How to get the best fit in a rental boot?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

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. 

 

Advice?

"Let me start by going off topic a bit",

 

Read the wiki "Which boot should work for me" at the beginning of this section.
