bit, by saying that already have a pair of boots. 2 actually, but only one that were fitted properly by a fitter that posts here. My other pair were done more hastily (at a shop on the bootfitters list) and the difference in them is pretty amazing. I havent skiid the new ones yet, but the other day, i decided to try on the first pair for a comparison.
Wow. Even with cotton athletic socks on, the slop factor was pretty amazing. Darn sure more comfortable(at this point), but compared to my new ones, i was swimming around in there. And i thought they were tight last year....cant wait to actually ski the new ones.
Anyway, my question. For someone that doesnt own boots, and might only ski a few times a year. Is there something they can do when renting that insures them the best fit? I know the rental places dont generally spend any time, just throw boots at you and if they "feel good", then they are good to go.
